Eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery, also referred to asĀ blepharoplasty or an eye lift, is a surgery performed to remove bagginess and puffiness from lower eyelids, and droopiness from upper eyelids. It is commonly performed as a cosmetic procedure, but may also be necessary for patients who have obstructed vision due to drooping upper lids.

The doctor will usually make a small incision in the upper eyelid or beneath the lower eyelid, in order to remove excess skin and/or fat from the area
