Upper / Lower Eyelid Surgery

As one ages, our eyelids stretch leaving the muscles supporting them to weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below the eyelid causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under the eyes. This condition is upsetting to many men and women. It is conflicting when one feels young and lives a healthy active life but has eyes that portray signs of aging, constant tired look and lids which are hooded and drooping.
Fortunately, there is a quick and easy fix through minor surgery. A relatively short procedure which can refresh and rejuvenate your facial appearance by removing excess fat, folds of skin and strengthening loose muscles in the upper eyelid and lower eyelid or both. It has also become an extremely popular surgery amongst men, not just women.

About the Procedure

Eyelid surgery is divided into upper and lower areas. It is possible to do either one or both simultaneously.
Lower eyelid surgery is designed to treat the bags under the eyes. Swelling of the lower eyelid area occurs due to a collection of fatty tissue which can be removed surgically fairly easily. The procedure is performed carefully and gently, ensuring only extra tissue is removed. An incision is made approximately 2 mm below the lower lashes or from inside the lower eyelid (conjunctiva) which leaves no visible scarring.
Upper eyelid surgery is designed to remove excess skin and fat from the eyelid. Eyelids differ in shape and structure from person to person, therefore the surgical approach is specific to each individual ensuring the most natural look possible.
Small fatty deposits can also accumulate in the corner of the eye, near the nose, which can also be removed surgically. By making an incision inside the natural fold of the eyelid, visible scarring can be avoided. This procedure is minimally invasive with a very small chance of complications.
