Blepharoplasty "Eye Lid Surgery"
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to dramatically improve the appearance of the eyelids.
Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both. Whether you're wanting to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.
What eyelid surgery can treat
Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, in some cases impairing vision
Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
Bags under the eyes
Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white beneath the iris
Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
Who is a good candidate for eyelid surgery?
In general, you may be a ideal eyelid surgery candidate if:
You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
You have realistic expectations
You are a nonsmoker
Individuals without serious eye conditions
It is important to remember that the eyelids are part of the face. The appearance of a drooping upper lid may potentially be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrow. In some cases stretching out of the upper eyelid muscle may cause a drooping eyelid. This is called eyelid ptosis and requires a different surgical treatment.
