The tissues in the eyelids – skin, fat, and muscle – all sag over time, and bulges develop. Each of these tissues can be addressed during a procedure called blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.
In this procedure, excess skin is trimmed away, and the remaining skin is carefully tightened to remove sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines. Drooping fat is repositioned to even out the area and eliminate puffiness. Muscle tissues are altered in various ways to make them tighter, smoothing out bulges.
Once the surgical rejuvenation of the eyelids is complete, the incisions are closed using stitches or other wound care products.
