Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can provide amazing results considering the quickness of the procedure and the associated recovery period. This procedure addresses the problem of excess skin on the upper and lower eyelids. Excess skin can obstruct vision. Excess fat creates puffiness in the upper lids and bags under the eyes and tiny wrinkles in the lower lids.

Although aging is the primary impetus for this surgery, genetics can be a factor as well. Young adults find that this surgery can provide substantial improvement in vision and appearance before the inherited dark circles and baggy eyelids cause problems later in life. This minor procedure can provide major results.
