Blepharoplasty (Upper & Lower Eyelid Rejuvenation) is a type of surgery that removes excess skin from the eyelids. With age, eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess skin and fat can gather above and below your eyelids. This can cause sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under the eyes.
What is Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty is a kind of surgery performed on the eyelids, and is usually done for cosmetic reasons. Blepharoplasty removes the excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids to give you a more youthful, energetic appearance. The degree of upper eyelid drooping may be severe enough to obstruct a portion of your visual field. This becomes an issue that is medically necessary to treat. Similar to the upper lids, the lower lids are also subject to the effects of aging. As we age the skin in this area tends to become thinner, connective and soft tissues under the eye descends and bulges into unsightly bags. Fluid may also collect in these areas, worsening the appearance of the under eye bags. This particular procedure can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures, such as a facelift or brow lift.
