As part of the natural aging process the upper eyelid develops redundant loose skin, the eyes begin to look hollow, and fat can start to bulge out of the orbit making the eyes look “puffy”. The greatest toll is often seen in the lower eyelid. Patients complain of wrinkles, loose skin, puffiness and dark bags.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on either the upper and lower lids, or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.
