Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can rejuvenate puffy, sagging, or tired-looking eyes by tightening and removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient's field of vision. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under attended local or general anesthesia. The incisions are made where the natural crease should be for the upper lids, and below the lash line or inner aspect of the lid for the lower lids. Excess fat and skin are removed, and the soft tissues may be tightened.Recovery is quick with return to work in ten days to two weeks.
