What Are the Benefits of Upper Eyelid Surgery?

eyelidDo you feel like you appear tired, even when you are not? Drooping eyelids are often a major contributing factor to a “tired” appearance. In some cases, these drooping eyelids can also obstruct vision. With blepharoplasty, also known as “eyelid surgery” or “eyelid lift surgery,” I can remove any excess skin, muscle, and/or fatty tissue in the area causing ptosis (drooping) of the eyelid. Some benefits of upper eyelid surgery include:

  • More youthful, energized appearance
  • Wrinkle reduction around the eyes
  • Improved vision

Another key benefit is a restored eyelid crease, which may have disappeared due to loose skin or other factors. For some patients, combining upper eyelid surgery with procedures such as a brow lift, facelift, or lower eyelid surgery can lead to improved outcomes, as well.

Individuals who require blepharoplasty to correct obstructed vision may also qualify for insurance coverage for this procedure.
