Upper Eyelid Lift
Droopy eyelids are a major reason why some people consider eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to remove and tighten excess eyelid skin for a more alert, youthful appearance. As skin ages, it gradually loses its elasticity. A lack of elasticity plus the constant pull from gravity causes excessive skin to collect on the upper (and/or lower) eyelids. The fat that cushions the eyeball from the skull can also cause bulges in the eyelids. During a pre-operative evaluation of factors such as your underlying facial muscle structure, bone structure, and the symmetry of your eyebrows, Dr. Viggiano will decide how much skin, muscle, and/or fat to remove.
