Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyes. There are two types of eyelid surgery: upper and lower eyelid. Upper eyelid surgery addresses sagging skin and excess fat and leaves the upper eyelid skin tighter. Lower eyelid surgery rejuvenates the lower eyelid by addressing bags under the eye.
During your initial consultation the surgeon examines your eyelids while you explain your goals for surgery. The surgeon will make recommendations for you based on your physical needs and aesthetic desires.
Also known as: Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Lift
