Eyelid Lift

Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery Refreshes The Appearance of Your Eyes

Our eyes are one of the first things that people notice about us. As such, they are an important part of our overall appearance. As we age, the delicate skin around the eyes can appear puffy or saggy. Eyelid skin stretches and droops, muscles weaken, and the normal deposits of protective fat around the eye bulge. Eyelid surgery to remove these excess tissues (skin, muscle, or fat) is called blepharoplasty.

How Can an Eyelid Lift Help Your Appearance?

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids for either cosmetic or functional reasons. Often people choose cosmetic blepharoplasty to improve their appearance by making the area around their eyes firmer. This refreshes the appearance of your eyes giving them a more youthful look. Dr. Rhonda Barrett, a board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, specializes in eyelid lift surgeries and is passionate about helping her patients achieve their desired outcomes.

How Can an Eyelid Lift Help Your Vision?

There are also medical reasons for why you may need an eyelid lift. When heavy upper eyelid skin drapes across the eyelid margin and blocks vision, it is considered a functional problem rather than cosmetic. Heavy upper eyelids can often cause difficulty with driving, working, or reading. Eyelid surgery can correct this problem and many patients report improved vision and comfort levels. Many insurance providers cover this surgery. Dr. Rhonda Barrett will evaluate whether you are likely to qualify. Schedule a consultation to learn more about this procedure.
