There are a number of conditions that may affect the skin and muscles around the eye or cause the eyelid to become incorrectly positioned. Beyond the aesthetic factor, these issues usually need to be corrected because they can result in decreased vision and irritation of the eye.
By removing excess tissue and tightening the skin, functional eyelid surgery can not only correct defects and increase the visual field, but it can also benefit patients cosmetically by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, lines and sagging skin. These surgeries are typically performed as outpatient procedures with local anesthesia, and complications are rare.
