Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, corrects problems from excess fatty tissue and skin around the eyes, to provide a refreshed, awake, and more youthful appearance. This surgery is often beneficial to all age groups and can usually be done under local anesthesia.
The procedure can include the upper or lower eyelids, depending on where the problem is located. During eyelid surgery, excess fat and skin are removed or repositioned. The resulting scars are typically subtle, and this procedure is very rewarding to most patients.
