Blepharoplasty describes reshaping the eyelids. It is a procedure that can be carried out on both the upper and lower eyelids; typically to correct ‘hooding’ of the upper eyelids and ‘bagginess’ of the lower eyelids.

In addition to technical competence ,your surgeon needs to have an appreciation of facial balance and proportion to provide the optimum result. He/she should be competent in evaluating your eye preoperatively and  managing any complications or consequences for your eyes afterwards such as ‘dry eye’.
