Eyelid Surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the face bringing focus to a youthful looking eye area.
Blepharoplasty can treat the following concerns:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
The appearance of a drooping upper lid may also be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrow. Requiring a browlift surgery. Sometimes stretching out of the upper eyelid muscle, like putting in contacts daily for many years, may cause a drooping eyelid. This is called eyelid ptsosis and requires a different surgical treatment.
