A blepharoplasty rejuvenates your eyes through the gentle and precise removal of excess eyelid skin and occasionally eyelid fat. Repositioning heavy brow skin may also be necessary to achieve the optimal improvement in upper eyelid surgery. Lower eyelid surgery is typically improved by adding volume to the tear trough and cheeks by facial fat grafting.
