Blepharoplasty surgery can improve the appearance of the eye areaOur face changes as we age and this can often be seen in the eye area. The skin on the eyelid may begin to sag as it loses elasticity, giving your eyes a droopy appearance. For some people, this effect of ageing is simply a cosmetic concern, whereas, for others, it can obstruct vision. Regardless of your reasons for wanting to address the problem, a blepharoplasty can be your solution. This procedure alters the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both.
Eyelid surgery improves the appearance of your eyesBlepharoplasty is commonly referred to as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift and involves the surgical removal of excess fat, muscle and tissue on the regions of the upper, lower or both eyelids. There are several concerns that many people experience in the eye area due to ageing. A blepharoplasty can most certainly improve the appearance of your eyes and address the signs of ageing, although there are certain things that this procedure can and cannot do. This kind of procedure can improve the appearance of:
- Puffiness of upper eyelids due to fatty deposits
- Loose upper eyelid skin that appears to be sagging
- An excessive amount of fatty deposits in the lower eyelids that resemble a bag or more commonly known as “eye bags”
- Drooping lower eyelids
