Eyelid Surgery

The eyelids are frequently the first indicators of aging. Droopy and puffy eyelids can make you look tired, angry or older than you feel. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can rejuvenate the eyelids for a more youthful, natural appearance and restore vision that once may have been partially blocked by excessive skin.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery is a procedure to reshape the eyelids for either functional and/or cosmetic purposes. Removing, repositioning or reshaping excessive skin and underlying fatty tissue around the eye may give patients improved peripheral vision and a more youthful appearance.

How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?

Eyelid surgery usually takes 40 minutes to a little more than an hour, depending on the number of procedures Dr. Mohadjer will be performing. These procedures may be done awake or with sedation, depending on your personal needs and desires.

To lift and tighten both the upper and lower eyelids and to contour fat deposits, discreet incisions are made in the natural folds and creases of the lids. Excess fat, muscle, and skin may be removed. During lower eyelid surgery, the incision is made inside the eyelid. Excess fat and skin are removed or repositioned as necessary. Scarring is minimal and the incision lines typically fade within a few months of surgery.

Eyelid surgery can leave the skin around your eyes looking and feeling firmer, well-rested, and years – even decades – younger.
