Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to change the shape or size of the eyelid. This procedure can be done for aesthetic purposes, such as improving the balance of the eyelid or improving the appearance of the eyelid. The procedure can also be done for functional purposes, such as correcting breathing problems in the eyelid or repairing damage caused by injury or trauma.

The blepharoplasty procedure is usually done under anesthesia and takes several hours. The surgeon changes the shape or size of the eyelid by cutting or adding eyelid bone and cartilage. In addition, the surgeon also remodels the skin around the eyelid, improving the appearance of the eyelid.

The blepharoplasty procedure is performed by a surgeon and is usually performed in a surgical clinic or hospital setting. The procedure is usually performed under anesthesia and is performed as an outpatient, meaning the patient can go home the same day. Post-surgery, the patient usually requires bed rest for a few days and then begins to return to normal. After the blepharoplasty procedure, the patient usually has less swelling and bruising within a few weeks.
