(BLEF-uh-roe-plas-tee) is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may
involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch,
and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather
above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and
bags under your eyes.
making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your
side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your
field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems
and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.
is done in local anesthesia as an OPD procedure. Precise markings are done
according to your eyelid and after that skin, muscle and fat is removed after
that sutures are placed and removed after 7 days.
