Blepharoplasty Surgery

Eyelid surgery to remove excess skin and fat is referred to as "blepharoplasty"

Eyelid surgery to remove or reposition redundant tissues in the upper or lower eyelid is referred to as “blepharoplasty”. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty involves removal of skin, muscle, and/or fat and is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the United States. Functional upper eyelid blepharoplasty is performed to help restore the superior field of vision that is impaired by the redundant upper eyelid tissues. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is nearly always considered cosmetic and emphasizes removal and/or repositioning of the lower eyelid fat (“fat bags”). Blepharoplasty Surgery is different than Ptosis Surgery which is performed to raise or elevate a droopy eyelid.
