What is ‘blepharoplasty’?

This is the medical term for ‘eyelid surgery’. This is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures and involves the removal of excess fat, skin and muscle from both the upper and lower eyelids.

The aim is to lift drooping eyelids and to reduce those all too familiar ‘bags under the eyes’. This results in a more youthful looking appearance. It is sometines called eyebag removal surgery.

This procedure can be performed either on its own or in conjunction with other forms of facial surgery such as a rhytidectomy (‘facelift’). It can also be undertaken with non-surgical procedures such as chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing.

Blepharoplasty is the second most popular cosmetic procedure for men.
