As we age, the skin around our eyes can begin to sag and droop, creating a tired or aged appearance. In some cases, excess skin and fat can even obstruct vision. An eyelid lift can restore a more youthful and rested appearance to the eyes while also improving the field of vision.
What is an Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)?
An eyelid lift is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the eyelids by removing excess skin and fat. Also known as blepharoplasty, the procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids or lower eyelids, or both, depending on the patient’s needs.
Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure performed with general or local anesthesia. Depending on your unique procedure, Dr. Stile may make incisions within the natural crease of the eyelid or the lower lash line. He then removes excess fat and skin to create a smoother, more lifted appearance. The surgery typically takes up to two hours.
