Blepharoplasty

Eye Lift Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas

Blepharoplasty, or eyelift surgery, is a procedure done to restore a more youthful appearance to the area around the eye. This can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. These factors cause the appearance of excess skin. As we age the fat pockets around the eye start to bulge. The resulting effect on the upper eyelids is that the skin hangs and sometimes can even obstruct vision. More often though it just leads to a “tired” appearance and in women, can cause makeup smudging. On the lower lids, the effect is bulges, or “bags”, and wrinkles.

Things which may contribute to sagging eyelids include:

  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Sun damage
  • Hereditary factors
  • Skin losing elasticity

How Is The Procedure Done?

The lids are “lifted” by removal of excess skin and when indicated, a small amount of fat is also removed. The upper lid blepharoplasty is done through an incision made in the upper eyelid crease. The procedure can be done with an incision just beneath the lower lash line. A different incision on the inside of the lower lid can be done for those with not much skin excess but who have bulges with the appearance of dark circles. In that case, no skin is removed.

What Blepharoplasty Will & Will Not Do

Having a blepharoplasty will not necessarily take away dark circles under the eyes or treat crow’s feet. Depending on the cause, some of these issues can be addressed with other procedures, such as Botox or Dysport and HA fillers. Some people who have “sagging lids” may not actually need a blepharoplasty. In some cases, it is sagging brow skin that causes a similar appearance. In that case, a browlift procedure is needed in order to keep the brow skin from sagging over the upper eyelid region.
