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:
- Remove loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid.
- Gather fatty deposits above and below the eyelids that make the eyelids appear puffy.
- Eliminate bags under the eyes.
- Remove excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.
Reconstructive Eyelid Surgery
Reconstructive eyelid surgery fixes various eyelid malpositions, such as:
- Dry eye condition.
- Entropion of the eyelid, which occurs when the lower lower eyelid turns outward and does not touch the eye.
- Ptosis, or drooping of the upper eyelid in one or both eyes.
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.
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.
Tearing (lacrimal) surgery is performed to correct excessive tearing that may result from a blockage in the tear drainage system or an eyelid malposition.
