However, drooping eyelids are extremely common but later on, belpharoplasty came into an action to treat sagging or drooping eyelids. This is a surgery that corrects the puffy eyes and drooping eyelids with the removal of extra skin, muscle and the fat. Actually, this surgery is the most common and the effective ways to restore a youthful appearance without the risk, recovery time associated, cost and the procedures.
