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:

  • 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

Along with improved appearance, many patients also experience improved vision after upper eyelid blepharoplasty due to the removal of loose skin that interferes with the line of sight.

Dr. Lee is a dedicated cosmetic surgeon who prides himself on removing just the right amount of skin to help patients achieve their ideal, refreshed appearance without compromising the function of the eyelids. He also works hard to minimize scarring by concealing incisions within the natural contour of the eyelid.
