Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that modifies the eyelidsboth upper and lower by the removal of excess skin and fat. As the ageingprocess occurs excess skin sometimes extends over the upper eye lids and peripheral vision is often impaired. Some young people can also be affected by this. Lower eyelid Blepharoplasty is mainly performed for cosmetic reasons to reduce puffiness or ‘bags’. It is therefore a procedure that can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons.
When it comes to expressing your deepest thoughts and emotions there is no facial feature quite as important as your eyes. If they look tired, saggy or puffy not only can your appearance suffer but the image you project to others may also be affected.
Droopy and overhung upper lids and sagging lower lids can become a problem for anyone. Eyelid problems are often one of the first signs of ageing, but even young people can be affected.
Chronic allergies can cause the eyelids to swell, speeding the development of overhanging upper lids or bags under the eyes. Sun exposure, excessive squinting and habitual eye rubbing can promote sagginess and heredity also plays a very significant part in the process. Fortunately, eyelid problems can be treated very effectively through Blepharoplasty, a relatively simple procedure that removes excess skin, muscle and fatty tissue. Blepharoplasty can open your eyes dramatically to give you a fresher, brighter and more youthful appearance.
