Lower Eyelid Lift
Men and women start to notice a “heaviness” or sagging appearance to their upper eyelids and a puffiness, or swelling, of the lower eyelid area. This contributes to making you look tired and old. An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, restores your rested, youthful appearance by removing the sagging skin on your upper eyelids and the puffiness under the eyes.
