What Is

Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, eyelift surgery, ptosis surgery, or double eyelid surgery, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that can be performed for cosmetic, functional, or both reasons. In blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, excess skin and fat in the eyelids are removed and the skin around the eyelid is tightened. Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can be performed on upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or in combination. The type of procedure, technique, required sites, and other such things are discussed and finalized during the consultation, and blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can be customized as per the needs and requirements of the patient. Hence, it effectively eliminates heavy, sagging eyelids, and other such problems effectively.

Types Of Blepharoplasty:

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can be performed as per the concerns and has many types of methods/procedures in it as said earlier. Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons and for upper eyelids, lower eyelids as well as both in combination.

  • Cosmetic Blepharoplasty: Cosmetic blepharoplasty or cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed to enhance the look, features of the eyes when the droopiness of the eyelids, saggy skin on the eyelids, etc. hamper the attractiveness of the eyes. 
  • Functional Blepharoplasty: This is performed when the sagging eyelids are interfering with the vision of the patient. The patient is unable to see properly due to the drooping eyelids then a functional Blepharoplasty is recommended.
  • Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty:  Upper blepharoplasty may also be indicated for functional reasons, whereby the upper eyelid fat, orbicularis hypertrophy or laxity, skin laxity and lash ptosis may affect the patient’s field of vision. Upper eyelid surgery or upper eyelid blepharoplasty may also be indicated to improve one’s appearance as it can effectively eliminate the issues like the skin around the eyes becomes thinner, eyelids begin to sag and fat starts turning into bumps around the eyelid that come along with aging.

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty or lower eyelid surgery eliminates issues such as fat bulges in the lower eyelid, extra sagging skin effectively and helps to improve one’s appearance drastically.
