A blepharoplasty, also called eyelid surgery, is a procedure that improves how the upper or lower eyelids look. It removes fat and excess tissues from the lids while tightening necessary muscles to reduce bags, sagging, or drooping.

Many patients choose to have blepharoplasty for cosmetic purposes, as they can help reduce the severity of wrinkles, droopiness, and sagging under the eyes. With a blepharoplasty, you can look younger and more alert.

Other patients may need to have blepharoplasty for medical reasons. These patients have excess skin around the eyelids that can obstruct vision and the visual field. Getting blepharoplasty can make it easier to see and significantly improve their quality of life.

Dr. Garland will create a small incision in the eyelid’s natural crease during the blepharoplasty procedure. Any scarring will be minimal as it’s hidden in the natural crease.

He will then remove any excess skin and fat that may obstruct vision and tighten muscles in the surrounding area. You will be sedated with local anesthesia so that you won’t feel any pain.

Good candidates for blepharoplasty are patients with realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve. They are in good health and want to improve their appearance or remove excess skin to see better.
