Eyelid surgery is designed to the incision scars are concealed within the natural folds of the eyelid area. Upper eyelid surgery is done through the natural crease on the eyelid, where fat deposit and excess skin can be removed, and muscles tightened.
The lower eyelid surgery is done through an incision just below the eyelash line, where fat can be repositioned or removed, and excess skin can be tightened or removed.
An alternate technique uses an incision on the inside of the lower eyelid, but using this procedure no skin can be removed.
Incisions are closed with sutures, surgical tape or skin adhesives.
