Eyelid Surgery Monterey

eyelid-surgeryEyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical facial procedure designed to remove excess fat along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. These changes help to rejuvenate the appearance of the eye and give them a more vibrant and youthful appearance.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Morwood has been performed numerous eyelid surgeries and focuses on providing our patients with personalized care and beautiful results.


Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below the eyes, the most common aesthetic flaws with the eyelids that make you look older and more tired than you actually are. In some cases, sagging upper eyelids may even interfere with your vision.

It is important to note that eyelids surgery won’t remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under the eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. However, eyelid surgery can be combined with other procedures and treatments that address those issues.

While it can add an upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes, it will not erase evidence of your ethnic or racial heritage. Blepharoplasty can be done alone, or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or browlift for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
