Eyes are one of the most expressive parts of the human body. Happiness, anger, joy and youthfulness can all be expressed through the eyes. Much of this comes from the movement of eyelid. As we age, eyelids can begin to droop, causing an older and often sad look.

Do I Need an Eyelid Lift?
While eyelid lifts are most often performed for cosmetic reasons, they may also be medically necessary, as drooping upper eyelids may impair vision. Other signs that blepharoplasty may be needed include:
- Sagging eyelids
- Dark circles under eyes
- Under-eye bags
- Droopy eyelids
- Wrinkled eyelids
Determining whether or not you need eyelid surgery is best handled by an experienced medical professional. While blepharoplasty is the general medical term for an eye lift, there are, in fact, several different kinds of eyelid lift surgery.
How Does Eyelid Lift Surgery Work?
Eyelid lift surgery is broken down into two main categories:
- Upper Eyelid Lift: An upper eyelid lift seeks to correct drooping, sagging and even damaged upper eyelids. This type of blepharoplasty removes excess fat and skin, all while helping to correct wrinkles.
- Lower Eyelid Lift: A lower eyelid lift is focused on correcting under-eye bags, wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes. This is done by utilizing skin tightening and other advanced techniques.
Eyelid lift surgery is one of the most advanced cosmetic procedures available. Because of the sensitivity of the eyelid and the area surround the eyes, every precaution is taken to avoid unsightly incisions or pain. Anesthesia is utilized and the operation is performed while you are not awake.
Blepharoplasty can also be used to correct protruding eyeballs and reduced line-of-sight due to eyelid health issues.
