Blepharoplasty is also called eyelid lift surgery. It is performed to correct the sagging of skin in the upper and lower eyelids. This improves the appearance of your eyelids and the area around it to give you a younger and more relaxed look.
This is a common condition and is caused by a blockage in one of the small glands in the eyelid. A small lump develops as the normal contents cannot escape. Although it is unsightly, it is easy to treat and should not cause you any major problems with your vision.
As a first step in treatment, you will be prescribed antibiotics to reduce the inflammation in the eyelid. Heat treatment with hot compresses can also help and may actually release the contents of the cyst which means that further intervention is not needed.
Ptosis is the medical term for a condition in which the upper eyelid droops down slightly or in severe cases, the lid droops low enough to cover the whole pupil and block normal vision. Ptosis can occur in both children and adults.
Tear ducts are membranous canals that drain tears from the eyes into the nasal cavity. Blocked tear ducts, also known as dacryostenosis or congenital lacrimal duct obstruction, is a common condition in infants that may affect one or both eyes. Blocked tear ducts may also occur in adults resulting in a persistently watery eye.

It is also performed to remove the excess skin and bags under the lower eyelids. It improves the appearance of your eyelids and the area around it to give you a younger and more relaxed look.
Eyelid retraction is a condition characterized by the upward displacement of the upper eyelid or downward displacement of the lower eyelid thereby exposing the sclera (white part of the eye). Lower eyelid retraction may be a result of shallow orbits (deepened bony eye sockets), hereditary condtions or certain characteristics of the eyelid.
Nasolabial folds, commonly known as "smile or laugh lines" are the deep lines or the indented skin between the corner of the nose and corner of the mouth.
With age and excessive exposure to sunlight, the loss of skin elasticity and firmness is related to the breakdown of collagen (protein responsible for skin tightness). This causes the skin to become loose, appear saggy, and to form folds.
