What is Eyelid Cosmetic Surgery? Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), the surgeon cuts, repositions, or removes the skin, fat, or muscles in the eyelid to give an eye lift effect. This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons. Dr. Mehryar (Ray) Taban is an expert eyelid, orbital, and facial plastic cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Taban uses the latest technology to provide fast recovery times and a more natural look.
Types of Eyelid Surgery There are three major types of eyelid surgery. • Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty: It is done on the lower eyelid and is mostly used for modifying eye bags or improving the wrinkled appearance of skin around the eyes. • Upper Eyelid Surgery: This is mainly used to address functionality. Among the elderly, the upper eyelid may lose its normal elasticity, leading to drooping and inversion. This can lead to loss of vision and daily activities such as reading, writing or driving. Hence, undergoing upper eyelid surgery can restore the function of the affected person. • Double Eyelid Surgery: It is a type of blepharoplasty which creates a visible crease in the upper eyelid when the eye is open.
Causes Of Eyelid Surgery..... This condition also can be caused by a problem with the muscles lifting the eyelid, called levators. Sometimes a person's facial anatomy causes difficulties with the levator muscles. An eye tumor, neurological disorder or systemic disease like diabetes are other causes of drooping eyelids.
