Upper Lid Blepharoplasty: Eyelid Surgery

The upper lid blepharoplasty procedure involves excising the excess skin, fat and muscle that produces the unattractive fullness and heaviness on the upper eyelids. An incision is made in the lid crease and the excess tissue removed. The scar is concealed in the natural crease line and after healing, is barely noticeable.

Brow Lift and Eyelid Lift for a More Youthful Face

At our South Florida plastic surgery practice, Dr. Becker frequently combines a brow lift with an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). A brow lift will raise the brows into a more youthful position while at the same time opening the eyelid folds. Brow ptosis (sagging) is usually the first sign of aging and sometimes a brow lift is all that is necessary to produce a more youthful facial appearance. I will be happy to discuss your options during your private consultation. An upper lid blepharoplasty can be performed under local anesthetic. A brow lift requires sedation.

Lower Lid Blepharoplasty

There are many surgical techniques available that work to correct problems related to the lower lids. These include:

  • Laser peeling to correct fine lines.
  • Fat injections to correct tear trough deformities (hollowness of the lower lids).
  • Fat pad excision for the following conditions:
    • Trans conjunctival (from the inside of the lid)
    • Through an incision below the eye lashes where the scar is hidden in the natural crease
  • Excision of excess skin through an incision at the lash line.
  • Elevation of the cheeks – By elevating the tissues below the lid, less tension is placed on the lid resulting in a more youthful appearance. An incision is made in the temporal hair line. A special device known as the endotine is then tunneled through the skin and anchored to the cheek tissue.

Eyelid Surgery Rejuvenate Your Face

The eyelid skin is very fine and delicate, and is often the first area of the face to show the early signs of aging. It can be very depressing to see fine lines appear, and the slow droop and sag of the upper lids, or a puffy, unattractive look to the lower lids. A blepharoplasty procedure can restore your face, and leave you looking years younger – and dramatically improves your quality of life.
