Restore Youthfulness to Your Eyes
Eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, is performed by Dr. Boling II in our Elkhart, Goshen, Notre Dame and South Bend locations to correct:
- Tired appearance to eyes
- Overhanging skin in the upper or lower eyelids
- Excess upper lid or lower lid skin
- Excess fat in the upper or lower eyelid areas
- Droopy eyelids
- Puffy eyelids
- Bags under the lower eyelids
How Eyelid Surgery is Performed
During eyelid surgery, an incision will be made in the upper or lower eyelid. Excess fat or skin will be removed or repositioned and muscles tightened. The incision is then closed with sutures or other methods.
In an upper eyelid surgery, the incision is well concealed in the upper eyelid crease. Dr. Boling II is highly skilled at keeping the scars as invisible as possible since they are hidden within the natural folds of your eyelids. During a lower eyelid surgery, the incision is made inside the lower eyelid, so no visible scar is seen.
Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
After an eyelid surgery, you will experience a more refreshed and youthful appearance, less puffiness under the eyelids, an enhanced ability to see in the peripheral field of vision and an improved ability to apply makeup (eye shadow and eyeliner) without difficulty.
