We believe that total eye health includes the delicate skin around the eye. Cosmetic concerns such as tired-looking droopy eyelids, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles can affect vision quality, as well as how we view ourselves.
What is cosmetic Eyelid surgery?
An eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) is a surgery that addresses many concerns of upper and lower eyelids, including:
- Loose or sagging skin that affects the natural contour of the upper eyelid
- Sagging skin that obscures vision or sits on the eyelash
- Puffy eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping lower eyelids that expose the white below the iris
- Excess skin and wrinkles around the lower eyelid
This procedure is the most common facial cosmetic surgery and has the highest level of patient satisfaction.
How it works:
- An eyelid lift involves removing excess skin, muscle, and fatty tissue from the upper and lower eyelids.
- Surgery on the upper lid is performed through a crease incision to reduce excess tissue and to form a natural crease. Surgery on the lower lid is typically performed inside the eyelid to hide the incision completely.
- Fat prolapsed in the lower eyelids can be sculpted or repositioned to give a more youthful appearance and to fill in hollow, dark circles under the eyes.
- Lower lid wrinkles are improved by tightening the skin at the outside corner, lateral canthopexy, a combined peel, or skin removal.
Who can benefit from the procedure?
Healthy, non-smoking individuals with no severe medical or eye conditions that could impact healing are the best candidates for cosmetic eye surgery.
When droopy eyelids affect visual function, these procedures may be covered by your insurance. Specific testing and documentation will be performed to assess your qualification for insurance coverage.

WHAT RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT AND WHEN?
As swelling and bruising subside, the results will reveal a smoother, better-defined eyelid and eye area and a more youthful, well rested overall appearance.
Healing time is unique to each patient, though most patients are comfortable being in public within 10–14 days. Final results are visible within a few months of the procedure.
