Your eyes are one of the first things people notice about you. Sagging eyelids and bags underneath the eyes can be inherited, or can be part of the normal process of aging, making us look tired or sad. Changes around the eye, such as descent of the eyebrows or cheeks, can accentuate these changes even further.
Blepharoplasty can correct sagging eyelids by removing excess skin, fat, or muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Cosmetic blepharoplasty is designed to improve the appearance of our eyes. Blepharoplasty can sometimes be covered by insurance if felt the upper eyelids actually block the peripheral vision. For certain patients, blepharoplasty is combined with a browlift or cheek lift for optimum results.
