What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid reduction, eye lift or eye bag removal), is eyelid surgery designed to rejuvenate the eye and eyelid area.

Eyelid surgery can relate to both the upper and the lower eyelids, but the common aim is to counteract the effects of ageing on the skin, muscle and fat around the eyes.

Eyelid surgery is most common among slightly older patients (50 years old or more) but can be necessary for younger patients, either to change existing genetic features (e.g. droopy eyelids, sunken eyes, lumps on eyelid) or to remove bulging pockets of fat (eyebags) that can build at a young age.

Eyelid surgery can also be performed in conjunction with other surgical procedures of the face, brow or nose. The most common supplementary procedure would be fat grafting for the ageing face and is now included in most combination cases to achieve youthful vitality.
