The most common problem with the upper eyelid is excess skin that droops and hangs over the eyes. Not only does this look unappealing, but it can also obstruct vision for a patient. The doctor will create an incision along the natural fold of the eyelid and extract excess fat and tissue to remove any bulges. Once done, excess skin will be trimmed and the cut will be closed with fine sutures. There are cases when fat tissues are merely re positioned, instead of excised.
This operation can be done under general anesthesia, in combination with another procedure, under sedation or under local anesthesia only.
