Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert. It reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons but is also an effective way to improve sight in people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision.
