Blepharoplasty

Is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle, and fat.
As you age, your muscles weaken and your eyelids stretch. This can cause your eyebrows to droop, your upper eyelids to sag, and bags to develop under your eyes.
You might be interested in blepharoplasty if your droopy or sagging eyelids are blocking your vision. Upper lid blepharoplasty can make your eyes look more alert. Blepharoplasty can also remove the excess tissue from your lower lids to improve your vision. Both procedures can make you look younger and more alert.

How it Works?

If you get surgery on your upper and lower eyelids, the doctor will start by cutting along the fold of your eyelid on your upper lids. They will remove some excess skin, muscle, and fat to make your eyes look better. The tissue is then put back together.
On the lower lid, the surgeon makes a tiny cut just below your eye's natural lashes. He or she removes extra fat, skin, and muscle to make the area appear more youthful. He or she closes the cut after he or she is finished.
If drooping eyelids are making it difficult to do anything, you might need ptosis. Ptosis is a procedure that provides extra support to the eyebrow muscle.

When do I need blepharoplasty

In some cases severe sagging skin around your eyes, your peripheral vision is affected. For example, your upper and outer fields of vision can be severely impaired. Blepharoplasty can limit or eliminate these problems improving your vision and making your eyes look rejuvenated and alert.
