    Question:

    What eye conditions are treated with blepharoplasty?


    Answer:

    Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure where the upper or lower eyelid skin, and possibly some fat, is diminished. This may be performed cosmetically for those wishing an alteration of their natural anatomy or functionally for age-related changes. On occasion an upper lid blepharoplasty may be performed to correct upper eyelid hooding leading to a decreased superior visual field. Consultation with an ophthalmologist/oculoplastic surgeon is advised for patients seeking eyelid surgery.
