What is blepharoplasty? Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that is performed by a doctor to: • Address puffy bags underneath the eyes • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles • Address sagging upper eyelids that impair vision • Address excess eyelid skin that impacts the appearance of the eyes This procedure is typically a cosmetic procedure, though some patients may require it due to severe drooping that blocks their field of vision and makes it difficult to see properly. This includes disturbance of one’s peripheral vision. What causes sagging eyelids? There are a few different reasons why a patient might be dealing with sagging eyelids.
