Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Kansas City
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure performed on the eyelids to reduce the appearance of excess or drooping skin around the eyes that make make both men and women look older, puffy, or tired all the time. Blepharoplasty can be done to improve the look of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, and we perform all types of eyelid surgery in our Kansas City clinic.
A blepharoplasty is also considered an “eyelift” surgery, because the eyelids are lifted to reduce the appearance of aging and drooping skin around the eyes.
To create a firmer upper eyelid contour, an incision is made within the natural crease of the upper eyelid. The underlying muscles and tissue are later tightened, fat deposits are repositioned, and excess skin is removed. If the lower eyelid is also involved, a second incision is also made to tighten sagging muscles, redistribute fat, and remove excess skin. Read the details provided below to give you a better idea of what is involved in the eyelid surgery procedure.
