Blepharoplasty Surgery Corrects Droopy, Sagging Skin

As we age, the delicate skin around the eyes can appear puffy or saggy. Eyelid skin stretches and droops, muscles weaken, and the normal deposits of protective fat around the eye bulge. The eyelid surgery to remove these excess tissues (skin, muscle, or fat) is called blepharoplasty.

How Can Blepharoplasty Help Your Appearance?

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids for either cosmetic or functional reasons. Often people choose cosmetic blepharoplasty to improve their appearance by making the area around their eyes firmer.

How Can Blepharoplasty Help Your Vision?

There are also medical reasons for why you may need an eyelid lift. When heavy upper eyelid skin drapes across the eyelid margin and blocks vision, it is considered a functional problem rather than cosmetic. Heavy upper eyelids can often cause difficulty with driving, working, or reading. Eyelid surgery can correct this problem and many patients report improved vision and comfort levels. Many insurance providers cover this surgery. Your doctor at Rock Hill Eye Center will evaluate whether you are likely to qualify. Schedule a consultation to learn more about this procedure.
