Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is the surgical correction of droopy, tired looking eyelids eyelids, and is used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of sagging eyelids. In addition to fixing any vision problems, you will look younger and more alert. More commonly referred to as simply “eyelid surgery,” blepharoplasty is a relatively simple, quick procedure that can not only improve your vision but can make you feel younger and more confident!

How are droopy eyelids caused?

Droopy eyelids can affect both bottom and top eyelids, and are common as we age. As we get older, our eyelids begin to stretch and the muscles that hold them in place begin to weaken. As a result, our eyes can look tired, saggy and in some cases, they can block vision.

A blepharoplasty can be performed for both functional and cosmetic reasons. We have many patients at Hinsdale who need a blepharoplasty to improve their vision, and see the cosmetic benefits as an added bonus. We also have many patients who choose blepharoplasty for the cosmetic benefits alone.

Whichever reason you choose to undergo a blepharoplasty, rest assured that you will get the results that you are looking for at Hinsdale Eye Center.
