Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Whilst the eyes are often the first feature that you notice about a person, it is also the first area that is susceptible to the first signs of ageing.
As we age, excess skin and fat can accumulate around the eye area, resulting in loose or sagging skin, which disturbs the natural contours of the eye.
The skin around the eye area is very delicate and fragile and can rapidly show signs of ageing, giving eyes the appearance of being tired and heavy.
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery provides the greatest benefits in facial rejuvenation. It brings tired, drooping or puffy eyelids back to life by re-creating a youthful contour and a long lasting rested appearance to the eyes.

Understanding the procedure:
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) involves removal of this excess skin and fat to correct drooping and sagging making you look more rested and alert. Blepharoplasty is also used to correct Ptosis or Blepharoptosis. This occurs when the eyelid becomes droopy due to weak eyelid muscles, sometimes causing impaired vision.
Upper eyelid: To remove excess skin from the upper eyelids, incisions are made in the eyelid fold. Any fatty deposits are removed, and in some cases, where the brow itself has dropped, can be repositioned at a higher level. Virtually imperceptible scars are hidden along the upper eyelid crease where they are easily concealed with everyday make-up.
Lower eyelid: Fatty tissue from the lower eyelids may be removed either through an incision in the skin (just below the eyelashes) or more commonly now, through an incision in the inside surface of the eyelid. Usually no sutures are required with this method.
