Upper and lower eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty

Upper and lower eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty

The ageing of the skin usually begins around the eyes because here the skin is very thin and soft. With the years a surplus of skin forms on the upper eyelid which is naturally related to age. The normal contour of the eyelid crease cannot be made out any more, the eyes appear tired. Especially in the morning hours, a distinctive swelling in the area of the upper eyelid is visible. The lower eyelids become puffy and bags develop because the fat tissue can break through underneath the eyes. These changes often contribute to a worn and tired look.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty  
The correction of lower and upper lid generally involves removing excess skin, muscle and fat from the eyelid. Scars are placed in natural creases and easily concealed. The reduction of fat is made with great care. Although bilateral blepharoplasty lid lift and tuck is a popular procedure, there are limitations as to what can be achieved. Fine wrinkles in the lower eyelid are not removed and removal of too much fat can produce a hollowing effect after a few years.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery can be carried out under local or general anaesthesia as a day procedure.
