COSMETIC EYE PROCEDURES

Surgery to correct drooping of upper or lower eyelids is called “blepharoplasty.”

Do your upper eyelids droop to the point that you find yourself:

  • Tipping your head back so you can see better?
  • Raising your eyebrows to lift your eyelids?

Blepharoplasty Blepharoplasty

Drooping of the upper eyelids are often caused by problems with the muscles that lift the eyelid. This condition, called “ptosis,” can make a person look older, but can also cause vision problems.

Using laser or scalpel, the surgeon simply makes an incision along the natural fold lines of the upper eyelids to remove excess fat and skin. Similarly, fat is removed from the inside of the lower eyelids. Sutures close and retighten the lids, resulting in unobstructed vision and a more youthful, pleasant expression. Other procedures remove tumors and repair injuries or irregularities.

Lower eyelids that turn outward (“ectropion”) or inward (“entropion”) can often be brought back to a normal position.
