Eye Care from Vision and Cosmetic Experts

Your eyelids and the skin surrounding your eyes play an important role in protecting your vision and eye health. This area of your face also communicates a lot to others about you and how you are feeling. For example, under-eye bags or sagging eyelids may make you look tired.

What Is Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?

Blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery designed to remove excess skin, fat or muscle from the eyelids.

Commonly performed to reduce signs of aging, blepharoplasty can give the eyes a more vibrant look. In some cases, however, this type of eyelid surgery is used to improve vision when sagging eyelids obstruct the field of view.

Blepharoplasty is usually done on an outpatient basis, meaning you don’t need to stay in the hospital overnight. Eyelid surgery recovery time can vary, but most people return to regular activities within a week or two after the procedure.
