What is Upper Blepharoplasty?

Answer's Upper Blepharoplasty removes loose skin, unnecessary fat, and muscles to create a clearer and brighter shape to the eyes. 

When people are aging, the skin on the eyelids becomes looser due to eye movement. Thus, Upper Blepharoplasty surgery is mainly for middle-aged people. When the muscles are weak, the skin of the upper eyelids covers the eyes which also inhibits sight and leads to droopy looking eyes. The droopy eyes tend to cover the pupils and cause ocular problems. In order to solve this functional problem, the skin of the upper eyelids is reshaped. This process removes any loose or unnecessary skin on the upper eyelids.
