Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
The term blepharoplasty, or eyelid tuck, is a procedure aimed at rejuvenation of the eyes. The procedure can be applied to both the upper and lower eyelids. With aging the eyelids develop loose or sagging skin that can be excessive enough to impair vision. Also, fatty deposits are seen as puffy eyelids or bags under the eyes. Many patients will also complain of general feeling of heaviness to the eyelids.
Other cosmetic procedures may be performed with a eyelid surgery, like brow lift, facelift, or necklift.
