Lower Lid Blephroplasty
Lower lid blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess tissue from the lower eyelids. There are different reasons you will be seeking out blepharoplasty and different underlying causes for the type of blepharoplasty (and or any other relevant procedure), you will need to address these. The specifics of these as relating to you will be covered during your consultation.
Blepharoplasty can be undertaken for skin access, functional reasons (including shadowing), bulging and tired looking eyes, wrinkling and dark circles, sagging amongst many others. It can be effective in addressing some, but not all, these different causes. Underlying fatty tissue that produces bagginess may also be selectively removed or repositioned. In some patients, who have looseness between the lower eyelid and the eyeball, consideration for tightening of the lower eyelid (Canthoplasty/Canthopexy) at the time of blepharoplasty may be recommended.
Eyelid surgery cannot stop the process of aging, completely remove “crow’s feet” or other wrinkles or eliminate dark circles under the eyes. It can, however, diminish the look of loose skin and bagginess in the eyelid region and significantly refresh your appearance.
Blepharoplasty surgery is customised for every patient depending on their particular needs. It can be performed alone, in conjunction with the upper eyelids, the midface, or in conjunction with other surgical procedures of the face. The surgery is often done as a local anaesthetic with sedation but a general anaesthetic may be offered following discussion with Mr Saleh.
