The eyes can be the most flattering facial feature when they look bright and alert. Unfortunately, the eyes are also one of the first features to change as you age. The delicate skin on the upper and lower eyelids can sag, wrinkle and droop, creating a tired and older appearance. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can rejuvenate the upper and lower eyelids to restore a bright and alert appearance. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer upper and lower blepharoplasty at our medical clinic in Miami.

Upper Eyelid Lift Surgery
Upper blepharoplasty is one of the most sought-after facial cosmetic surgeries due to the amazing transformation it can achieve. The upper eyelid skin is prone to stretching and sagging with age as it loses collagen and elastin. The skin and fatty tissue can droop on the upper eyelid, making the eyes look tired. Women with sagging upper eyelids can have difficulty wearing eyeshadow or liner due to the loose skin.
With an upper eyelid lift, a small incision is made in the crease of the eyelid to access the extra skin and tissue. Any excess fat or skin in the upper eyelid can be removed and the skin can be tightened. This creates a firmer, smoother upper eyelid with less wrinkles or droopy skin, revealing more youthful and energetic eyes.
Lower Eyelid Lift Surgery
On the lower eyelids, the sagging skin and fatty tissue can create bags under the eyes and enhance dark circles. Aging eyelids can make a person look perpetually tired with eye bags that do not go away with a good night’s rest. No amount of makeup or topical creams can firm or hide loose lower eyelid skin. The best solution is lower blepharoplasty to rejuvenate and tighten the lower eyelid.
With lower eyelid lift surgery, puffy bags under the eyes can be removed. An incision can be placed inside the lower eyelid to access the skin and fatty tissue below the eye. The excess fat and tissue that create bulges under the eyes can be removed and the skin tighten. The result is a smooth transition between the eyelid and upper cheek for a firm, youthful appearance that makes the eyes look wide awake and alert.
Is Blepharoplasty Right for You?
If your eyes look sleepy, tired or have sagging skin/wrinkles, blepharoplasty may be the best option to revitalize your appearance. Good candidates for blepharoplasty are healthy, non-smokers who have sagging or drooping upper or lower eyelids. Many people undergo both upper and lower eyelid lifts at the same time or combined with other cosmetic surgeries like a brow lift or facelift. Dr. Ali Charafeddine can discuss which procedures would best benefit your appearance and achieve the results you desire.
Upper and lower blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the eyes and the overall youthfulness of the face.
