Many people suffer from excess skin in the upper eyelids as a result of sagging skin around the eye. In some cases, this condition is reinforced by an increase in adipose tissue in the eye socket, essentially pushing the skin forward. Not only can this cause vision impediments, but also a heavy and tired feeling around the eyes or even headaches. The weakening of the upper eyelid can be corrected with a surgical procedure. The correction of the upper eyelids is done under local anesthesia. Before surgery, the surgeon marks the part of the skin that will be removed. Next, an incision is made in the crease of the upper eyelid and excess skin is removed, either with or without excess fat tissue. Most of the scar is tucked away in the natural fold of the upper eyelid and hardly visible over time.
