Eyelid surgery

What is Blepharoplasty?

A blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is an operation to remove excess skin and fat from your eyelids and to tighten your skin and soft tissues around your eyes.

As we get older, the skin loses its elasticity and gravity pulls down on the soft tissues of our eyelids, causing them to sag.

Excess skin in an upper eyelid can sometimes hang down low enough to interfere with our vision.

Sometimes a drooping eyebrow and forehead can make our upper eyelid look as if it is sagging.

Skin in a lower eyelid can lose its tone, sag and develop wrinkles, and appear puffy caused by bulging fat pads.
