Eyelid surgery (also called blepheroplasty) is a procedure to remove fat--usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes - features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, it cannot remove crow's feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows.
Blepheroplasty can be done alone, or in combination with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift, chin liposuction or brow lift.
Are you a good candidate for eyelid Surgery?
The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, emotionally stable, and have realistic expectations. Most are 35 or older, but if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age.
A few medical conditions make blepheroplasty more risky such as diabetes, thyroid problems, dry eyes, hypertension or cardiac disease. A detached retina or glaucoma is also a reason for concern.
