Eyelid surgery, or a Blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can be preformed on the lower eyelids, upper eyelids or both. The purpose of a blepharoplasty is to improve the appearance of the eye and get rid of extra skin or bagginess.
Many of us are familiar with waking up with huge bags under our eyes, however for some people they just do not go away. The lower blepharoplasty (Bleph) is performed to remove the excess skin from under the eye and to improve the shape and outline of the eyelid by adding or removing fat.
Those of us that have heavy upper eyelids can sometimes look tired from the heaviness of the lid, and maybe even a little older from the sagging. In some cases the sagging of the lower lid may hinder your field of vision. In these cases, an upper bleph is necessary to remove the excess skin and fat.
Some of you may be reading this and realize that you may need an upper and a lower bleph. Yes, this is possible and yes they can be done at the same time.
A concern for many patients is the scar from the incision but I can assure you they will be nearly invisible once all healed up. For the upper bleph, the incision is made right along the crease of your eye so after it is all healed, the scar looks no different than the crease line you had prior to the procedure. In the case of a lower bleph, the incision is inside the eyelid or just underneath the eyelashes. In most cases, the incision will be inside the eyelid and completely invisible. However, if the patient has a lot of loose skin underneath the eye that needs to be removed, the incision would be directly under the eyelashes, which still heals very well with minimal scaring.
