Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Eyes are a prominent feature of your face. They have been called the "gateway to the soul". The globes themselves are expressionless. The eyelids and the surrounding skin and muscles express our emotions. Their appearance and movement attract constant attention. Age can show during animation and at rest. Blepharoplasty is a series of different operations for reshaping and adjusting the lids for both cosmetic and functional problems.

The eyelids protect your eyes. The outer covering is skin, the inner layer is lined with mucosa. Muscles close and open the lids. The tarsal plate made of cartilage provides the support for each lid edge. Glands in the lids add some of the secretions to lubricate the eye. Eyelashes also help shield the eye. There is a delicate balance between the different components.

If your eyelids look old, you will look old. As the lids age, the skin wrinkles, becoming redundant, and less opaque. Wrinkles can be only over the lids or extend beyond the eyes to become "crow's feet". Redundant skin on the upper eyelids can become so excessive as to hang beyond the lashes obscuring vision. The extra weight can make it difficult to open your eyes.

As the eyelid muscles and skin age, they sag, creating bulges. Appearance can sometimes be improved by removing some of the fat behind the muscles and or redraping the muscles.

Blepharoplasty surgery has limitations. Severe lower lid redundancies are called festoons. Notice the redundant skin on both the upper and lower eyelids. Surgery alone does not affect color changes or transparency of the skin. Laser resurfacing could improve these results. This patient treated the transparency and darkened skin with makeup (not shown here for more accurate documentation).
