What is Eyelid Surgery?
Dr. Corrado, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, performs eyelid surgery in Philadelphia to improve the appearance of either the upper or lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can also be performed for patients whose vision is impaired due to sagging, excess skin of the upper eyelids.
As we age the upper eyelid skin relaxes, loses its elasticity and tightness, and subsequently sags causing “hooding” or drooping of the upper eyelid. The fat surrounding the eye also bulges from its normal position causing puffiness of the upper eyelid.
Excess upper eyelid skin may also interfere with vision. The lower eyelid also falls victim to the effects of aging. Excess skin in the lower eyelid causes a wrinkled and sagging appearance. Fat bulges result in the classic “baggy-eyed” look. All of this can be improved with an expert Blepharoplasty in Philadelphia with Dr. Corrado.
