EYELID SURGERY (BLEPHAROPLASTY)
A Revitalised Appearance Around the Eyes
The eyes are an essential part of your body when it comes to giving away your age, tiredness, and stress. As they are the first place we look during a conversation, any wrinkles, excess fat or bags are immediately spotted.
Eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the areas around your eyes. This procedure, medically known as blepharoplasty, can improve the appearance of your upper eyelids or lower eyelids, or both of them. This will allow you to regain your youthful, fresh and alert look.
WHY EYELID SURGERY?
The eyelid surgery offers many benefits, which is why it’s so popular. Our surgeons have vast experience with both upper and lower eyelid surgeries. By undergoing the eyelid surgery, you can get rid of:
Bags under the eyes: With age, we tend to develop bags under the eyes. This can be caused by the stretching of lower layers of eyelids. However, this can easily be mended with eyelid surgery.
Hooded eyelids: Excess upper eyelid skin leads to hooded lids. This can create the look of fatigue and tiredness. In extreme cases, this can even obscure your vision.
Heavy eyes: Excessive amount of fat on the eyelids can create a tired, fatigued appearance. Eyelid surgery can be performed to extract this fat, giving you a rested, fresh appearance.
Wrinkles and sagging skin: Blepharoplasty is commonly used to smooth the wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of the skin and tissue under the eyes.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Eyelid surgery at Cosmetic Avenue ensures a youthful, rested appearance. As this procedure is used to improve the look of aging skin, it is most popular among the patients aged 30 and more. Not only does the skin lose flexibility with age, but gravity takes its toll as well. This effects with excessive skin gathering in the upper eyelids, which ultimately leads to drooping eyelids. When it comes to lower eyelids, the passage of time causes the loosening of the underlying muscle, as well as the skin.
Adult men and women with healthy muscles and facial tissue are good candidates for eyelid surgery. Additionally, it’s important for the candidates for this procedure to have realistic expectations as to what it can accomplish.
Signs that you are a good candidate for Eyelid Surgery:
- Hooded eyelids which affect your ability to see and your eyesight.
- Hooded eyelids that give you the appearance of permanent fatigue.
- Puffiness around the eyes, which makes you look older than you are.
HOW IS EYELID SURGERY PERFORMED?
Surgeons at Cosmetic Avenue perform both lower and upper eyelid surgeries.:
Upper eyelid surgery is performed to remove the stretched skin from your eyes area. This skin, if left unattended, causes wrinkles or hooding on the eyelash line. In the case of an underlying droopiness of the lid, it is possible to perform a muscle repair through an incision at the same time.
The procedure of lower eyelid surgery is performed to redistribute the fat within the lower eyelid, to remove the appearance of under-eye puffiness, as well as the appearance of bags. As blepharoplasty comes in several forms, the most appropriate one will be chosen during your initial consultation.
