Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a common surgical procedure that can be requested for aesthetic and cosmetic reasons or to correct functional problems with the eyelids. The procedure itself can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid. The primary purpose is to remove excess skin from around the upper lid area. If you are interested in a consultation for blepharoplasty in Michigan, schedule an appointment with our ophthalmic surgeon Julie Boss, D.O. Dr. Boss performs lid surgeries right here in Big Rapids, MI.
The primary medical reason for the procedure is ptosis, a condition causing the eyelids to hang very low blocking vision. Blepharoplasty is a very effective way to improve sight in older people with sagging eyelids.
