What happens on the day of functional upper eyelid surgery?

Functional upper eyelid surgery for hooded eyelids is called blepharoplasty which is the surgical removal under local anaesthetic of excess skin in the upper eyelids, interfering with the vision or function of the eyes. This surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic as this gives the best possible opportunity to get an optimal result.

What is the difference between cosmetic and functional upper eyelid surgery?

To determine whether the problem is an operation or whether merely cosmetic, the oculoplastic surgeon will ask you about symptoms. If you have a functional upper eyelid problem, you can benefit from a functional upper eyelid blepharoplasty performed to help restore the top field of vision that is impaired by the redundant excess upper eyelid tissues, mainly skin.
