Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that rejuvenates the appearance of the eyelids. As we get older, the eyes often play a big part in making us look tired and older. Sagging, droopiness and even vision impairment can develop as the skin of the eyelids loses elasticity because of the aging process.
Eyelid surgery can be combined with other procedures such as a brow lift or a nose job. Scheduling a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andre Aboolian will ensure that you have the best results possible.
Typically, the steps involved with eyelid surgery are anesthesia, the incision, suturing and recovery. The incision steps can vary depending on the goals of your procedure. There are different techniques involved with an upper eyelid lift versus a lower eyelid lift. Lower eyelid procedures may also call for fat removal to remove bags.
