What Is the

Eyelid Lift

Your eyes are one of your most expressive features, helping you communicate without words. But if your eyes appear tired, aged, or even angry, they may be giving others the wrong impression. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) helps our Atlanta Area patients reduce under-eye puffiness, lift drooping lids, and soften wrinkles in a way that looks natural. This results in a more attractive appearance that better reflects how you feel – happy, youthful, and confident.

Eyelid Surgery

The eyelids are one of the first facial features to give away your age. With droopy upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids, sometimes being rested and healthy is not enough give your eyes that youthful sparkle. Our patients come from across the Southeast to have eyelid surgery for pleasing improvements that revive their entire eye area.

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. With an upper lid blepharoplasty, the excess skin and a small strip of orbicularis muscle is removed to define the eyelid crease and the scar is well-hidden and generally imperceptible. Excess bulging fat pads are reduced and, in some cases, a ptosis repair is performed to adjust the drooping upper eyelid. Surgery may be performed asleep under general anesthesia or awake as an office procedure, depending on the specifics of the procedure.

For lower lids, blepharoplasty is performed to removed the excess skin, address the bags under the eyes, and redistribute the bulging fat pads. Incisions can be directly under the eyelashes or hidden on the undersurface of the eyelids.



Blepharoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed. However, an Asian blepharoplasty has added potential for complications and unfavorable results if meticulous attention is not paid to aesthetics and proper surgical techniques. Your personal goals must be given adequate consideration. If you are of Asian descent and are considering eyelid surgery, you can feel confident Dr. Webb has a detailed understanding of the ethnic variations in eyelid anatomy and the surgical skill necessary to maintain your ethnicity and achieve your individual goals.

Many of our patients elect to combine their eyelid procedure with other facial sculpting procedures, such as a brow lift, facelift, dermal fillers and even BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
