Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal or alteration of excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. The procedure can be done for both cosmetic and medical reasons.

Cosmetic blepharoplasty is often performed to improve the appearance of the eyes by removing excess skin and fat that causes sagging and puffiness in the upper and lower eyelids. This can give the eyes a more youthful and refreshed appearance.Medical blepharoplasty is performed to improve vision that is obstructed by excess skin or fat on the eyelids. This can be caused by age, genetics, or medical conditions such as ptosis.

The surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia and can take between 1-2 hours. Recovery time varies but typically takes a week or two. Bruising and swelling are normal and typically subside within 2-3 weeks. The stitches are removed within 7 days of the surgery.
