Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as an eyelift, involves the removal of excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids. Over time, the delicate skin around our eyes stretches, as the muscles around them simultaneously weaken with age. As this occurs, skin can sag and droop, causing our eyes to have a “heavy” or “tired” look. This sagging is not only cosmetic but can also cause issues with peripheral vision in some patients. Eyelifts work to remove excess skin, fat build-up, and bags that make the eyes look less alert or awake.
