Will blepharoplasty change the shape of my eye?
The blepharoplasty procedure, or eye lift, is performed to improve the look of the eyelids. When done on the upper eyelids, the excess skin is removed to give the eyelid a more rested appearance. The lower eyelid surgery is done to remove the “bags” under the eyes. These bags are composed of fat. I now remove some of the fat and actually preserve and “relocate” some of the fat. This procedure also gives the eyes a more rested appearance. These procedures should not change the shape of the eyelid.
