Drooping eyelids can be caused by stretching and increased laxity of the upper eyelid skin that is commonly seen in aging. Excess skin and puffiness (fat) in the upper or lower eyelids can create a tired or sad look for the person suffering from this condition. In severe cases, the drooping of the upper eyelids can cause vision loss by constricting the field of vision.
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that can correct these conditions resulting in a more rested and youthful appearance. In certain cases, blepharoplasty can even improve peripheral vision. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with little to no discomfort following the procedure. Scarring is minimal and is easily concealed in the upper eyelid’s natural crease.
