What is Eyelid Surgery?
This procedure is called blepharoplasty and there are two main methods of reducing lower eyelid bagginess and loose skin.
The first method is via the inside of the eyelids and is good for those with baggy eyes, but not a lot of loose skin. Some patients may have minimal loose skin in which case laser can be employed to reduce the wrinkles and tighten the loose skin to some degree.
If you have excessive loose skin, an outside the eyelid procedure is employed. This can be a full incisional blepharoplasty or a pinch blepharoplasty.
For the upper eyelid, the procedure can include excision of skin, muscle and fat, or just the main component that is causing the loose skin. A brow lift or forehead thread lift is sometimes needed to elevate the eyebrows.
