Excess skin around the eyelids that creates sagging is a common problem associated with the aging process. Patients visit us seeking help with a puffy or swollen appearance around the eyelids that creates a tired, sad demeanor. An eyelid lift is an effective procedure designed to rejuvenate your appearance.

An eyelid lift, also known as a blepharoplasty, surgically removes excess skin and tissue around the eyes through a hidden incision located within the natural folds of each lid. In some cases, excess fat is redistributed. The techniques and scope of the surgery vary depending on the desires of the patient and the extent of correction required.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer takes pride in bringing the physical changes to his patients’ lives that they desire – without long recovery periods. He achieves this in his eyelid lift by implementing laser techniques.
