Blepharoplasty is a Cutting-edge eye surgery and one of the most effective ways to give your entire face a fresh, radiant appearance. Incredible results with minimal downtime, inconvenience or scarring.

Description

Aging of the periorbital area often creates that undesirable tired look which often makes us look much older. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eye bag surgery, works to dramatically improve the appearance of ageing, droopy eyelids and puffy under eye bags. Loose skin on the eyelids or the undereye area can occur for a variety of reasons, including too much sun exposure, an unhealthy lifestyle, high cholesterol, stress or ageing. Blepharoplasty involves the removal of excess skin, muscle and fat from the upper and sometimes the lower lids. Brow lifting techniques, either endoscopic or direct, can be performed simultaneously if necessary. In this cosmetic eye surgery operation a cut is made in the natural skin fold of the upper lid. Excess skin and fat are removed and tightened if necessary from the orbital septum. After closure of the incision, the scar is in the skin fold of the upper lid, and therefore hardly visible. The procedure is suitable for both men and women with most patients being over 35.
