Technically named “blepharoplasty,” eyelid surgery removes fat, excess skin, and muscle from your eyelids. This surgery corrects those puffy bags below your eyes, as well as drooping upper lids. These conditions all make you appear older and more tired than you actually are, and in some cases, can even negatively affect your vision.
As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken, while fat accumulates around your eyes. Bags, as a result, appear above and below.
