Eyelid surgery removes the excess skin and sometimes fat of the upper and lower eyelids to restore that youthful look. As we age, the upper eyelid skin will often become redundant and it is a fairly simple procedure to remove this excess skin without producing that hollowed skeleton appearance which both makes it obvious someone has had surgery, but also actually makes one look older! Like much of cosmetic surgery, a more conservative approach will give a more natural look.
In addition to upper eyelid skin excess, the lower eyelids can develop ‘bags’. These too can be treated by the careful removal of a small amount of skin and either removing or repositioning the fat underneath. The lower eyelid is often tightened at the same time to complete the rejuvenation process.
