Upper lid blepharoplasty
The heavy excess skin and fat of the upper eyelid can be removed through an incision in the natural crease of the lid to provide a more youthful, rested appearance.
Lower Lid Blepharoplasty
The fat puffiness below the eye can be surgically removed through a small incision on the back surface of the eyelid. No skin incision is made and healing is more rapid. The excess skin of the lower eyelids can be removed and lifted in combination with removal of fat bulging to give a more smooth appearance of the lower lid.
