What Are the Benefits of Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery?

EyelidYour eyes are the gateway to your personality, and they can instantly express emotion, fatigue, and, in many cases, age. As time passes, the delicate skin of the eyelids begins to weaken and lose elasticity, typically causing the lids to droop, become puffy, or develop wrinkles. These effects can create a tired or angry appearance even if you feel well rested and happy. Fortunately, our experienced facial plastic surgeon Ali Sepehr, MD can perform eyelid surgery, which can help to rejuvenate the face with natural-looking results.

Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is designed to reduce excess fat and skin on either the upper or lower lids, or both, as determined by your anatomic needs and expressed goals. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sepehr will develop a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your desired outcome and utilizes the most advanced techniques available. Blepharoplasty is a procedure that often will be combined with other rejuvenating methods, such as a browlift. If you only experience skin laxity on your eyelids, however, eyelid surgery alone may be enough to provide significant enhancement. Dr. Sepehr will speak with you about your options during the consultation, and he will never recommend an unnecessary treatment.

One of the most popular benefits of eyelid surgery is the ability to make the eyes look more open, happy, and inviting. The right techniques help to provide natural-looking results and avoid the appearance of surgery. After the operation, most patients report that their friends and family comment that they seem more relaxed, energetic, and happy without being able to determine the reason for this change. When performed by a skilled surgeon, this procedure typically produces a beautiful, lasting effect.
