Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure that addresses the aged appearance of the eyelids. As part of aging, we lose elasticity of the skin. This combined with the effect of gravity can cause skin droop and bags under the eyes.
Around the upper eyelids it is characterised by excess drooping skin (hooded look) and in some it is so excessive, that starts to interfere with their vision.
Around the lower eyelids it causes wrinkles and puffy bags that are responsible for the sleepy, tired and aged look.
