What are the benefits of upper eyelid blepharoplasty?
The benefits of upper eyelid blepharoplasty can be cosmetic or functional, sometimes we substitute the word medical for functional because it means that you having your upper eyelid blepharoplasty done, because it is interfering with your vision. So it is interfering with the function of how you see, your visual fields, it is giving you headaches, maybe giving you heaviness, watering eye, and all that comes under the term functional.
Whereas cosmetic may be that you just want a little small amount of skin removed for your eyelid surgery, because you are ageing more on your eyelids, then you are on the rest of your face. And then we just redress the balance doing a smaller upper eyelid surgery blepharoplasty.
