The Eyelid Lift, also called Blepharoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure performed to improve and rejuvenate the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. The eyelids are often one of the first places we notice signs of aging such as fatty deposits or puffiness, sagging skin, bags, drooping, fine lines and wrinkles. These signs of aging don’t only make us look older, but can make us look like we are chronically tired or upset. The eyelid lift can create a natural looking rejuvenation that puts that spring back in your step and boosts your self-confidence.

The eyelid lift procedure is performed under intravenous or general anesthesia. The procedure may be performed on just the upper or just the lower eyelids, or both together. The incisions in the eyelid lift are made within the natural creases of the eyelid to hide any scarring, or just below the lower lash line in the case of lower eyelid rejuvenations. After the procedure, some bruising and swelling is to be expected which will fade over time as you heal.
