Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is one of the most popular procedures
performed by Dr. Allcroft. The surgery can help improve a
tired, sad, or angry look that patients with aging eyelids can
sometimes have. Bags under the eyes and droopy eyelids, extra tissue
in the upper eyelids can be remarkably improved and can help you
look healthy, more alert, and youthful.
When an upper eyelid lift is performed, it may be done under
light oral sedation and local anesthesia. Lower eyelid surgery
typically requires being completely asleep with deep IV sedation.

For the upper eyelid blepharoplasty, the incision is hidden in
the skin crease of the upper eyelid. Extra skin, muscle, and sometimes
extra fat is removed depending on the individual.
For the lower lids, the puffy bags are typically caused by protruding
fat. This fat may be removed or repositioned to fill in hollows
some people have under the eyes. Extra skin can be removed with
a small surgical incision or tightened with a chemical peel at
the time of eyelid surgery.
Dr. Allcroft is very experienced with a wide variety of eyelid
procedures. This knowledge base is important when artfully and
safely performing blepharoplasty.
