What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is the surgery to improve the appearance of eyelids. The goal of blepharoplasty is to give the eyes a more youthful look by removing excess skin, bulging fat and lax muscle from the upper eyelids. If the sagging skin obstructs peripheral vision, blepharoplasty can eliminate the obstruction and expand the visual field.
Excess skin and fat are removed from the upper lid through an incision hidden in the natural eyelid crease. If the lid is droopy, the muscle that raises the upper lid can be tightened.
