Tired-looking eyes caused by heavy eyelids or puffy, saggy under-eye bags are one of the most common complaints of patients contemplating cosmetic surgery.
Blepharoplasty could be performed on the upper or lower eyelid or both, and it could be performed by itself or combined with other procedures, such as brow lift, or ptosis surgery.
The surgery is usually made under local anaesthesia. Excess skin from the upper lid is usually removed. As for the lower lid, the usual procedure is to reposition the prolapsed fat that give the lazy appearance, avoiding skin excision, as the lower eyelid have less skin laxity comparing to the upper lid.
