What is a blepharoplasty?


The eyelid is composed of the upper eyelid and the lower eyelid. Any of the four lids can be corrected. A blepharoplasty procedure removes fat pockets and excess skin as needed. There are two fat pockets in the upper lid and three fat pockets in the lower lid. Some patients get a blepharoplasty to lessen bags under their eyes or puffy upper lids. The procedure is also used to help peripheral vision when the upper lids droop too low and cover the eye, in turn blocking vision. Both upper and lower blepharoplasty can be done together, either under general anesthesia or local, as an outpatient procedure. Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is considered surgical eye rejuvenation.
