As we age, a complex series of changes takes place in the tissue around the eye.
Skin becomes thinner and less elastic, fat may protrude or atrophy, and even the bone can resorb, lending less support to the soft tissues. Many of these changes can be improved or corrected surgically.
Blepharoplasty (or eyelid surgery) is intended to tighten the tissues of the upper and/or lower eyelids. It is useful for improving the appearance of aging around the eyes. In the upper lids, the procedure removes excess skin in virtually all cases. Depending on the individual anatomy, fat and muscle may also be addressed. The lower lids may be full and/or there may be skin laxity, both of which would be corrected surgically.
