This is when excess tissue (skin/muscle/fat) is removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids. The cause of the excess skin is usually age-related change. Symptoms that might be caused include blockage of the vision from overhanging eyelid skin, or large ‘eyebags’. Blepharoplasty surgery is sometimes done to treat or lessen the appearance of eyebags. It is sometimes combined with ptosis surgery and brow lift procedures.
