Blepharoplasty removes excess skin and muscle from both the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure can improve drooping skin and bagginess, and also can improve vision in older patients who have hooding of their upper eyelids. This can be performed alone or in conjunction with other surgical procedures of the eye, face, or brow. All candidates should be aware that this procedure cannot stop the aging process, but can diminish the look of loose skin and bagginess in the eyelid region.
You might consider blepharoplasty if excess tissue keeps your eyes from opening completely. Removing this tissue can improve vision and make your eyes appear younger and more alert. Specifically, blepharoplasty may be an option if you have:
• Baggy or puffy upper eyelids
• Excess skin on lower eyelids
• Dark circles or bags under eyes
