Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty) removes fat, and sometimes excess skin and muscle, from the upper and the lower eyelids. An eye lift can correct droopy upper lids as well as puffy bags below the eyes, which can make you look older or more tired than you feel. Blepharoplasty can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other facial procedures like a face lift or brow lift.
Dr. Ghaderi has helped numerous eyelid surgery patients rejuvenate their appearance. As a dedicated cosmetic surgery specialist, he understands that drooping eyelids and unsightly bags under the eyes can have an impact on one’s self-confidence. Dr. Ghaderi has compiled a photo gallery of past procedures to give patients a better understanding of how an eye lid surgery can help them.

Blepharoplasty is a great option for many of our patients. Eyelid surgery is performed on men and women of all ages who want to improve their appearance and self-image. The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, but have droopy, baggy, or puffy eyelids.
How Safe is Eyelid Surgery?
Each year, thousands of people have eye lift surgery without major complications. However, it is important for you to be informed of the risks as well as the benefits. Dr. Ghaderi will describe the procedure in detail when you visit him for a consultation.
