Eyelid Surgery Memphis

Eyelid surgery is becoming a more prominent field at the Shea Clinic. The appropriate term for eyelid surgery is called Blepharoplasty. This is a surgery that is known to repair droopy eyelids. As most people know, the older you get the more your skin ages as well. The skin around the eye and eyelids are very noticeable places when skin starts to age. This is a big reason blepharoplasty is becoming a more popular surgery.

However older looking skin is not the only reason blepharoplasty is used. The sagging of the eyelids can also reduce peripheral vision. This mainly affects the outer and upper range of vision. Blepharoplasty is a surgery in which skin, muscle, tissue, or fat is removed from the upper eyelid. This tightens the lid giving one a younger appearance and a better peripheral vision. This is not to be mistaken with an eyelid lift. During this surgery the eyelid is not lifted, again it is the removal of mostly excess skin and fat. Blepharoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient surgery.


Eyelid Surgery treats:

  • Droopy or sagging eyelids
  • Impaired vision from disturbed creases and folds on the eyelid
  • Puffiness or excess fat around the eyelid
  • Under the eye bags
  • Around the eye wrinkles
  • Heavy bottom eyelids revealing the iris of the eye

 If you are questioning whether blepharoplasty is right for you, make an appointment with  Dr. Staffel at Shea Clinic and let our professionals walk you through the best process. You can contact Shea Clinic here or call us at 901-761-9720.
