An upper lid blepharoplasty is performed for the removal of excess, redundant skin from the upper eyelid (CPT Code 15823). This fold of skin may mechanically weight the lid, causing it to droop, and obscuring the superior portion of the visual field. Often removal of this fold of skin will lead to resolution of any eyelid drooping. The two skin edges are then sutured together. A blepharoplasty procedure often includes the removal of orbital fat as well as the excess skin.
Hope this helps
