Over the years, the skin experiences a gradual process of degradation in quality. The skin cells become older and damaged, and this is reflected in the general appearance of the skin. The eyelids are frequently affected by this, making patients appear older. These patients come in for eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty.

Eyelid surgery is a way of recontouring eyelids that are showing signs of the aging process. Typical examples of these signs include sagging loose skin, lid puffiness caused by displaced fat, and fine lines and wrinkles. Alterations to the tissues in the region restore a smooth, youthful look to the eyelids.
