The eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty procedure, can rejuvenate the eyes and overall facial appearance. The skin and tissue on the upper and lower eyelids can change as you get older. The skin becomes thinner and less firm, sagging on the upper eyelid or drooping below the eyes. Eyelid lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure to remove excess skin or fat while tightening and lifting the eyelid skin. If you have droopy upper eyelids, eye bags and excess wrinkles around the eyes, blepharoplasty may be the solution to help you look more energetic and years younger. Precision Medical Specialists offers advanced options in eyelid lift surgery at our facility in Wellington, FL, including upper and lower blepharoplasty.

Upper Blepharoplasty

Drooping skin and fat on the upper eyelids can make you look older and also appear tired and sad. The delicate skin on the upper eyelids lose its elasticity with age. Once it is stretched and drooping, surgery is the only way to effectively remove the loose skin. A discreet incision along the crease in the upper eyelid can be used to remove excess skin and fat on the upper eyelid. Dr. Rueda can carefully tighten the skin and tissue during an upper eyelid lift to create a youthful and natural eye appearance.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Do you have puffy bags under your eyes and sagging skin? As the skin on the lower eyelid loses elasticity, it can droop and sag below the eyes. Perpetual eye bags, wrinkles and drooping lower eyelids can be corrected with a lower eyelid lift, or lower blepharoplasty. Dr. Rueda offers both traditional and transconjunctival lower eyelid lifts. Traditional blepharoplasty uses an incision under the lower lashes and transconjunctival uses an incision through the inside of the lower eyelid. Both methods remove bulging fat or eye bags, but traditional blepharoplasty is better for removing excess skin and tightening the lower eyelid.

Both lower and upper eyelid lift surgery can rejuvenate the eyes for a more youthful, energetic appearance. Often, both are completed at the same time for a refreshed eye appearance.
