Blepharoplasty is another kind of plastic surgery. It is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgeries on the head and neck of a patient. Blepharoplasty is a relatively simple and easy procedure. Blepharoplasty is easier for upper eyelids for the reason that the upper eyelids creases naturally and thus hides the incision lines naturally. The long term effects of surgery are minimal. In Blepharoplasty it actually involves the removal of fat and excess muscle and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. This surgery can lead to a correction of drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags below. This procedure does not involve any other type of wrinkle or crow’s feet. This surgery helps you reduce the ageing look of your face and also the tiredness. Blepharoplasty can help you enhance your looks and boost your confidence but does not result in a complete change of your looks. Blepharoplasty is recommended for people who have droopy, puffy or baggy eyelids. If it’s inherited and runs in your family then it is always advisable to get that done at an earlier age.
