Age and gravity can affect every part of the face over time, including the eyelids. If you’re looking for a way to rid yourself of a “tired” look, droopiness, or other cosmetic issues tied to getting older, Philadelphia cosmetic surgeon Dr. John Lee can help rejuvenate the area around your eyes with blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of the upper eyelid and/or lower eyelid. The procedure involves careful incision into the eyelid and removal of excess skin and fat to relieve the visible signs of aging. Tightening and repositioning muscle and other tissue can further enhance the patient’s appearance. Blepharoplasty is a suitable treatment for a variety of aesthetic issues affecting the portion of the face around the eyes, including:Blog
- Bags or fat pads under the eyes
- Puffiness in the upper eyelid
- Wrinkles, folds, drooping, and other changes that give the eyes an aged look
