One of the most commonly performed procedures for facial rejuvenation is the upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty (removal of excess skin from the upper and lower eyelid) .
During this procedure the tired and saggy appearance of the upper eyelid as well as the thin and puffy bags of the lower eyelid are restored into a more awake and youthful appearance.
This procedure can be performed safely under general or local anesthesia. Recovery to normal activities can be expected within 3 days with return to more strenuous activity within 2 weeks. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with a facelift or browlift.
