Surgery for Droopy/Baggy Eyelids/Eyelid Lesions
Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
Upper lid blepharoplasty is a technique used to remove the excess baggy eyelid skin from the upper lids. Our surgeons have over 30 years combined experience and practice the most up-to-date techniques including tissue-sparing eyelid lifts to allow for a natural appearing lid. In cases of severe baggy eyelids, your surgery may be considered medically necessary. Stop by today for an evaluation.
Upper Lid Ptosis
Upper lid ptosis (droopy eyelid) occurs when the muscle in the upper lid (the levator) becomes loose or detached from its natural insertion. This procedure involves re-attaching the muscle where it belongs naturally. Our doctors have been performing ptosis repair for several years.
Lower Lid Ectropion
This is a lower lid looseness or bagginess, that interferes with the eyelids ability to touch the eyeball. This can cause significant problems with dry eye, thus interfering with your clarity of vision. If you think you may have lower lid ectropion it is worth an evaluation.
Lower Lid Entropion
Lower Lid Entropion occurs when the lower lid curls under, causing the eyelashes to rub on the eyeball. It is very uncomfortable and can be very dangerous to the integrity of your eye. The scratches on the surface of the eye can eventually lead to loss of vision. Entropion is repaired with a simple lid tightening procedure.
