Blepharoplasty removes excessive upper and or lower eyelid skin, through small concealed incisions in the eyelid creases. Excessive fat can also be removed from the eyelids in order to give a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
A Blepharoplasty does not elevate the lower face. This is a separate surgical procedure called Facelift, nor does Blepharoplasty elevate the forehead. This procedure is known as an Endoscopic Forehead Lift.
Most Blepharoplasty candidates are in their mid – 30’s to late 60’s. However, we evaluate patients based on physiologic and not chronologic age. Most healthy individuals that have aging changes that require Blepharoplasty are good candidates.
