Blepharoplasty is the term used for cosmetic eyelid surgery, but eyelid surgery isn’t only a cosmetic procedure. Sometimes it’s a matter of improving a patient’s field of vision by removing excess tissue. Other times, specialized techniques can be used to repair damage to or reconstruct this delicate area. Blepharoplasty is one of the most successful procedures for rejuvenating the area around the eyes and it can enhance a youthful glow of one’s face. The recovery time is generally about one week.
