Eyelid Surgery


Eyelid Surgery in Tijuana (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery is a surgical technique that involves the removal of fatty tissue from the upper or lower eyelids or both. The end result is a more young, “awake” appearance.

The skin surrounding your eyes may lose elasticity and begin to droop as you age, adding to the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, puffiness, and bags under your eyes. Your upper eyelids may also begin to restrict your eyesight. Performing a blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can cure these issues by tightening loose skin, reducing excessive tissue, and eliminating fat deposits around the eyes. The procedure can help you attain a more youthful, happy appearance and address the practical issues connected with drooping eyelids in a brief, low-risk treatment.

About Eyelid Surgery Procedure

Eyelid surgery can treat both the upper and lower eyelids, however the procedures for each eyelid is slightly different.

Upper Eyelid surgery 

A tiny incision in the natural crease of the upper lid is created.   The procedure tightens the underlying tissue and muscles and eliminates extra skin through the incision.  The skin is then pulled taut and stitched together carefully.

Lower eyelid surgery

This type of procedure helps eliminate dark circles and flattens swollen under-eye bags.  An incision is created in the lower lash line and used to remove the extra tissue.  In some cases, the incision may be done on the inner of the eyelid. 

Depending on the complexity of the treatment, blepharoplasty takes one to three hours. It may take longer if combined with another cosmetic procedure.
