Functional Blepharoplasty

Functional Blepharoplasty is a procedure that modifies the eye region of your face to remove visual impairment.

One of the leading causes of obstruction vision is Dermatochalasis. Dermatochalasis is a medical condition that consists of redundant or loose skin located on the lower or upper eyelids and may be considered part of the normal ageing process, but there may be other causes as well.

It may affect one eye but is often asymmetric and may be cosmetic or cause functional visual impairment.
  Functional Blepharoplasty
Dermatochalasis is different from the less common blepharochalasis, which is seen more in younger patients. Blepharochalasis may also cause loose skin and and the appearance of orbital fat. In the lower eyelids this can be quite dramatic and this protruding tissue is known as malar bags or festoons.
One of the caveats of having the functional upper eyelid procedure is a strong probability of cosmetic enhancement to the eyes. Since the procedure is done in a very similar fashion to aesthetic upper eyelid blepharoplasty, there is often times a significant cosmetic improvement to your appearance.
 
There is another condition called upper eyelid ptosis (pronounced toe-sis) that can also contribute to impaired vision. Ptosis of the upper eyelid is not due to excess weighted skin. In most facial plastic surgery practices, it is more commonly due to an abnormality with a small muscle within the upper eyelid (called the levator muscle) and a connective tissue attached to the muscle (called the levator aponeurosis).
