Eyelid Surgery in Louisville: Is It for Me?

No other facial feature says more about us than our eyes. Patients frequently complain that their eyes make them look tired or angry or simply too old. Blepharoplasty surgery rejuvenates the eyes by removing excess skin and fat, or “bags”, of the eyelids. This procedure is often coupled with face lift, forehead lift, and laser surgery. Some patients also consider rhinoplasty and/or chin augmentation in Louisville in order to enhance the harmony of their facial contours.

Goals of Surgery

The goal of Blepharoplasty surgery is to remove excess eyelid skin and fat to “open up” the eyes and restore your bright, vibrant and youthful appearance.
