Eyelid Surgery – Blepharoplasty Procedure – Philadelphia Philadelphia

Puffiness and sagging of the eyelids can leave you looking tired and old. In extreme cases, sagging of the upper eyelids can even impair vision. Eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can tighten the skin or remove excess fat. There is a difference between upper and lower eyelid surgery.

The basic steps of an eyelid surgery are anesthesia, the incision, suturing and recovery. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ryan Hoffman to determine what type of technique is right for you. Droopiness of the upper eyelid requires an incision along the natural crease so fat deposits can be removed and skin tightened. Lower eyelids can involve a transconjuctival incision, which is made on the inside of the lid to remove excess fat and hide scarring.
