Blepharoplasty is a type of procedure that repairs droopy eyelids by removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids.
As people age, the eyelids stretch, and the muscles weaken, resulting in additional fat gathering around the eyes. This can cause sagging eyebrows and droopy upper lids.
Excess upper eyelid skin and fat can create heavy-looking eyes, puffiness and an aged appearance. For those with severe sagging skin around the eyes, vision can be impaired around the side of the eyes (peripheral vision) and the upper field of vision. Upper blepharoplasty is performed to reduce or eliminate these vision problems and enhance the appearance of the eyes, making the patient’s eyes look younger and more alert.
To determine if blepharoplasty is right for you, discuss with Dr. Brandon Miller and explore the benefits, expectations and risks of this procedure.
