Eyelid Surgery to Enhance Your Appearance

Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty or eye lift, removes excess skin, muscle and fat. People seek cosmetic eyelid surgery to enhance their eyes and perhaps look younger overall. Blepharoplasty may also be done for medical reasons if loose or sagging skin is impairing your field of vision. If you’re considering eyelid surgery, probably foremost on your mind is how surgery will change your appearance. Here, a leading cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Light, provides striking before and after images. Take a peek—you might get an idea of what surgery could do for you.
