Eyelid lift (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid lift (Blepharoplasty) is one of the most commonly performed functional and aesthetic facial plastic surgical procedures. It deals with the contours of the upper and lower eyelid space.

  • In the upper eyelid, it concentrates the region between the eyebrow and the eyelashes. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty focuses on the area between the eyelashes and the cheek.

    In essence, this procedure concerns the removal of excess skin and muscle from these areas and either reduces or repositions the underlying fat to a more youthful configuration.

    Blepharoplasty can be performed for any of the following reasons,

    • A ‘tired’ look. This is the most common indication for surgery hereditary factors and evolutional changes can cause a drooping of skin and the tissues under the skin with protrusion of the underlying fat causing the ¨heavy eyelid¨ look, commonly associated with bulginess on the inner aspect of the eyelid.
    • Excess skin, muscle and fat in the lower lid gives a lined appearance and the presence of ‘bags’ under the eyes.
    • The appearance of the eyelids may be asymmetrical and blepharoplasty may be performed to improve symmetry
    • Saggy upper eyelid skin can obstruct the visual field (you may not be able to see the full extent of your lateral vision). Blepharoplasty is performed to remove this obstruction and improve vision.
