Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery

Serving Salt Lake City, Utah and surrounding areas

Eyelid surgery – also called blepharoplasty – is used to correct droopy, heavy eyelids, or upper and lower eyelids that have excess, fatty tissue in them. The three most common areas of blepharoplasty eyelid surgery are:

Upper eyelid lift
This is any sort of surgery involving droopy, heavy upper eyelids. It can also correct puffy eyelids resulting from excess fatty tissue. The most common causes of this type of eyelid are age and genetics.

Lower eyelid lift
This eyelid surgery procedure corrects droopy or puffy lower eyelids. The procedure concentrates on the removal of fatty tissue. Ideal candidates have eyes that appear swollen and tired.

Lower eyelid suspension
This eyelid surgery procedure is done on lower eyelids that produce excessive weeping, inflammation, irritation, redness, and blurred vision.

The surgical techniques for all of these procedures are determined at the time of the consultation. They involve a minor incision made in either the upper or lower eyelid crease, or inside the lower eyelid itself. Then fatty tissue is removed, in most cases, along with the tightening of skin. The incision is closed, and the end result is eyes that appear more alert, alive and less irritated.

The recovery process takes a few weeks. After about a week or two, you’ll be able to read and watch TV, and resume other normal activities. During the recovery process, you may need to clean your eyes with a special solution.

There is very minimal scarring, because of the locations of the incisions.
