Eyelid Surgery — Norfolk Facial Procedure

If you’re experiencing drooping eyelids due to excess skin and would like to do something about it, the trained professionals at Norfolk Plastic Surgery are uniquely qualified to offer up a surgical rejuvenation procedure known as a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.

Eyelid surgery is designed to reduce the excess skin and fat on the eyelids. In some cases, this extra skin can even interfere with a person’s vision. This outpatient procedure involves incisions along the crease of the eyelid. Typically, these incisions are barely visible and fade over time. Incisions can also be made inside the eyelid, which is more discrete. Eyelid surgery can be done on either the upper or lower eyelid.
