Overview

Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery is a cosmetic procedure to correct the appearance of the upper lids, lower lids or both. Blepharoplasty is combination of Greek words “Blepharon” which means Eyelid and “Plassein” means to Form.

Eyes are considered to be the most attractive part of our face and also said to exhibit the first sign of ageing or any type of stress. This aesthetic procedure thus helps in removing excess drooping skin, muscle and fat located near the eyelids which can change the appearance of face and makes you look younger.

Drooping eyelids also known as Blepharoptosis or Ptosis often affect one or both eyes and can cause obstruction in vision if left unattended. It is broadly classified into 2 types :

One is Congenital Ptosis which is caused due to inappropriate development of eyelid muscle whereas the other one is Acquired Ptosis which happens when muscle of eyelid gets weak or thin.

Drooping or Ptosis can be further classified as follows :

  • Neurogenic Ptosis : It is condition where nerves of eyelids are effected.
  • Mechanical Ptosis : This condition is more obvious with advancement of the age due to mechanical actions of eyelids over the time.
  • Myogenic Ptosis : This condition occurs because of muscle weakness of eyelids.
  • Apo-neurotic ptosis : In this condition weakening of eyelid muscles occurs due to its degeneration.
