For fresher-looking skin above the eyes
Blepharoplasty Dubai | 5 June 2019
Eyelid surgery could help to address drooping skin and deep wrinkles on the eyelids that can create a tired and aged appearance. Eyelid surgery, or upper blepharoplasty, is designed to remove the excess skin from above the eye for a tighter and more youthful look. If you’re unhappy that you have heavy eyelids with excess skin and deep wrinkles, you may benefit from eyelid surgery. As we age, the skin around our eyes starts to lose its elasticity. It is not uncommon to develop eye bags, as our muscles relax, causing both the upper and/or lower eyelids to sag. In addition, our upper eyelids can also start to droop. This effect is often heightened in smokers or those who have had excessive sun exposure. Blepharoplasty is designed to remove loose skin and excess fatty tissue around the eye area, tightening the relaxed muscles and giving the skin a firmer, more youthful appearance. It is a common aesthetic procedure both men and women can benefit from to achieve a fresher, more youthful appearance.
How the Blepharoplasty Operation is performed
Blepharoplasty can be carried out to improve the appearance of either the upper eye or lower eyelids, or both if required. Eyelid surgery involves the surgeon making tiny incisions along the natural crease of the eye (upper) carefully separating the skin from underlying structures and removing or repositioning the fatty tissue before stretching the skin and stitching it back together ensuring any wrinkles are smoothed out. The duration of the procedure itself only take around thirty to sixty minutes and is usually carried out under a general anaesthetic although there are some instances whereby a patient and I will be in agreement to carry the treatment out under a local anaesthetic – either way, you are able to return home on the same day.
The Blepharoplasty Incision Site
Depending on whether you decide to have upper, lower or both eyelids treated at the same time affects where your incisions will be. For instance, if you opt for an upper blepharoplasty, the incision will follow the natural crease of the eye, so will be minimally visible, if it’s a lower eyelid treatment, the incision will be placed just under the lower lash line, or even transconjunctivally which mean along the inside wall of the lower lid meaning a scar would be completely invisible.
