Blepharoplasty is the term for surgically repairing the drooping of one or both upper eyelids. This may occur in varying degrees from slight drooping to complete closure of the involved eyelid. In the most severe cases, the drooping can obstruct the visual field and cause positional head changes.
Blepharoplasty works to elevate the eyelid position by strengthening the attachment between the muscle and eyelid.
This helps overcome drooping of one or both eyelids that has occurred due to age, trauma, or as a result of diseases, such as a third
nerve palsy or myasthenia gravis.
