What is a blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, rejuvenates the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. Age and genetics can cause drooping, sagging, and excess folds to appear, compromising your smile. Eyelid surgery can:

  • Eliminate under-eye bags
  • Remove upper eye puffiness 
  • Reduce the amount of excess skin surrounding the eyes
  • Rejuvenate the overall facial appearance

There are also practical reasons to pursue eyelid surgery. For some, eyesight is restricted by excess fat or skin around the eyes. Eyelid surgery can restore full vision, elevating your quality of life. This procedure is often performed in tandem with facelifts, brow lifts, or rhinoplasties.

A tailored procedure

Dr. Markelov examines each patient’s face so he can tailor the procedure to that person’s specific needs. Depending on his assessment, the procedure is then performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia.

A careful incision is discreetly made along the natural crease of the eyelid or along the lower lash line. It is via those incisions that excess skin can be removed, the muscles tightened, and fat deposits redistributed.

Is eyelid surgery right for me?

Eyelid surgery is a delicate procedure and there are many aspects to consider, as a variety of factors like stretched upper eyelid muscles or forehead and brow skin can affect the area. Generally, if the following factors apply, you could be a good candidate. 

  • You are a non-smoking adult in good health
