An eyelift, or blepharoplasty, is an aesthetic procedure that removes sagging and excess skin and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids, and also removes fatty tissue that can cause lid fullness or bags under the eyes.
Blepharoplasty, however, is more than an aesthetic procedure. Significant skin and muscle sagging may cause obstructed vision for some people. In other instances, bags under the eyes can cause the lid to pull away from the eye, causing irritation and dry eye disease.
