Eyelid surgeryEyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is often performed to reduce signs of aging while also improving vision for some patients. There are several reasons why you may need or want to get eyelid surgery. With more information, you can determine if this procedure is right for you. 

Types of Eyelid Surgery

There are two types of eyelid surgery that are performed. The first type is called upper eyelid surgery. This surgery helps improve the appearance of the skin surrounding the eyes. In addition, it can lift sagging skin off of the eye and improve vision in patients who had their vision obscured by dropping eyelids.

The second type of eyelid surgery is called lower eyelid surgery. This surgery is used to remove excess skin from the eyelids to reduce signs of aging. In addition, lower eyelid surgery can be used to correct malformations of the eyelids.

Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery is an exceptional option for addressing various areas of concern around the eyes. There are various factors that can help determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure. In general, you may be a good candidate for an upper or lower eyelid surgery if:

  • You have dark circles, bags, or puffiness under your eyes
  • Your eyelids have drooping or sagging skin that affects your vision
  • You have noticeable signs of aging around your eyes
