Eyelid surgery is centuries old. The word blepharoplasty broke down means eyelid repair. As with many aspects of plastic surgery, there is a cosmetic component as well as a functional component.
That is we can make it look better and hopefully make it work better. This applies to the upper eyelid for sure. As we age the upper eyelid skin expands and sags pushing the eyelid down.
We may have a sad look which when viewed closely appears to be due to the sagging excess skin of the upper eyelid. The eyelid skin is the thinnest in the body and therefore has the best scar.
An upper lid blepharoplasty requires an incision in the crease of the upper eyelid and then a counter incision above it which then allows the skin between the two incisions to be removed. Deeper dissection will identify fat which when removed can assist in the improved cosmetic appearance of the upper.

LOWER LID BAGS
The lower lid, on the other hand, offers a different type of challenge. Over time, what occurs is Bulging all of the fat protecting the eyeball.
This is the so-called lower lid bags. Lower lid bags can be even a greater telltale sign of aging that excess upper lid skin. Unlike the upper lid, there’s not much makeup or camouflaging that can be done to hide the lower lid fat bags.
Fortunately, there is a procedure that can remove the fat called lower lid blepharoplasty. The lower lid scars are always well hidden and fade with time.
Other procedures either less invasive or noninvasive at all can also be helpful to rejuvenate the upper and lower lids.
Botox, fillers, fat transfer and laser procedures all can be used for the benefit of the patient to improve eyelid anatomy and aesthetic appearance.
