Eyelid rejuvenation

Eyelid Rejuvenation Surgery is a procedure to remove fat, excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below the eyes, which may even interfere with a patient's vision.

Candidates include men and women, usually above age 35, who have drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags below their eyes. If such physical characteristics run in your family, you may consider having eyelid surgery at a younger age.

The procedure involves an incision made along the natural lines of your eyelids. The surgeon separates the skin from underlying tissue, removes excess fat, then trims sagging skin and muscle. In some instances, surgery of the lower eyelids can be performed without an external scar. Fat is removed using an incision within the internal portion of the lower eyelid, correcting the bagginess. Skin tightening is then performed using a laser or chemical peel.
