Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Bags)

Blepharoplasty is a surgical operation for the correction of eyelid bags or sagging upper and lower eyelids. It is designed to remove the excess fatty tissue, muscle and loose skin and to create a more youthful, wide-eyed look. The upper eyelid lift is performed in cases where the patient requires to lose the excess tissue above the eye that has developed over the years, or merely to lift the eyelid to give the eye a more attractive shape. This problem can also be treated sometimes by elevation of the eyebrows. The lower eye operation is used in cases of eye-bag removal. Vision is not affected by this operation, as it is only the tissues that surround the eyes that are involved.
