Spotlight on eyelid surgery

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Ageing of the upper and lower eyelids is normally due to a combination of loose skin and protrusion of fat.  Eyelid surgery (also referred to as blepharoplasty) is a common surgical procedure that is designed to rejuvenate the eye area, making you look more rested and in some cases younger.  In severe cases it can also be used to help improve vision where excess tissue in the upper eyelid causes drooping that obstructs ones vision. 

Blepharoplasty can be performed on upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. It is used to treat:

  • Bags under the eye area
  • Excess fatty deposits that can appear as puffiness in the upper or lower eyelids
  • Excess skin and wrinkles in the lower eyelid area
  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper lid, sometimes impairing vision.

Eyelid surgery is most successful on adult patients who have healthy facial tissue and who have realistic expectations as to the level of improvement that can be achieved. Mr Mutimer will discuss your individual circumstances and best advise the appropriate eyelid procedure for you.

If you would like to know more about eyelid surgery we suggest you view eyelid surgery in 3D on our site or please feel free to contact us to make an appointment with Mr Mutimer.
