Ageing, like other facial features, also affects eyelids. Changes which appear in the eyelid and are consequential to saggy and droopy skin and bags around the eye can be rectified by the eyelid surgery. Medically known as Blepharoplasty, the cosmetic surgery procedure helps in achieving improved eyelids. Lower and upper eyelids can be rectified simultaneously and it helps in rejuvenating the tiring and dull eyes. Excess skin and protruding fat deposits can also be addressed by excision.
The procedure aims at repairing droopy eyelids by removing excess muscles, fat and skin. If you want to reinvent your looks by getting rid of droopy and sagging skin and fat deposits around eyes then blepharoplasty is the right procedure for you.
When is the right time to consider eyelid surgery?
It is usually the younger people who prefer undergoing this surgery because of the fat deposits protruding through the wall orbital septum either in the lower or upper eyelid. This, in turn, makes your eyes appear tired and dull.
However, older people have excess eyelid skin because of the natural process of ageing. It can be with or without protruding fat. Most people who wish to have rejuvenated and younger appearance prefer undergoing this surgery. There are some people who develop restricted vision because of droopy eyelids. Eyelid surgery can also correct this problem.
How is the surgery performed?
Marking of excess fat and skin is done in a standing position. It can be performed either under general or local anesthesia. The cosmetic surgeon makes an incision in the natural crease of the eyelid. Then the excess fat deposits or skin is removed . The Incision is closed with suture leaving an extremely thin scar which fades away over the period of time.
