Eyelid surgery, or “blepharoplasty,” or an “eyelid lift,” is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the appearance of both the upper and lower eyelids.
What is eyelid surgery?
As we age, the eyelids lose their firmness and fullness, and the muscles around the eyes become lax. As a result, in the upper lids, excess skin causes our eyelids to wrinkle and sag, often limiting vision. In the lower lids, excess skin and the drooping of fat and muscle cause changes in the shape of the eyes and can lead to the development of malar bags.
