What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also called an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty, is a facial cosmetic procedure performed to brighten the smile and rejuvenate the facial expression. Sagging skin in the upper lids and puffiness and bags in the lower lids can be beautifully eliminated, leaving behind a more youthful appearance. In some cases, blepharoplasty can even help restore eyesight when low-hanging lids are obscuring the patient’s field of vision. Blepharoplasty in Nashville can be combined with a brow lift, facelift, or facial fat transfer to provide a more comprehensive anti-aging solution.

How Can an Eyelid Lift  Help?

Here are some ways eyelid surgery can help you:

  • Removes excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids
  • Treats loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
  • Removes excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
    Treats bags under the eyes
  • Corrects droopiness of the lower eyelids, which can show white below the iris (colored portion of the eye)

The incision lines for eyelid surgery are designed for scars to be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region.

Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid surgery is performed to remove excess sagging skin and fat in the upper lids that may contribute to a tired, angry, or sad facial expression. In addition to addressing eyelid hooding, the procedure can soften crow’s feet and other wrinkles in the upper eye area. Incisions are created within the natural creases of the upper eyelids.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid surgery can help to combat puffiness and under-eye bags, allowing a more refreshed, youthful countenance to emerge. Incisions are created inconspicuously within the lower lash line or inside edge of the eyelid. Excess fat, skin, and tissue are removed, and the muscles are repositioned and tightened. Incisions are then closed with fine sutures.

Am I a Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Dr. Burgdorf wants to ensure that blepharoplasty will be a safe and successful option for you in your quest for facial rejuvenation. He will conduct a detailed consultation process, evaluating your skin quality and elasticity as well as thoroughly reviewing your medical history. Ideal candidates are healthy non-smokers who are free from any uncontrolled medical concerns, such as diabetes or hypertension. They should have a realistic and positive outlook toward their results, understanding that plastic surgery brings improvement rather than perfection.

Introducing Upneeq

Approved by the FDA to address upper eyelid sagging, Upneeq is a prescription eye drop made of oxymetazoline hydrochloride.
