Eyelid lift

Blepharoplasty; Ptosis - eyelid lift

Eyelid lift surgery is done to repair sagging or drooping upper eyelids (ptosis) and remove excess skin from the eyelids. The surgery is called blepharoplasty.

Sagging or drooping eyelids occur with increasing age. Some people are born with droopy eyelids or develop a disease that causes eyelid drooping.

Blepharoplasty - series

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is used to correct puffy bags below the eyes and drooping upper lids that make the patient look older and tired or that interferes with vision. Eyelid surgery will not remove wrinkles around the eyes, lift sagging eyebrows, or eliminate dark circles under the eyes.
