When to Consider Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are the windows to our souls — and when the surrounding skin and tissue becomes puffy, wrinkled, or droopy, it can send a false impression that your energy and vibrancy have faded. The best candidates for eyelid surgery have excess skin and fat that can easily be removed, with good skin elasticity.
With the upper eyelid, there is also a functional component that can be of concern. Severe sagging of the skin can begin to impede your vision — and if this is the case for you, there is a chance that insurance will cover some or all of your surgery costs.

Your Blepharoplasty Procedure
Dr. Tabbal can perform both upper and lower blepharoplasty together, or he can perform either portion in isolation. In any case, the incisions will be well hidden along the existing folds and creases of the eyelids.
For some patients, Dr. Tabbal may recommend combining eyelid surgery with a brow lift or a facelift, depending on the degree of facial rejuvenation you want and what he determines to be the overall cause of your signs of aging.
