You are about to watch Dr. Kelly perform a blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat and is designed to restore a more youthful appearance to your eyes. It will not, however, affect crow’s feet or deep wrinkles. Blepharoplasties may involve the upper lids, the lower lids, or both.
Blepharoplasty incisions are made in the fold or crease of the upper eyelids. With the lower lids, the incision can be made either right at the lash line of the lower eyelids or through the inside of the lid. Through these incision sites, I am able to eliminate skin and fat.
Blepharoplasties maybe also be performed in conjunction with fat grafting. Fat grafting, or fat transfer, is the process of taking small amounts of fat from one part of the body and re-injecting it elsewhere, to restore a plump, youthful look.
