What is Eyelid Surgery? | Biodermis.com
Eyelid surgery, otherwise known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the eyelids. This surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Blepharoplasty is considered a reconstructive surgery or a cosmetic surgery, as it can restore functionality to the eyes or improve the aesthetic appearance of the eyes. People with deformities or disfigurations of the eyes will benefit from this type of procedure. Likewise, eyelids that have begun to sag or droop due to old age can also be modified with a blepharoplasty. Generally, there is minimal to no scarring during the post-operative recovery process and patients can return home with minimal down time soon after the surgery is completed.
