Eyelid Surgery / Blepharoplasty
Upper or lower eyelid surgery traditionally involves removal of protruding fat that causes dark circles and puffy bags under the eyes. Although this improves appearances it still leaves a sunken-in look and prominent bony rim. Dr. Mendieta instead, lifts the cheeks redraping the fat, restoring the lower eyelid to a smoother, more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, creates open, larger, brighter appearing eyes. By removing excess or loose skin and fatty tissues which produce bags around your upper or lower lids, your eyes can appear larger, less tired, more open, and brighter.
In women, excess loose tissue prevents optimal use of makeup and obscures the normal contours of the eyelid. In both women and men, loose, sagging, bulging tissues make your eyes appear smaller and look tired or stressed.
The goal of eyelid surgery is to produce a significant improvement in eyelid appearance with the utmost safety.
