Blepharolplasty (Upper And Lower)

Got tired eyes or bags under the eyes? You might want to consider eyelid surgery, also referred to as an eye lift. This procedure, called blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids.

The procedure involves the removal of excess skin, muscle, and underlying fatty tissue. While it is primarily a cosmetic procedure, an eye lift is also an effective method for improving sight in older patients whose sagging upper eyelids obstruct their vision. Upper eyelids may be covered under your insurance plan.

An eye lift will not eliminate dark circles under the eyes, remove crow’s feet, or other facial wrinkles. It is often performed in conjunction with other procedures such as laser resurfacing, filler injections, or forehead lifts.
