Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a popular cosmetic surgery that removes excess skin, muscle, and fat from droopy upper and lower eyelids. Factors such as genetics, age, and lifestyle can combine to make your eyes appear tired and old. With eyelid surgery, an alert, youthful appearance can be restored, making you look and feel years younger. As an added benefit, eyelid surgery can improve your eyesight by removing excess tissue and skin that may obscure your vision.
At our surgical facility, facial plastic surgeon in Northern Colorado Dr. Gonyon takes time to carefully examine the cause of your eyelid sagging. Based on your unique needs, Dr. Gonyon will make incisions in the crease of either your upper or lower eyelid, or in a combination of both. Through these incisions, fat and excess skin will be removed. The incisions are well-hidden in the natural creases of your eyelid, and scars should fade within one year.
This is a common procedure that can be done under local anesthesia or under general anesthesia when combined with other procedures at our private AAAASF-accredited surgical facility conveniently located at the intersection of I-25 and US 34.
