Etymology: Gk, blepharon, eyelid + Gk, plassein, to mold
Blepharoplasty is surgery that includes repairing droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, drooping upper lids and bags under your eyes. Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can impair your peripheral or side vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate such impaired vision.
Blepharoplasty is usually done on an outpatient basis if not associated with rhytidectomy. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and sedation or general in case of combined surgeries.
