Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)

Blepharoplasty refers to the operation to remove skin from the upper lid.

Excess skin develops through ageing of the skin. This fold of skin can affect vision if it comes over the visual axis and also causes cosmetic concerns. A successful blepharoplasty operation both improves vision and the appearance of the lid.

Southern Cross Affiliated provider benefit to blepharoplasty patients:
