What Blepharoplasty Involves
In order to perform blepharoplasty
to reduce the appearance of sagging skin under or above your eyelids, Dr. Taylor will make incisions in the creases above your eyelids or in an inconspicuous area directly under your lower eyelashes. Once the incisions are made, any excess fat, loose muscles, and excess skin can be removed. Sutures are then used to close the incisions, tightening loose skin and restoring a more youthful look to the areas around your eyes.
What Comes Next
Once Dr. Taylor has finished tightening the loose skin around your eyes, you may experience a small amount of swelling and redness in the areas around the incisions.
