Eyelid Surgery or Blepharoplasty

Enhances the eyes…

Definition and objectives

This procedure can remove excess skin and/or fat at the upper and/or lower eyelids, which are often the cause of a tired look. It can be performed on patients over age 30.

A blepharoplasty can be performed alone or combined with another aesthetic surgery of the face (frontal lifting, temporal lifting, facial and neck lift, centrofacial lifting), and/or a chemical peel.

Procedure and scars

Most often performed under local anesthesia, sometimes associated with mild sedation, this procedure often gives very good results.

The scar is located at existing skinfolds, is very discreet and even invisible in the long term.

When there is only an excess of skin, this is removed. If it is associated with an excess of fat, it is either removed or repositioned to correct the potential 'tear trough' hollow below the eyes.

In some cases, only the fat is protruding with no skin excess, the surgeon then performs a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, i.e. internally, leaving no scar.
