What are the benefits of eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery can have many benefits, most importantly to vision. 

Vision can be improved once the excess, droopy eyelids are removed, according to the Premier Physician Network (PPN). 

According to the American Society of Plastic SurgeonsOff Site Icon (ASPS), eyelid surgery also can treat: 

  • Bags under the eyes 
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal the white of the eye below the iris 
  • Excess skin and wrinkles on the lower lids 
  • Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids 
  • Loose, sagging skin that creates folds that distort the natural contour of the upper eyelid 

Talk to your doctor to learn more information about the benefits of eyelid surgery.
