Upper eyelid procedure (BLEFAROPLASTY)

Upper eyelid procedure is done to fix the sagginess or the bags on the upper eyelid that form due to age or genetics. The bags and sagginess do not only give the person an old person’s look but it also affects their ability to see. This is why eyelid surgery is considered not only an esthetic rocedure but also a functional one. Usually the procedure is done under local anethesia and it lasts around 1 hour. After the operation the patient is kept under observation or a while and then they can go home.
