What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure used to remove an excess of muscle, skin or fat that is around the eyelid area. Eyelid surgery can be done on either the upper, lower, or both eyelids. Blepharoplasty helps to improve the appearance of bags under the eyes, droopy eyelids, and any other type of vision difficulties that can affect the eye. While this type of surgery can help correct droopy eyelids, it is not designed to reverse wrinkles or droopy brows.

Who Are Good Candidates For Eyelid Surgery?

People at least 35 years old, and physically in good health make good candidates for this procedure. Patients that have medical conditions such as high blood pressure, dry eyes or any cardiovascular disease will most likely have to bypass this surgery. The supporting framework around the eyes will also determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. The ideal candidate who benefits the most from this surgery is an individual who is in good health and has sagging or drooping eyelids.

What Does Eyelid Surgery Involve?

The surgery is performed with a local anesthetic, along with a relaxing sedative. The surgeon will make a small incision along the crease of the upper eyelid. Once the fatty tissue is removed, the surgeon will proceed to the next step. During transconjunctival eyelid surgery, another small incision is made on the inside of the eye’s lower rim. This cut will usually extend out to the corner of the eye. The muscle and fatty tissue are then separated from each other so that the excess fat can be removed.
