What Is Blepharoplasty?

The eyes are often the first feature noticed on our face, and they are also one of the first areas that truly reflect our age. They say “the eyes are the window to the soul” but what if your eyes are revealing the wrong message? We blink thousands of times a day. As we get older, the skin and muscles surrounding our eyelids begin to loosen and sag. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty can effectively restore a youthful look to your eyes and improve the overall attractiveness of your face. If you are bothered by eyes that appear to be aging, it’s time to explore the options of cosmetic surgery with Dr. Steven Pearlman.

Combining Procedures

Blepharoplasty is often combined with other facial cosmetic procedures. Blepharoplasty treats “tired eyes,” while a brow lift is more for droopy eyebrows or an “angry” look. We also combine blepharoplasty with facial peels or laser and facelift surgery.
