Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. It can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.
In the realm of Aesthetic Oculoplasty, blepharoplasty is an integral procedure. It addresses various aesthetic concerns like droopy or baggy upper eyelids, excess skin of the upper eyelids that interferes with peripheral vision, excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness, bags under the eyes, droopiness of lower eyelids, and excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.
