Drooping of the upper eyelid can make a person look tired and may even interfere with their vision. This is why so many of Dr. Mabrie's eyelid surgery patients come to his San Francisco office seeking upper blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery).
Bags and puffiness below the eyes are an all too common problem, making people look tired and worn out even when they feel refreshed and vibrant. For rejuvenation in this area, lower eyelid surgery can remove excess fat below the eye or reposition this fat to fill in hollows and create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Although some people are born with heavy upper eyelids or puffy lower lids, for most of us, dull, droopy eyes are a sign of aging. In addition to making you look "old and tired," facial aging around the eyes can make you appear depressed, angry or sad.
An eyelid lift (or blepharoplasty) in San Francisco removes excess skin and fat around the eyes, giving the eyes greater definition and a refreshed appearance. In severe cases, when the excess skin actually causes hooding of the skin, blepharoplasty may even improve your field of vision.

Before surgery, Dr. Mabrie marks the areas where incisions will be made. To minimize scarring, these marks follow the natural lines and creases of the upper and lower eyelids. Fat, excess skin, and muscle may be removed during the procedure and fine sutures make the incision almost invisible.
