What is Blepharoplasty Surgery?
It’s natural for your eyelids to get looser as you age. When they stretch over time and the muscles supporting them get weaker, it can affect your self-confidence and obstruct your vision. To address these effects, your doctor may recommend a common surgery called a blepharoplasty. During a blepharoplasty, your surgeon will remove the excess skin, fat, and tissue from the eyelids, tightening the muscles and restoring proper eyelid function.
Here are some things to consider before considering eyelid surgery:
Droopy eyelids don’t always need treatment: Skin that loses elasticity with age is normal. If you’re eyelids aren’t affecting your vision or quality of life, surgery may not be right for you.
Sometimes loose eyelids affect vision: If the upper eyelids are the problem, they can droop enough to block part of your field of vision and require treatment.
Blepharoplasty can be performed for different reasons: Some patients elect to have eyelid surgery for functional reasons, while other cases are purely for the aesthetic benefits.
