Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty)



If you're considering eyelid surgery
Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a procedure used to remove fat usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.


Surgery can fix the separation of the upper eyelids and puffy bags below your eyes which are traits that can make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, this procedure does not eliminate wrinkles or so called "crow's feet, almost does not eliminate dark circles under the eyes or lift sagging eyebrows. Though it can help increase the fold of the upper eyelid in Asian people's eyes, can not eliminate the evidence of their ethnic or racial. Blepharoplasty can be done alone or at the same time as other facial surgical procedures, perhaps as a facial skin lift or a browlift.
