Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is done to improve how the upper and lower eyelids look. It also may be done to remove sagging skin that affects a person's vision.
This surgery is done to remove puffiness on the eyelids or bags under the eyes. It can also be done to fix drooping eyelids or to tighten loose skin.
Sometimes this surgery will take away fine wrinkles under the eyes. But for wrinkles at the corner of the eyes (crow's feet), other treatments may be done. Some treatment examples are Botox, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing.
Often incisions can be made so that the scars don't show. Eyelid surgery is usually done by a plastic surgeon.
