FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – EYELID SURGERY

Q: How does a person get rid of the constant “puffiness” under the eyes?
A: A lower blepharoplasty (lower eyelid surgery) can get rid of the pockets of fat that can cause the puffiness.

Q: Is there any way to alleviate the heavy feeling of the eyes that make it difficult to hold the eyes open?
A: Yes, upper eyelid surgery can alleviate the “heaviness” that people feel around their eyes when the excess skin of the eyelid weighs down on them.

Q: Where is the incision for eyelid surgery?
