What is Blepharoplasty?
Our look, in addition to expressing several feelings, is one of the most striking features of our countenance.
With the passing of time and external factors such as excessive sun exposure, the eyelid skin ages and loses its elasticity, becoming flaccid with wrinkles and fat bags.
Besides the aesthetic issue, the drooping eyelids can interfere in the visual field, and blepharoplasty is recommended to correct the flaccidity of the upper and lower eyelids by removing the excess skin and fat bags.
