Blepharoplasty is an operation to remove excess skin and, sometimes fat, from the upper eyelids.
Excess skin is often due to ageing changes, which result in loss of skin elasticity.
However, the eyelid appearance is inherited to some extent, causing some patients to seek surgery at a younger age.
Upper lid blepharoplasty is a very commonly performed cosmetic procedure, achieving a very natural, less ‘tired-looking’ appearance with high patient satisfaction rates. A typical example is shown below.
