Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is performed to remove skin or to remove fat from eye lids. In fact, it is mainly done to remove bagginess from the eyes. Even though the surgery is also done for cosmetic reasons, it is also a great way to improve eyesight of old people whose sagging upper eyelids get in between their vision.

Interestingly, it is known as eyelid surgery, but the term eyelid is just a misconception here since the eyelid is not removed during the surgery. There are mainly two types of eye lid surgery, the upper eyelid surgery and the lower eyelid surgery. In simple words, depending on your need you can either choose cosmetic eyelid surgery or functional eyelid surgery.

Now coming to cosmetic eyelid surgery Houston is a type of surgery which is not medically necessary. It is mainly done to improve the appearance. Unfortunately, you might have noticed that your lower and upper eyelids have become droopy and baggy. It is mainly because of aging process whereby the skin looses the elasticity. Such conditions can surely detract from the attractiveness of the eyes and face. It might even cause an older or tired appearance.

Coming to functional blepharoplasty, a functional eyelid surgery is usually performed due to medical reasons. In most of the cases, it is performed to remove the loose skin from the upper eyelids to improve vision.

Apart from this reason, there are two other instances when you need to go through medical eye lid surgery. These include irritation caused from excessive rubbing of the eyelid skin and forehead discomfort caused due to overused muscles. Blepharoplasty of lower and upper eyelids can also be performed together if necessary. The recovery after the surgery is also fast. It has also been seen that people who have undergone this surgery report satisfactory as well as improved self-image.
