As we grow older, the aging process starts to show and can be especially obvious around the eyes. Lower eyelid bags start to become visible, the upper eyelids become saggy and wrinkles begin to appear.
If you have recently noticed signs of aging around your eyes and it is starting to affect your self-confidence, having personalized blepharoplasty surgery with Dr Constantine could be the solution.
What is Blepharoplasty Surgery?
A blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the upper or lower eyelids, leaving the area looking rejuvenated and youthful.
The procedure aims to improve hooded and droopy eyelids, making you look younger and feel more confident.
Whether the upper or lower eyelids are operated on depends on the type of results a person wants to achieve. Blepharoplasty is an extremely personal procedure, that’s why we recommend working with our surgeon Dr Constantine through an initial consultation to discuss the results you would like to see from the operation.
Upper eyelid surgery involves making an incision along the natural crease of the eyelid. Excess fat and skin is then cut away and the incision is then closed. The scar left behind will be hidden in the crease of your eyelid.
Lower eyelid surgery involves making an incision along/just below the lower lash line or inside the eyelid. Excess fat skin is then removed from the bags under the eye. The removed fat is sometimes injected into other areas of the eyelid to create a more symmetrical look. Once the fat has been removed, the incision is stitched up.
Swelling often subsides between 1 and 2 months after surgery and this is when the results become noticeable and clear.
There will be no visible scarring after the procedure, however, it is important to consider that even after surgery the aging process continues and the skin surrounding the eyes may start to droop in future.
Blepharoplasty surgery comes with many benefits that don’t just include an improvement in the overall appearance of the eye. The procedure can correct puffiness making you appear less tired, corrects visible lines and wrinkles that surround the eye and can make your face look more youthful.
In some cases, eyelid surgery can also improve vision as it removes the droopy skin that once obscured the line of sight.
