A blepharoplasty typically consists of reducing the signs of aging around the eyelids and refreshening the look for a more relaxed appearance. This is usually done by removing excess skin from the upper eyelids.


A blepharoplasty refers to the surgery of the eyelids in order to fix specific issues, whether they are hereditary or due to aging.


The procedure involves the upper lids, the lower lids or all four lids at the same time.


A blepharoplasty can be performed on its own or it can be combined with another kind of facial surgery (e.g. lifting).


The most common causes for a blepharoplasty are the following:


  • Heavy and drooping upper eyelids, with excess skin forming a more or less marked fold,
  • Lower eyelids drooping and wilted with small horizontal wrinkles due to skin distension,
  • Excess fat, responsible for presence of eyelids bags under eyes or puffy upper eyelids.


The intervention aims to correct these problems on the long term, by surgically removing excess skin and muscle as well as fatty protrusions, while naturally preserving the essential functions of the eyelids.
