Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid) Surgery is a is a popular cosmetic procedure which removes excess skin and fat from the upper eyelid to reduce drooping and reverse the signs of ageing or removes skin and tissue from the lower eyelid to reduce puffiness and bags to rejuvenate the face. This type of cosmetic surgery can alter the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. The aim is to improve the appearance of the area surrounding the eyes.
The eyes are a window to our souls, but sometimes the effects of ageing and the heaviness of excess skin on the upper eyelid can cause the eyelid to droop, obstruct vision, cause irritation or impede that special someone’s ability to see into your sparkling eyes.
Those busy nights in the office and spendings hours upon hours on the computer or smartphone, leave our eyes feeling heavy and tired. Those constantly tired eyes can leave unsightly eye bags which are difficult to get rid of.
The goal of blepharoplasty (eyelid) surgery is to create a natural looking shape that compliments your face and results in improved quality of life.
Blepharoplasty can alter:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid – this can sometimes affect a person’s vision
- Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness beneath the eyelid skin
- Bags under the eyes
- Droopiness of the lower eyelids – to avoid showing white below the iris
- Extra skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
