Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is surgical process that involves removing access skin, muscle, and fatty tissue. This process is used by patients for cosmetic reasons or to remove skin that may block eyesight.
Although it is commonly used as a cosmetic procedure, eyelid surgery will not reduce facial wrinkles, eliminate crow’s nest, or remove dark circles from underneath the eyes. This surgery will effectively reduce bagginess from beneath the eyelids and remove extra skin.
Eyelid surgery will not stop the aging process, but the results of the procedure are long lasting. The effects of eyelid surgery may last for five to seven years. Some patients have experienced life long benefits.
