Eye lid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, aims to tighten or remove sagging skin around the eye, resulting in a smoother and younger-looking appearance. Surgery can be performed on upper lids, lower lids, or both. Our surgeons work from the natural eyelid crease, meaning that it is possible to hide scars originating from the surgery. In addition to skin tightening, it is also possible to address eye bags.
Lower lid surgery is carried out with fat repositioning (not removal) because during the aging process some patients will absorb a substantial amount of the fat from the inside of their eye sockets. This mean that, if surgical fat removal or excessive manipulation has already been completed in that patient's eye, the orbit may hollow and they may have a more skeletal look in the long term. Drooping eyelids can block and reduce vision, and that's why it is common to feel tiredness while reading or watching television when one has such a problem. Patients who undergo eye lid surgery may well have better vision and improve the quality of their daily activities.
