Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure to improve the area around the eyes. With age, our skin loses it’s elasticity, or ability to stay tight, and thus the skin begins to sag. Blepharoplasty can include work done to both the upper and lower eyelids. In the procedure excess skin is removed and fat may be removed, or re-shaped to create a more youthful appearance. Having drooping eyelids due to sagging skin can make people feel like they look older and more tired than they are.
Blepharoplasty may also be done in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift, rhinoplasty, cheek or chin implants or neck lift.
