Functional upper lid Blepharoplasty is a medically necessary eyelid surgery that removes the excess skin from the upper eyelid. This excess skin can limit your peripheral vision and prevent you from being able to see sufficiently making this a medically necessary procedure for many patients. You may also experience tired eyes or sad eyes due to extra tissue and fat surrounding the eye. In many cases, the forehead and brow muscles start to be used in an attempt to lift your eyelids out of the way in order to see better. The surgery works to remove or re-position the extra tissue and fat surrounding the eye. Muscles and tendons in the surrounding area may also be strengthened during the procedure.
If you suffer from limited vision due to excess tissue and fat around your eye, Functional Upper Lid Blepharoplasty can be your answer!
