Blepharoplasty is the plastic surgery operation for correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids; and for aesthetically modifying the eye region of the face. With the excision and the removal, or the repositioning (or both) of excess tissues, such as skin and adipocyte fat, and the reinforcement of the corresponding muscle and tendontissues, the blepharoplasty procedure resolves functional and cosmetic problems of the periorbita, which is the area from the eyebrow to the upper portion of the cheek. source

As we get older it is common to develop lower eye bags and curtain-like upper eyelids. These features make us look tried and haggard, adding years to our face and can even interfere with the vision. An eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) can dramatically enhance one’s appearance by addressing issues like loose skin, bulging fatty tissues and relaxed eyelid muscles. It makes the eyes appear younger by smoothing and firming the eyelids, reducing the hooded appearance and removing the under-eye pouches.

A Blepharoplasty procedure usually is performed through external surgical incisions made along the natural skin lines (creases) of the upper and the lower eyelids, which creases then hide the surgical scars from view, especially when effected in the skin creases below the eyelashes of the lower eyelid. According to the technique applied by the plastic surgeon, the incisions can be made from the conjunctiva, the interior surface of the lower eyelid. source
