What is a Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a surgery that is performed to correct excess skin and the famous “bags” of fat on the upper and lower eyelids, which can cause discomfort such as reduced visual field and an appearance of fatigue and aging. The removal of redundant skin and the repositioning of the fat pockets of the eyelids provide a fresher and more youthful look.

Blepharoplasty may be upper and / or lower, depending on the objectives and particular needs of the patient. The approaches used to perform this procedure result in practically imperceptible scars with a high degree of aesthetic satisfaction.
