What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharon means eyelid and -plasty means to mould. Blepharoplasty is surgery to correct eyelid problems, including ectropion and entropion (drooping eyelids) and baggy eyelids.
It may be performed for medical reasons where the condition is causing discomfort or pain, or if it affects vision or poses a risk to the health of the eyes. Surgery may also be carried out for cosmetic reasons where a patient is not happy with the appearance of their eyelids.
Upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the UK. At Benenden Hospital, it’s performed regularly by our expert Oculoplastic Surgeons.
