BLEPHAROPLASTY / BROW LIFT
A blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids by removing excess eyelid skin, muscle and fat. This surgery can be performed on both the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both at the same time. Not only can the appearance of the eyelids improve after surgery, but the functional problems related to vision that some patient’s experience due to droopy eyelids can also be improved.
Droopy upper lids can be a result of relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrow. If the upper eyelid/eyebrow droops causing vision restriction, then a brow lift may be an appropriate surgical option as well. A brow lift can help with facial wrinkles, can raise saggy eyebrows, and restore a patient’s overall vision.
