As you age, your eyelids can start to droop or look heavy. As a result, you may look older or more tired than you feel. This condition can also affect how well you see.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can give your eyes a younger, more refreshed appearance while also improving your range of vision. Health insurers often cover the procedure when it’s needed to correct visual impairment.

Benefits of eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty

During this procedure, your surgeon removes excess skin, muscle and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can:

  • Redefine the eyes
  • Eliminate a hooded or droopy look
  • Diminish puffiness under the eyes
  • Smooth wrinkles around the eyes
