Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can improve the appearance of the upper or lower eyelids, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This surgery can help give the eyes a younger look.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, surgery on the upper eyelid can remove fatty deposits to reduce puffiness.  It can also remove excess skin from the upper eyelids.

To alter the appearance of the lower eyelids, surgeons can correct droopiness, remove the look of bags under the eyes and remove excess skin and wrinkles, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Good candidates for eyelid surgery are those who are healthy, don’t smoke and those without serious eye conditions.
