Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
A blepharoplasty is an operation to remove excess skin (dermatochalasis) from the eyelids. Occasionally, you may require removal of some fat from the lids as well. The procedure can be done on the lower and the upper eyelids, separately or at the same time.
Excess skin is common as we age and this can lead to the appearance of hooding of the skin. In addition the ligaments loosen and the fat pads naturally tucked around the eye become more pronounced. In addition some of glands around the eye also enlarge or loosen and need attention as well. Occasionally the problems can sometimes be severe enough to interfere with the field of vision.
