Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that effectively removes that excess lid and under-eye tissue to contour the skin around the eyes. The overall goal is not to alter the appearance of your face, but to rejuvenate it and restore a more youthful appearance. With the expertise of our resident surgeon, Dr. Delport, you’ll receive professional care from consultation to after-care checkups.
Dr. Delport is the only fellowship trained Oculoplastic Surgeon in the Springfield area. He will conduct a consultation to evaluate your eye shape and the amount of drooping you’re currently experiencing. Once you’ve discussed your wants and needs for the surgery, a customized plan will be set in place and you’ll be on the road to fuller, youthful eyes. Taking anywhere from one to two hours, Blepharoplasty involves a small incision on the eyelid to remove fat deposits. This small procedure can assist in firming the lower lids, erasing bags under the eyes, and restoring natural lineation to the upper eyelid.
Whether you’re experiencing heavy bags under your eyes, excess skin blocking your peripheral vision (ptosis), or drooping upper eyelids, Blepharoplasty can leave you with brighter looking eyes and improved vision.
