#1 What is the treatment for droopy upper eyelids?

The main purpose of an upper eyelid blepharoplasty is to remove excess skin that causes a fatigued or hooded appearance.
Top eyelid blepharoplasty surgery involves the removal of skin and fat from the upper lids to give them a more youthful appearance.
The incision is made in the crease of the upper eyelid.
Blepharoplasty surgery on the upper eyelids is commonly done as an outpatient operation with a brief general anesthesia.
