FAQ eyelid surgery

Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty)

One of the first things often noticed about a person is their eyes. During the aging process, wrinkles, lines, and puffiness contribute to a tired or aged appearance. Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure to remove skin, usually along with excess fat and muscle, from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can correct drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags and excess wrinkles below the eyes - features that make you look older and more tired than you feel. The result is a more youthful appearance and a refreshed look.

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may be performed on the upper eyelids only, the lower eyelids only, or all four eyelids. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may be performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as brow lift (forehead lift), facelift (rhytidectomy) or rhinoplasty (nose surgery).

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is not effective at improving skin texture, pigmentation problems and brown age spots, fine lines, or dark circles under the eyes. To improve these conditions and the appearance of the eyelids without surgery, our Medical Spa carries several high quality medical grade topical eyelid enhancing/tightening serums and creams from SkinMedica, SkinCeuticals, and La Roche-Posay.

We also offer a variety of non-surgical skin rejuvenation techniques for enhancing facial aesthetics, including medical microdermabrasion, chemical peels, injectable wrinkle fillers, and cosmetic laser procedures. Botox injections are an effective treatment for the deeper creases/wrinkles of the temples (crow's feet) and between the eyebrows (frown lines) caused by muscle activity. Dr. Mayfield personally performs all of our Medical Spa treatments to ensure that only the highest quality of medical care and safety is achieved at all times.
