These terms may be used to refer to any operation to repair or reconstruct an eyelid.

A blepharoplasty can involve rearrangement or adjustment of the existing tissues of the eyelid, or may in some cases use tissue from other sites. There are more specific terms used to describe a blepharoplasty carried out in particular circumstances and / or done in particular ways.
