Eyes are the most important elements of facial beauty. People can get many impressions just looking at our eyes. Actually eyeball is only a sphere and does not cause any impression itself. All the impressions created by eyes are the results of the movement and shape of the eyelids, muscles around the eyes and brows. With age upper eyelid skin droops over the eyelash, lower eyelid skin moves down showing the white area in the eye and fat bags became visible between the upper eyelid and nose and in the lower eyelid.
Aesthetic operations performed on the eyelids are generally called as “blepharoplasty“. Blepharoplasty is technically different in the upper and lower eyelids but mainly includes removal of excess eyelid skin and removal of fat pads behind the eyelids if necessary. Blepharoplasty can be done under local anesthesia.
