Upper Lid Blephroplasty
Upper lid blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess tissue from the upper eyelids (including skin, muscle and/or fat). Patients have different needs with regards to blepharoplasty and the different underlying causes, and hence the type of blepharoplasty (along with any other procedure) will be tailored to your individual circumstances, once discussed in your consultation.
Underlying fatty tissue that produces bagginess may also be selectively removed or repositioned. Blepharoplasty surgery can improve drooping skin and bagginess and can help improve vision in patients who have hooding of their upper eyelids. Although it can add an upper eyelid crease to the Asian eyelid, it will not erase evidence of one’s racial or ethnic heritage. Blepharoplasty will not completely remove “crow’s feet” or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under the eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows.
Eyelid surgery cannot stop the process of ageing. It can, however, diminish the look of loose skin and bagginess in the eyelid region. The surgery is often done as a local anaesthetic day case but a sedative may be offered following discussion with Mr Saleh.
