Upper Eyelid Surgery
The most common signs of aging in the upper eyelids are loose skin and excess “Fat Pockets,” resulting in a sad or tired appearance. Upper Blepharoplasty is the medical term used to describe upper eyelid surgery. Excess skin and fat are removed via an incision in the natural crease. Muscles resulting in frown lines between the brows can also be modified to diminish the lines.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
The most common signs of aging in the lower eyelids are loose skin, excess “bulging” fat, and droopiness.
Lower Blepharoplasty is the medical term used to describe lower eyelid rejuvenation. Apparent excess fat is repositioned and or removed and redundant skin excised. The lower eyelid is usually also tightened (canthopexy) to correct or prevent future droopiness. Incisions are made on the inside of the lid, the outside or combination depending on the degree of aging.
