The Benefits of an Eyelid Lift
Aging won’t just drastically affect the delicate, thin skin around our eyelids; it can also cause the loss of muscle tone and a shifting of fat pads. The shifting fat pads are especially responsible for the puffy eyelids we associate with tiredness and exhaustion, and they also lead to the dark circles under the eyes that create an even more tired, sickly appearance.
The end results are sagging, droopy eyelids and puffy, baggy lower eyelids that can make someone look constantly tired or upset. At times, drooping eyelids can even obstruct vision. Thankfully, blepharoplasty can help patients with sagging eyelids restore a younger, more refreshed look.
The Benefits of an Eyelid Lift
Blepharoplasty can restore a youthful, vibrant look by reversing the effects of sagging eyelids. After treatment, our patients can look forward to smoother, tighter upper eyelids, the removal of dark circles under the eyes, a smoother, more alluring contour for the area under eyes (the lower orbital rim), and minimal scarring thanks to an appropriate incision closure.
Of course, not all eyelid lift procedures are made the same. Older techniques tended to get overzealous with fat and skin removal, leading to gaunt eyes and overly-round corners. These drastic changes led to patients looking entirely different than they used to and with older-looking, hollowed eyes. The delicate, complex anatomy of the eyelids also suffered from older unrefined techniques, and many patients began to experience uncomfortable complications as time went on.
As an experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr.Mohammadimofrad knows the right techniques for creating natural results, preserving the structure and function of the eyelids, and can last for a long time. More importantly, he knows how to personalize each blepharoplasty so that they’re right for the patient’s unique facial anatomy and look

This is an effective procedure for targeting puffy lower eyelids. Dr. Mohammadimofrad performs both transconjunctival and transcutaneous lower eyelid surgery. With the transconjunctival approach, Dr.Mohammadimofrad creates an incision along the lash line then removes excess skin and tightens the muscles. With a transcutaneous surgery, Dr.Mohammadimofrad makes an incision inside the eyelid so that any scarring will be completely hidden. He’ll then access the fat pads, tighten the muscles, and remove excess skin.
Previous methods of under eye surgery reduced the fat stores in the lower lids so much that they exacerbated the hollow, gaunt look patients wished to correct/ Dr.Mohammadimofrad utilizes a different technique where he re-positions fat to areas that need it, smoothing under eye skin and reducing under-eye circles.
