Blepharoplasty or "eyelid lift" is a group of surgical procedures that improve the form and function of the eyes by modifying the anatomy of the surrounding structures. Blepharoplasty commonly is often done for both the upper and lower eyelids. In blepharoplasty, fat is removed or repositioned, muscle is reduced or tightened, tendons are supported and skin is removed. Although most commonly performed for cosmetic reasons, blepharoplasty can also improve peripheral vision.
