Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is an operation performed to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both, providing a more youthful face and a rested, bright eyed look. More specifically, it treats the sagging of the upper eyelids, removing excess skin, fat and the ‘bags’ of the lower eyelids by tightening the skin.
The cosmetic effect lasts several years and in some cases, is even permanent. Successful blepharoplasty restores the freshness and radiance of the eyes, resulting in eyelids that ‘blend in’ harmony with the rest of the facial features. In cases of intense and extensive facial sagging an eyelid surgery will give a result that is mismatched to the rest of the face, therefore in this circumstance the eyelid surgery can be combined with an additional surgery such as a temporal lift, facelift or lifting of the neck, which can be achieved simultaneously to achieve the best and more natural aesthetic results.
In cases where the concern is mild to moderate, blepharoplasty can now also be performed without a knife; by injecting autologous fat. This innovative micro-fat grafting technique offers immediate and spectacular results, particularly for dark circles and fine wrinkles, in a more painless way compared to conventional blepharoplasty.
