How effective is blepharoplasty in treating drooping eyelids?

Blepharoplasty or eyelid reduction is highly effective and is the one lifting procedure which rarely needs to be repeated. There may be non-surgical touch-ups in the future but having another skin excision is less likely.

The skin of the eyelids is excellent at hiding scars, and any scars will be hidden in the fold of the upper eyelid. Making them nearly invisible on most people. The only way the scars would potentially be visible, is when there is a hood of skin to be removed which extends beyond the eyelid, however, again for most people this scar becomes invisible. The scar of the lower eyelid will heal very well, and it is disguised under the eyelashes and in the crow’s feet.

The folds of skin beyond the lower eyelid overlying the cheekbone are often called Festoons and are more difficult to eliminate. There are a few different ways we will work at removing Festoons, either through skin removal, excision, fat or filler, liposuction and steroid injection.
