Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty ("eyelift") is an outpatient procedure that reduces excess fat and skin in the upper eyelids that, if left untreated, can interfere with normal vision. During the procedure, incisions are made along the contour of the eyelid crease to remove the fat. Incisions made are barely visible, leaving evidence that will fade over time.
Blepharoplasty is often recommended if a significant improvement in the visual field can be achieved.
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty reduces excess fat and skin in the lower eyelids by making incisions (either inside or outside the lower lid) and removing the fat. Incisions made inside the eyelid are not visible; incisions outside the eye are barely visible and gradually fade.
