Eyelid Surgery

You might consider eyelid surgery or a Blepharoplasty if drooping or sagging eyelids make you look tired or old, keep your eyes from opening completely or pull your lower eyelids down. Removing excess tissue from your upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both can improve vision and make your eyes appear younger and more alert. Blepharoplasty may be an option if you have:

  • Baggy or puffy upper eyelids
  • Excess skin of the upper eyelid that interferes with your vision
  • Droopy lower eyelids, which may cause white to show below the iris (colored part of the eye)
  • Excess skin on lower eyelids
  • Bags under your eyes  Blepharoplasty can be performed at the same time as another procedure, such as:
