Blepharoplasty or Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure performed on the upper and/or lower eyelids. During the procedure, your surgeon may remove* excess or droopy skin, a portion of fat or a combination of both, depending on the nature of the issue.If the area of concern is in the upper eyelid, the incision is made in the natural crease or fold in the upper lid. If the lower eyelid is the problem spot, the incision is made just below the lashes on the lower lid.

Common Reasons for Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty may be performed for cosmetic reasons, to improve the function of the eyelids, or both. Normal aging and gravity is usually the reason, resulting in effects that include:
- Dark circles or large bags under your eyes that never seem to go away
- Vision problems caused by heavy eyelids
- “Droopy eyelids”which is loose or sagging skin around the eyelids that adds years to your appearance
- Excess tissue or volume around the eyelids that makes you look chronically fatigued
Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
The benefits of a blepharoplasty procedure become evident as soon as the healing process is complete, and sometimes sooner. Whether the issue was cosmetic or functional, you may see benefits such as:
- A more youthful, energetic appearance
- A more relaxed look around your eyes
- Improved central vision
- Improved peripheral vision
- Thrilled with the difference
