The skin around the eye area is very thin, and is therefore susceptible to showing the first signs of ageing.
One of the main reasons a middle-aged face appears old and tired is due to excess fat and wrinkled, drooping skin on the upper eyelids.
Cosmetic or aesthetic eyelid surgery, also known as “blepharoplasty”, gets rid of this excess skin from the upper lids and eliminates bags under the eyes.
It also tightens the lower eyelid skin to bring freshness and life back to the eyes and a brighter, more alert, and rested general appearance. Upper eyelid surgery can also correct:
- Excess skin that obscures the natural fold of the upper eyelids
- Loose skin from the upper eyelids that affects vision
- Lower eyelids that are sagging or mal-positioned
Eyelid surgery can be performed independently or alongside complementary procedures including face lift or brow lift.
