Blepharoplasty ~ Tightening the Upper Eyelid

Dermatochalasis is the term for extra, sagging eyelid skin. This extra skin gives eyes a tired, hooded appearance. When it is severe enough the eyelashes are covered by skin and eventually the upper visual fields are reduced, affecting vision. A blepharoplasty procedure entails the surgical removal of this extra skin. The resulting scar is hidden within the natural eyelid crease, and the resulting eyelid appears natural and younger. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
