Cosmetic Eye Procedure

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is the most common cosmetic eye procedure performed at Yale Medicine. For the upper lid, the procedure involves making an incision in the natural crease of the eyelid, and then removing and reshaping the excess skin, muscle, and fat that develop with age and sun exposure.
Blepharoplasty can also be performed on the lower eyelid. As people age, the tissue that holds the fat in place can loosen and the fat can protrude, giving the appearance of bags under the eyes.
