Upper Eyelid Surgery Basics
During upper eyelid surgery, your surgeon places an incision in the eyelid crease so that the scar remains hidden when the eyes are open and extremely faint when they are closed. This procedure rejuvenates the eye area, helping patients look younger, more alert, and well rested. It can also address drooping skin that has begun to intrude from above into a patient’s field of vision.
Lower Eyelid Surgery Basics
During this procedure, your surgeon creates a small incision along the lower eyelids, either inside each lid or outside along the lash line, to provide access to the area below each eye. From there, your surgeon will remove and reposition fat deposits, bulging muscle tissue, or excess skin to refresh and rejuvenate your eyes. This eyelid surgery is often combined with fat grafting or fat transfer to the lower eyelid.
