Blepharoplasty or cosmetic eye surgery is the plastic surgery of eyelids to correct defects, deformities or disfigurement of the eyelids, extra skin on eyelid, and. for modifying the eye region of the face to enhance its aesthetic appearance. Blepharoplasty is the only permanent method to get rid of under eye bags often referred to as ‘eye bag surgery’.
During the procedure
If you have surgery on your upper and lower eyelids, the surgeon generally works on your upper lids first. He/she cuts along the fold of the eyelid, removes some excess skin, muscle and fat, and closes the cut. On the lower lid, the surgeon makes a cut just below the lashes in your eye’s natural crease or inside the lower lid. He/she removes or redistributes excess fat, muscle and sagging skin, and closes the cut.
