What Is Blepharoplasty?Blepharoplasty—also known as eyelid surgery—is a surgical procedure that corrects drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes. This is accomplished by removing excess skin, muscle, and fat in the area. This procedure isn’t just cosmetic; some patients find that blepharoplasty restores vision that has been blocked or reduced by hanging eyelid skin. Blepharoplasty doesn’t change the size or expression of your eyes, but it can help you to look younger, more rested, and rejuvenated. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, do you really want them covered with excess skin?
