Overview

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is used to correct "puffy bags" below the eyes and drooping upper lids that make the patient look older and tired or that interferes with vision. Eyelid surgery will not remove wrinkles around the eyes, lift sagging eyebrows, or eliminate dark circles under the eyes.
