A surgery to correct disfigurations, deformities of the eyelids, and to aesthetically modify the eye region is known as Blepharoplasty.
This surgery is performed to restore a youthful appearance of upper and lower eyelids while preserving their natural shape.
The surgery can be performed if you face any of the following:
Excessive sagging or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin.
Excess upper eyelid interfering the vision.
Loss of natural upper eyelid crease.
Puffy fat pouches in the lids creating an aged and tired appearance.
Blepharoplasty creates a more youthful and rested appearance.
It assists in widening the visual fields if the vision has been partially blocked by your upper lid skin.
Softening of the wrinkle lines.
An outpatient procedure carried under local anaesthesia/ sedation. The incisions for the surgery are made where the natural crease should be in the upper lids and is below the lash line in the lower lids and it removes the excess fat and skin.
External incision or scar is avoided if there are only excess fat and no excess skin. The fat is removed through an incision inside the lower lids. This procedure is known as transconjunctival blepharoplasty. It can then be combined with laser tightening for better aesthetic results.
