Eyelid Surgery

One of the more popular cosmetic surgeries is Eyelid surgery which is also known as blepharoplasty.  Eyelid surgery is usually performed to remove excess skin from the upper eyelid and also the fatty pockets which can appear under the patients eyes. The two common cosmetic procedures (upper & lower blepharoplasty) can be performed by your surgeon separately and is often done in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as face lifts to create a more youthful appearance.
Eyelid surgery is now popular in both men and women as it can reduce the look of droopy eyelids and can refresh an tired and haggard appearance but may also be necessary to reduce a visual obstruction.  The benefits of undergoing eyelid surgery is that it rarely has to be repeated as the patient ages.
