The first part of the face that exhibits signs of ageing is the area around the eyes. Sagging upper eyelids and under eye bags that come with the natural process of ageing can be corrected through the plastic surgery procedure called Blepharoplasty. It is a minor cosmetic procedure that can refresh the appearance of the overall face leaving you appear younger.
Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid Lift Surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to improve the overall appearance of the eyes. There are two types of the eyelid surgery – upper and lower eyelid surgery. The upper eyelid plastic surgery procedure can benefit those patients whose upper lids have sagged low to reduce their field of vision. On the other hand, lower eyelid surgery can be beneficial for patients who want to correct puffy or saggy lower eyelids. In the eyelid surgery, excess fat deposits and tissues are removed for producing a more youthful and refreshed facial aesthetic. The surgery can be performed under either general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia.
The surgeon would make the incision line at the natural eyelid crease through which she or he would remove excess fat, muscle and skin. The surgeon might use laser for removing this excess tissue and fat deposit for reducing bruising and swelling.
When it comes to performing lower eyelid procedure, there are several options.
• In traditional approach, the incision is made below the eyelashes, repositioning and/or trimming excess fat deposit and fat followed by tightening of the lower eyelid muscle.
• In transconjunctival approach, performed for enhancing the puffiness and eyelid bags, the plastic surgeon makes the incision inside the eyelid. Through this approach, the surgeon can remove excess fat but not excess skin.
• The ‘skin pinch’ blepharoplasty removes only a bit of skin. This is an effective approach if you have strong lower eyelid support and a little skin. In some patients, laser resurfacing can both remove wrinkles and tighten excess skin.
• The use of Hyaluronic Acid, HA fillers, is a non-surgical method for the lower eyelid surgery. Juvéderm, Restylane and other soft tissue fillers can be injected into the tear trough for rejuvenating the appearance of the under eye area. The results of this method lasts for nearly six months.
Both upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed together in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures such as cheek augmentation or face lift.
