    Eyelid surgery is a regular method of dealing with entropion (inward turning of the eyelid), ectropion (outward turning of the eyelid), ptosis (drooping of the eyelid), and some eyelid tumors. As we mature, the fragile skin around the eyes may appear puffy, saggy, or droopy.  Eyelid skin stretches, the muscles weaken, and the normal deposits of protective fat around the eye settle and become more prominent. This process can make your eyes feel tired and irritated.  The surgical procedure to remove excess eyelid tissues is called blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. The surgery can be performed for either cosmetic or functional reasons.  When blepharoplasty is performed to improve vision rather than for cosmetic purposes only, the cost may be covered by a health insurance plan. Some potential complications associated with eyelid surgery include bleeding and swelling, infection and dry eyes to name a few.

    Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove skin and to add or remove fat from the eyelids. Upper eyelid excess skin can create a heavy looking eyelid and block vision. Only surgery can help restore vision. The term “eyelift” is a misconception because they eyelid is not lifted during surgery. Upper blepharoplasty surgery uses incisions on the skin to allow for removal of skin and fat. A thin stitch is then used to bring the skin together to allow for a creation of an eyelid crease. Lower eyelid surgery may involve skin incisions directly below the lash line or an incision on the inside of the eyelid. Sometimes tightening the eyelid is needed to correct droopiness or sagging. As with any surgery, there are potential risks of having blepharoplasty. Risks may include infection, bleeding, scarring, dry eyes, double vision or loss of vision. Individuals with realistic expectations who are in good health are suitable candidates for eyelid surgery.
