EYELID SURGERY (BLEPHAROPLASTY)
A Rejuvenated Appearance Around the Eyes
The eyes are the first place we look when talking with someone. And nothing gives away the effects of age and gravity than droopy, tired eyes or bags under the eyes. Excess fat, wrinkles and hooded lids creates a fatigued and older look.
With eyelid surgery, medically known as a blepharoplasty, your surgeon can help rejuvenate the appearance surrounding the eyes, improving the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. This provides patients with a more youthful, rested and more alert look.
WHY EYELID SURGERY?
There are various reasons for having eyelid surgery, and your surgeon has extensive experience creating revitalised and rejuvenated upper and lower eyelids for patients. The reasons for wanting blepharoplasty include:
Hooded eyelids: Having excess upper eyelid skin can lead to hooded lids, which give the appearance of tiredness and fatigue. At the extreme, hooded eyelids can even obscure vision.
Bags under the eyes: As we grow older, we often develop bags underneath our eyes. It is usually caused by excessive stretching of the lower eyelid layers, and is a problem that is easily reversed with blepharoplasty.
Sagging skin and wrinkles under the eyes: Laxity of the skin and tissue under the eyes gives an aged appearance, and blepharoplasty is used to smooth the wrinkles.
Heavy, droopy eyes: Eyelids that have excessive amounts of fat can make you look tired all the time. This fat can be extracted during the surgery, leaving you with a more alert appearance.
