Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids.
Our eyes often speak whether we look awake and alert, or tired, angry or unhappy. Blepharoplasty is to treat lower eyelid puffiness, dark circles or drooping upper eyelids issues. Even with a healthy lifestyle, these features do not reduce for some people. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both.
Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can strengthen the area surrounding your eyes.
Not only making you look older but severely weakening skin around your eyes can also reduce your side external vision, particularly the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Such vision problems can also be reduced with blepharoplasty.
