Blepharoplasty is an operation to modify the contour and configuration of the eyelids.
Surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken.
Unlike upper blepharoplasty, which is considered to be a cosmetic procedure, ptosis repair is mostly functional. Ptosis repair involves tightening or shortening the eyelid muscle so that it can once again lift and open the upper eyelid adequately
