Blepharoplasty FAQs

What is it?

Eyelid surgery may be performed to rejuvenate puffy, saggy, or tired looking eyes and improve vision. By removing excess skin, muscle, and fat from the upper or lower lids fine wrinkles, bags, and droopy eyelids may be corrected.

Am I a good candidate?

A good candidate for eyelid surgery has realistic and positive goals in mind. Below is a listing of some common conditions that may be corrected by eyelid surgery.

Excess skin or fat that changes the natural fold of the upper lids

Loose upper lid skin that may obscure normal vision

A puffy appearance to the upper or lower eyelids

Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelids

Bags and circles under eyes

Lower eyelid droopiness

How can I learn more?

If you are seriously interested in having cosmetic plastic surgery the best way for you to find out what procedures might benefit you the most is to schedule an in-depth consultation with Dr. Glenn Jelks.

Summary

Upper eyelid surgery removes wrinkled folds of skin on the upper lids that can create hooding, and lower eyelid surgery removes puffy under eye bags.

Incisions follow the natural contours of your upper and lower lids and blend into natural creases.

After surgery your appearance is brighter, more alert and rested.
