Upper eyelid surgery focuses on removing excess skin, fat, and muscle that fall over the natural fold of the eye, creating a small and hooded appearance. Upper eyelid surgery can improve makeup application or even visual acuity by removing excess skin. This technique requires an incision concealed within the natural crease of the eyelid.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid surgery can correct sagging undereye bags through a surgical incision inside the lower eyelid or hidden in the lash line. This allows for access to bags of fat that can be repositioned or removed, along with loose, wrinkled skin. During lower eyelids surgery, fat transfer techniques can be used to fill in tear troughs or sunken, dark circles.

In some women, lax tissue around the eyes can be the first area to show signs of aging and contributes to a sad, disengaged, or even unhealthy appearance. Lower eyelid surgery is an excellent method to improve the contour, and youthfulness of the eyelid by removing sagging, puffiness and drooping tissue around the eyelid.
