Laser Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) at The Langdon Center in Guilford
Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is a surgical technique used to improve the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty removes excess tissue from drooping eyelids and reduces bags and puffiness under the eyes. In laser blepharoplasty, the CO2 laser is used as a surgical instrument in place of the traditional scalpel blade.
Benefits of Laser Blepharoplasty include:
- Vibrant, youthful eyes.
- Improved visual field (if upper lid sagging was impairing vision)
- A more alert and energetic appearance.
