Eyelids - Cosmetic Blepharoplasty The most common reason someone chooses to have eyelid surgery is vision impairment. As we age, the skin and often the muscles develop laxity which creates a heaviness of the lids causing a reduction in vision. However, more and more people are deciding to address heavy eyelids earlier in life. It becomes an issue of looking refreshed. The upper and/or lower eyelids are lifted and loose, or excess, skin and fatty tissue are removed from the eyelids. There is minimal bruising and swelling after eyelids surgery and down time is only a few days.
A brow lift is a plastic surgery procedure which will raise your eyebrows to a higher and more aesthetic position. Often, a brow lift is done in conjunction with eye lid surgery to improve vision.
