Droopy, puffy eyes and eyelids can make you appear tired or older than you are. Eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, can restore the skin around your eyes to its natural, youthful appearance and drastically reduce the signs of aging. In some cases, it can even improve vision impaired by sagging lids.

First, an incision is made along the lid, and excess fat, muscle, and skin are trimmed away from the eyelid. This outpatient procedure, which typically takes one to three hours, is performed under anesthesia and is considered to be permanent in many cases--although it will not prevent natural aging. Post surgery, dry eyes, swelling, bruising, and sensitivity to light may occur, but such side effects will fade within 10 days.
