When is eyelid surgery medically necessary?


Eyelid surgery is medically necessary when the eyelid droops in such a way that it interferes with vision or the eye can no longer close properly, which puts the eye at risk of drying out or becoming infected. The surgeon can operate on both the upper and lower eyelid to remove excess fat and skin. The remaining skin is then tightened, closed with fine sutures and protected by adhesive steps and compression bandages.
