Eyelid Surgery

If You’re Considering Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is a procedure to remove fat and excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, it won’t remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. While it can add an upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes, it will not erase evidence of your ethnic or racial heritage. This procedure can be done alone, or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or browlift.

If you’re considering eyelid surgery, Dr. Klink can give you a basic understanding of the procedure–when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect.

The Best Candidates for Eyelid Surgery

The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in their expectations. Most are 35 or older, but if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age.

Your New Look

The positive results of your eyelid surgery-the more alert and youthful look-will last for years.
