Correct Drooping Eyelids & Bags Under Your Eyes
Eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty, removes skin, fat and muscle that contribute to droopy eyes. The surgery lasts between one to three hours where you’ll be given local anesthesia. You may be sensitive to light, experience double or blurred vision, or have excessive tearing. However, all will start to subside after the first few weeks. Typically, healing is slow, but the results are great.
Droopy eyelids are not just about your appearance. Your vision can be compromised if loose eye lid skin covers part of your pupil, for instance. As a result, this condition is treatable and considered medically necessary. This means in many cases insurance covers the procedure.
