Many people in their early to mid-30s begin to notice a tired appearance around their eyes. This is may appear as a fullness or puffiness of the eyelids, caused by the accumulation of excess skin and/or fat. This fat is independent of body weight. It is originally under or behind the eye and slowly moves forward with the aging of the eyelid tissues. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can help restore a more youthful and rested appearance to the eyes.

Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery, commonly known as an eyelid lift, helps to reduce sagging eyelids and remove excess fat. Sometimes referred to as blepharoplasty surgery. this procedure helps to reduce obstruction of vision caused by drooping eyelids and restore a more youthful appearance. Blepharoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed on the face, and involves the surgical removal of fatty tissue, excess skin, or muscle tissues.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
Lower eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure that helps to reduce the appearance of undereye circles and bags. This common cosmetic procedure can help reduce fatty deposits, wrinkles, and eyelid sagging that commonly occurs as we age. Lower eyelid surgery can help restore a more youthful, awake appearance!
Ptosis surgery is covered by most insurance plans, as the drooping of the upper eyelid will often obstruct vision. Ptosis commonly occurs due to the weakening of the attachment between the levator muscle and the eyelid, which can be corrected during an outpatient procedure called Ptosis surgery. Ptosis surgery differs from blepharoplasty, which is intended to remove extra skin, muscle, or fat.
