Facial plastic surgery has gained popularity in recent years. And one of them is blepharoplasty. Eyelid blepharoplasty or cosmetic eyelid surgery is the third most preferred cosmetic surgery in America. It can give you an amazing effect on the face and boost your confidence.

It is a procedure that removes the excess skin, muscles, and fat from the eyelids to make you look younger. Although it is most commonly used for aesthetic reasons, it can also be used to treat some vision issues as well. 

The skin naturally loses its elasticity as we age and looks saggy.  So cosmetic eyelid surgery is used to fix this sagginess of the skin. Following are the things that cosmetic eyelid surgery can fix:

  • Bagginess in the lower eyelids that results in wrinkles and bulges
  • Extra skin and fat from the eyelid
  • Fatty deposits that cause puffiness
  • Drooping lower eyelids

Further in this blog, we have listed three things that you need to know before getting cosmetic eyelid surgery.
