Eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can improve the appearance of the area around your eyes. It’s a procedure that reduces bagginess from your lower eyelids and removes excess skin from your upper eyelids. As skin ages, it gradually loses its elasticity. A lack of elasticity, combined with the relentless pull of gravity, causes excessive skin to collect in your upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be performed on your upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both.

Blepharoplasty often means removing excess skin, muscle and underlying fatty tissue. But sometimes providers can reposition tissues rather than removing them. While it’s primarily a cosmetic procedure, blepharoplasty can also improve the field of vision in people whose sagging upper eyelids obstruct their visual field.


Blepharoplasty with fat removal doesn’t eliminate dark circles under your eyes or remove crow’s feet or other facial wrinkles. Other surgical and nonsurgical procedures that reposition fat, fill the hollows under the eyes or lift your cheeks can improve dark circles. Providers can perform blepharoplasty at the same time as other facial surgery procedures, such as laser resurfacing or brow lifts.
