Eyelid Surgery and the Benefits

Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and to add or remove fat from the eyelids to improve the appearance of the eyelids, and also to treat medical conditions that can harm or obstruct a patient’s vision. Eyelid surgery can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelid, or both.

People have eyelid surgery for a variety of reasons, including the following:

Cosmetic or Esthetic Eyelid Surgery

Also known as blepharoplasty, cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed to:

Reconstructive Eyelid Surgery

Reconstructive eyelid surgery fixes various eyelid malpositions, such as:

Inflammation

Grave’s Disease (also known as hyperthyroidism), an autoimmune disorder of the thyroid gland that can cause the soft tissue around the eyes to swell and become inflamed, may be treated with eyelid surgery in severe cases.

Infection

Orbital surgery is performed to treat infection, inflammation, benign masses, and cancer occurring in the orbit (boney cavity in the skull that houses the eye). Facial trauma can also injure the bones of the orbit, which often requires surgery.

Excessive Tearing

Tearing (lacrimal) surgery is performed to correct excessive tearing that may result from a blockage in the tear drainage system or an eyelid malposition.
