What is Blepharoplasty (Eye Lift)?)

Blepharoplasty is an eyelid reshaping surgery that removes excess skin and fat from around the eyelid. There are three types of eyelid reshaping surgical procedures:

Upper Blepharoplasty
To correct “hooding” of the upper eyelid, upper blepharoplasty involves an incision within the crease of the upper eyelid where excess skin and fat is removed.

Lower Blepharoplasty (External Incision)
Used to correct skin excess, wrinkles and puffy bags, lower blepharoplasty is done with an incision made close to the lower lash line.

Lower Blepharoplasty (Internal Incision)
Lower eyelid surgery procedure with an internal incision corrects puffy bags and excess fat under the eyes. An incision is made on the inside of the lower lid, leaving no visible scar. No skin is removed using this type of eyelid surgery.

Blepharoplasty is the medical term for an eyelift. This surgical procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the eyelid and surrounding areas. An Upper Blepharoplasty corrects ‘hooding’ of the upper eye lid, a Lower Blepharoplasty (External Incision) corrects an excess of skin, wrinkles or bags, and a Lower Blepharoplasty (Internal Incision), where a small incision is made on the inside of the lower eyelid, and therefore leaves no visible scar is also used to address bags and excess fat that may be found under the eyes.
