Eyelid Surgery

At Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield, we perform eyelid lift surgery (blepharoplasty) to improve the appearance of sagging, puffy eyelids. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Eyelid surgery addresses excess skin and sometimes excess fat.

Dr. Sofer is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has helped numerous women and men achieve more youthful-looking eyes with eyelid surgery. Request your consultation online or call (203) 336-9862 to schedule your appointment.

Dr. Sofer’s Approach

During your consultation, Dr. Sofer evaluates the skin over your eyelid to determine how loose it is. Depending on the specific concerns you have, Dr. Sofer customizes a surgical plan tailored to your specific needs. Excess fat is often associated with sagging or bulging eyelids, and it used to be standard to simply remove the fat. Facial rejuvenation specialists, such as Dr. Sofer, now often reposition the fat instead of removing it for the best results.

Dr. Sofer offers more details about the approach during the consultation. Depending on your personal goals, he may recommend combining eyelid surgery with a facelift or brow lift for the results you want.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

Upper or lower eyelid surgery (or both) creates a more youthful, rested appearance, especially when compared to procedures such as a brow lift or facelift. During eyelid surgery, Dr. Sofer may do one or more of the following for the desired result:

  • Tighten loose or sagging skin that causes folds and interferes with the natural contour of the upper eyelid
  • Correct obstructions to the field of vision
  • Minimize excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
  • Reduce excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Reduce bags under the eyes
  • Lift drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
