Blephoroplasty ( Eyelid Surgery)

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is the plastic surgical correction of defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids that may cause functional and/or cosmetic problems in the eye region of the face. Eye Lid Surgery can remove or reposition excess tissues and reinforce the corresponding muscle and tendons, resolving these functional and cosmetic problems in the area from the eyebrow to the upper portion of the cheek.
Eyelid surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.

Treatable conditions:Upper eyelid surgery can remove excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids.
Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision, can be treated by eyelid surgery.
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.
Bags under the eyes and droopiness can be corrected by blepharoplasty.
