Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery

The eyelids are delicate structures and integral to protecting and maintaining the health of the eye. As we age, our entire skin thins out due to loss of collagen, tissue stretches and sags and the soft tissue loses volume. This collagen loss is accelerated by exposure to the sun. Often, the eyelids are the first place where this skin softening becomes obvious. Heavy upper eyelids may sag and interfere with vision affecting the patient’s superior field of vision causing the patient to frown the forehead constantly. Loss of elasticity of the skin and sagging may also cause lower eyelid ‘bags’, and cause protrusion of fat. This appearance may give the patient a ‘tired look’ and often seeks many non surgical treatments without a definite resolution.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery can help rejuvenate your appearance and is a common, safe and effective cosmetic surgical procedure when done by an experienced Oculoplastic surgeon. A scarless transconjunctival approach is usually done for selected lower eyelid blepharoplasty cases. In other cases, there may be asymmetrical upper eyelid skin folds for which upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery could also rectify the asymmetry and achieve a nice aesthetic outcome.
