Blepharoplasty is the medical term for eyelid surgery.

Eyelids have very thin skin and often start to change shape and size over time. A blepharoplasty can repair most kinds of disfigurations. Most people experience a loss of elasticity over time on the upper and lower eyelids.

As an upper eyelid loses its elasticity, it may start to droop down so far that it begins to block the eye making it difficult to see.

So, while many blepharoplasty operations are for aesthetic reasons, there are also necessary, quality of life reasons.

Whether you are fighting aesthetic changes in your face (wrinkles) or you are struggling with the functionality of your eyes because of excessive swelling or drooping skin, eyelid surgery can improve your quality of life.

Not everyone can have an eyelid surgery. A doctor must approve and determine that the patient’s facial structure proves safe to undergo such a procedure.

Recovery time will depend on the type of surgery and the natural elasticity and regenerative ability of your skin. Make an appointment with us today if you are seeking corrective surgery for your eyelids.
