Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes.

Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

3 Types of Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery:

Depending on what you need, there are three different types of cosmetic eye surgery:

  1. Upper Eyelid: If you have sagging skin, excess fat or puffiness on your upper lids.
  2. Lower Eyelid: If you have excess skin or “bags” under your eyes
  3. Double Eyelid: Many people opt for this procedure to look younger, they do both at the same time for the best results.
