- Patient Info
Surgery to remove excess fat and loose, wrinkled skin from the upper and lower eyelids is known as blepharoplasty. It is a common cosmetic procedure performed by ophthalmologists, who are surgical specialists for the eyes. Blepharoplasty will refresh your face and restore a more youthful appearance. In many patients, the procedure will improve vision by removing excessive skin from the upper eyelids which hang down like heavy hoods and interfere with peripheral vision, or weigh the lids down during reading.
