Eyelid Aesthetics (Blepharoplasty)

Due to aging or genetic factors, the collection of eyelids and under-eye bags is removed, giving the eye a more vigorous and tense appearance. This procedure can be done not only to achieve an aesthetic appearance but also because excess skin and fat on the eyelids affect the visual comfort of the person. Anyone over the age of 18 can easily do this procedure.

In order to remove or realign extra skin and fat, upper eyelid blepharoplasty entails making incisions in the crease of the upper eyelid. Sutures are then used to close the incisions, and they are normally removed a few days later.

Incisions may be made inside the lower eyelid or just below the lower lash line during a lower eyelid blepharoplasty. The excess skin and fat will then be removed or repositioned by the surgeon before the incisions are stitched up.

When doing eyelid surgery, the skin around the eyes may occasionally also be tightened and smoothed using laser technology.

In addition to drooping or sagging eyelids, eyelid surgery can also help with puffiness, under-eye bags, wrinkles, and fine lines around the eyes. If drooping eyelids are impeding vision, it can also be done to improve vision in those situations.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with eyelid surgery, including infection, bleeding, scarring, and changes in vision. However, when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, blepharoplasty can be a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the eyes and achieve a more youthful, rested, and refreshed look.
