How is the Surgery Performed?

The procedure begins with Dr. Cole administering a local anesthetic, and the area is cleansed and ready for surgery. A small section of eyelid tissue is removed from the treatment area, then the fibrous connective tissue, which supports the edge of the eyelid, is sutured together.
