Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, and gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes.
Some patients have enough extra skin and fat in the upper eyelids or enough drooping of the upper eyelids that it blocks a portion of the peripheral vision. This can cause problems keeping the eyelids open when driving a car or when reading. Removing this excess results in a less tired, more open mid face. The procedure can be performed as outpatient surgery in the office, saving about half the cost compared to traditional outpatient surgery centers.
