So, if the eyes are the doorways to our soul then we want to look rested and fresh-faced!

Upper eyelid surgery focuses on removing excess skin to upper eyes. The scar is placed in the crease of the upper eyelid. Lower eyelid surgery involves removing excess skin and fat to the lower eyelid to help address “bags” under the eyes. The scars for lower eyelid surgery are hidden at the base of the eyelid where your eyeliner is placed.
