Surgery of the eyelid, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure in which excess tissue, skin, and/or fat are repositioned or removed. Eyelid surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert. Eyelid surgery:
Can remove loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing peripheral vision
Can remove excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
Can correct bags or puffiness under the eyes
Is This a Good Option For You?
A blepharoplasty procedure is usually performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles, and have realistic goals for improvement of the upper and/or lower eyelids and surrounding area. Eyelid surgery may be a good option if:
You are physically healthy
You do not smoke
You do not have a serious eye condition
You have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance
