Open up your eyes and reduce the signs of ageing
Blepharoplasty Dubai | 1 May 2019
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is cosmetic surgery to remove excess skin or fat from the eyelids. The aim is to improve hooded or droopy eyelids or eye bags.
A thin fold of skin that protects the eye, the eyelid is an area of the body particularly susceptible to effects of ageing. Heavy, drooping eyelids, dark circles and sagging skin around the eyes can make the face look older. In many cases people start to develop the characteristics in their late teens. Eyelid surgery, also known as ‘Eyelid rejuvenation’ or ‘Blepharoplasty surgery’, is a tried and tested procedure that removes excess tissue around the eyes to produce a more youthful appearance.
As the eyelid is a thin fold of skin it is particularly susceptible to the effects of ageing. Tiny changes to the skin on or around either eye can be quite noticeable and can give the face an unbalanced look. Eyelid surgery, also known as ‘Eyelid rejuvenation’ or ‘Blepharoplasty surgery’, is the best way of combating this.
Over time the eyelid can sag and become ‘hooded’. It can restrict vision and can effect confidence. A tried and tested procedure, Blepharoplasty surgery can rectify this by removing excess tissue. The consultant will cut along the fold of eyelid to remove excess skin, muscle and fat before closing the incision. The incisions are performed along the natural contours of the eyelids and into the laughter lines at the corner of the eyes. Patients can normally leave shortly after the operation and recuperate at home but will need a period of rest and to avoid any strenuous work or sporting activity until the swelling subsides and the stitches have been removed, usually about seven days later.
