What to expect
Eyelid surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. There are two types of eyelid surgeries:
An incision is made in the natural fold of the upper eyelids so that it is hidden from sight. After the incision is made, the surgeon will remove excess skin and tissue, tighten the remaining skin and sculpt the fat in order to give your eye a more youthful appearance.
The surgeon will make an incision just below the lower eyelashes, where excess skin is removed. An inner eyelid incision will be made within the lower eyelid to re-position fat and improve puffiness under the eyes.
Once the desired amount of excess skin has been removed and fat has been redistributed and sculpted, the incisions are closed with sutures.
