Blepharoplasty with Dr. Tantawi
“Your eyes are the window to your soul.” That adage continues to endure because more than any facial feature, the eyes always hold a special beauty and allure, for women. Unfortunately, loose “sagging” or “bulging” skin around the upper and/or lower eyelids, can create a tired or worn appearance. Eyelid surgery can restore the natural contour of the upper and/or lower lids, resulting in a younger, more rested, and alert appearance
What Is a Blepharoplasty Procedure?
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift) is a surgical procedure that can improve an aged, tired, droopy, or swollen appearance to the eyelids. Upper blepharoplasty can address sagging of the upper eyelids while lower blepharoplasty addresses under-eye bags. Surgery may be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.
During the procedure, excess fat and skin are removed and the underlying tissue is tightened, for a more youthful, rested eye appearance.
Why Have a Blepharoplasty:
REMOVE WRINKLES: Tightening the skin of the upper and/or lower eyelids can automatically improve or reduce the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes commonly
BRIGHTEN TIRED EYES: Puffy bags under the eyes and excess skin on the upper eyelids can make one look constantly tired or sad. Blepharoplasty can help patients appear more alert and express their true emotions.
EXPAND VIEW: Sagging upper eyelid skin can make it difficult to see. The upper eyelid lift removes this excess skin to broaden the scope of patients’ vision.

To enhance or freshen the appearance of the eyes, Dr. Tantawi often performs a brow lift procedure.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift:
- Reduces the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead, as well as those that occur on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
- Improves frown lines, the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
- Raises sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids
- Places the eyebrows in an alert and youthful position
