Blepharoplasty | Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery 

A blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure of the eyelids. This cosmetic surgery procedure removes bags under the eyes and the extra skin of the eyelids. The blepharoplasty procedure is performed using sedation with local anesthesia. Placement of the incisions is within the normal creases of the eyelids and the appropriate amount of tissue is removed.

In some patients, the upper eyelid blepharoplasty plastic surgery procedure will improve vision by removing the excessive skin of the upper eyelids that can hang down and interfere with peripheral vision. In other patients, the lower eyelid blepharoplasty may tighten up the lower eyelids to make the eyelids appear less round.

Bags under the eyes are a result of extra fat. The lower eyelid blepharoplasty removes or reshapes the excessive fatty tissue and rejuvenates the lower eyelids. Bleparoptosis is droopiness of the upper eyelid and repair of the attenuated muscle is in conjunction with the blepharoplasty procedure.
