What is Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty?
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that can rejuvenate the upper eyelids, restoring vision and producing a more youthful appearance. The eyelids begin to droop due to the aging process, which in some patients can even result in the eyelids drooping over the eyes and interfering with vision. In this case, they can also cause an angry or tired-looking appearance.
Blepharoplasty lifts the eyelids and trims excess skin to rejuvenate the appearance. If you are experiencing similar symptoms that are affecting the lower eyelids, you may want to combine this procedure with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty.
