Blepharoplasty is recommended for patients who have excess or hanging eyelid skin covering the natural fold of the upper eye. It is also the treatment for eyelid laxity or lower lid droop. Patients who have puffy, baggy eyelids can also benefit from this surgery. In addition, eyelid surgery can remove herniated fat of the lower eyelid which can cause bulging and eyelid puffiness. Dark circles under the eyes can result from shadows cast by fat bulges in the lower lids. Consult Dr. Morea in our Raleigh, NC cosmetic surgery office for your eyelid surgery concerns. He can help you by recommending the best approach and restore or create a brighter, more rested and alert appearance for you.
