Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed by Dr. Daniel Greenwald at Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL, to enhance the appearance of a patient’s eyelids. While most often considered for aesthetic reasons, blepharoplasty can also provide functional results, and thus is sometimes medically necessary. That’s because blepharoplasty can improve a patient’s eyesight and comfort by surgically lifting saggy eyelids that obstruct the line of vision. Known as lid ptosis, this condition commonly occurs during the natural aging process as the skin gradually loses its elasticity and begins to droop. What’s more, to compensate for their poor vision, some patients unwittingly tense their brow muscles, which can create permanent facial lines and creases.

In addition to impaired vision, some of the conditions that Dr. Greenwald can address with blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, include:

  • Loose skin that disrupts the natural contour of the upper eyelid
  • Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelid or bags under the eye
  • A drooping lower eyelid (e.g., the white of the eye might be visible below the iris)
  • Wrinkles and crepey skin on the lower eyelid
