What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, tissue, and sometimes fat from the eyelids. The procedure can not only improve the upper facial appearance but can also correct vision problems related to low-hanging lids.
Blepharoplasty is typically performed on an outpatient basis and involves making incisions in the natural creases of the eyelids to minimize scarring. Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the surgery but typically takes a few weeks. Blepharoplasty is generally considered to be a safe and effective procedure with a high success rate.
