Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that corrects eyelids that are sagging or drooping. Because the skin of the eyelid is thinner than other areas of the face, it tends to show the first signs of aging.
Eyelids that sag or droop can affect your peripheral vision and make daily activities more difficult. A blepharoplasty will remove excess skin and fat and tighten the muscles and tissues of the eyelid. It eliminates the skin that is drooping into the visual field and improves peripheral vision.
You should have realistic expectations before undergoing a blepharoplasty. While the procedure can improve the appearance of your eyelids, it does not dramatically alter your face.
