Eyelid Surgery, medically referred to as Blepharoplasty, is a surgical technique done to repair sagging, drooping eyelids by removing excess skin and fat around the eye, and sometimes tightening supporting muscles. For people of Asian heritage, a blepharoplasty can add an upper eyelid crease, without erasing evidence of your natural heritage.
The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, and realistic in their expectations. Most are 35 or older, but if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age. You may also be a candidate for blepharoplasty if your drooping eyelids keep you from completely opening your eyes or if drooping skin pulls down your lower eyelids.
