Eyelid Enhancement


Tired, aged eyes that appear puffy and sag are one of the first signs of aging. At Athenix, we realize that being rested and healthy isn’t always enough. Refresh the entire eye area with Eyelid Enhancement (Blepharoplasty). This procedure recovers the eye area by removing sagging skin from the upper eyelids, tightening droopy lower eyelids, and reducing puffy bags from underneath the eyes, giving you that youthful sparkle. The operation takes only 45 minutes, however the results are long-lasting and notably improve your desired appearance.

  • Achieve a significantly younger appearance
  • Restore eyelid function
  • Expect natural-looking results

Athenix offers 3 types of Eyelid Enhancements:

Upper Blepharoplasty: Decrease loose skin over the eye. Through this procedure, excess skin and tissue are removed through small incisions, restoring eyelid function.

Lower Blepharoplasty: Through this procedure, there are several different approaches to your surgery that can be performed.

  • Transconjunctival Lower Lid Blepharoplasty: This technique is often chosen when no skin needs to be taken off. An incision is made on the inside of the lower eyelid, so there is no scar or other sign of the surgery.
  • Transcutaneous Lower Lid Blepharoplasty: A subciliary incision, also called a "pinching" technique, is used to remove fat and skin that sticks out from under the eyelid.
  • Tranconjunctival Arcus Marginalis Release: This technique moves the fat inside the lid to keep some volume in the soft tissue. It stops the ridge of the orbital bone from sticking out too much, which makes the eyes look hollow and the face looks older.

Double Eyelid Surgery: This procedure creates double eyelids by forming a crease in the top of the eyelids that helps in improving various issues including droopy eyelids or eye bags, or overall disatisfaction with the shape and function of the eyelids.

If you have more questions and would like to know whether an Eyelid Enhancement is right for you, call us today to set up a consultation. Our staff and medical professionals will help you every step of the way.

As we re-open our facilities our priority remains the safety and well being of our patients and staff. To that end, we have implemented a number of important safety measures at all of our facilities.
