Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a very popular and effective technique used to improve the appearance and function of your eyelids. Just like other areas of your body, your eyelid skin can lose elasticity as you grow older. This can cause sagging of the upper eyelids and bags under the eyes. Not only can this make you look older and tired, drooping eyelids can also interfere with your vision.
At Pacific Eye Surgeons we perform eyelid surgery as an outpatient procedure.
Because the incisions are made in the natural creases, scarring is usually minimal. To achieve the most natural-looking results, it is important to have eyelid surgery performed by a board certified eyelid surgery doctor that has extensive training and experience with this delicate procedure. Our surgeon has a strong track record of successful procedures and can share their experience and results with you.
