BLEPHAROPLASTY: UPPER EYELID RESHAPING SURGERY
In order to create a less-tired and more youthful appearance, an upper eyelid lift, also known as an upper blepharoplasty, involves removing the folds of loose skin and bulges of projecting fat that sit over the top eyelids.
The skin and muscles surrounding the eyes weaken and stretch as a result of gravity’s downward pull and a loss of skin elasticity. This leads to an accumulation of loose skin and fat protrusions that give the impression of “eye bags” or a hooded look of the upper eyelid skin. Smoking, sun exposure, and weight loss may all have an accelerating influence on this feature, which may run in families.
