Blepharoplasty surgery, more commonly known as an eyelift or simply eyelid surgery, is specifically designed to fight the appearance of sagging skin around the eyes to restore a youthful appearance to your face. This is performed by removing excess skin and tissue around the upper and lower eyelids.
For an upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery, the surgeon will make a number of small incisions in the natural crease of the eyelid before excess skin (and sometimes fat) is removed before the wound is then stitched up using very fine stitches. Any scarring associated with this treatment will remain hidden in the natural crease of the eyelid.
For a lower eyelid blepharoplasty surgery, excess skin and fat will be removed from bags below the eyes via a cut on the outside of the lower eyelid below the eyelashes (although sometimes this will be performed on the inside of the eyelid instead).
It’s important to understand that whilst this treatment is purposely designed to get rid of any sagging skin around the eyes, it will not eliminate the appearance of wrinkles such as crows feet and they may still require the addition of fillers to effectively fight off their signs of ageing.
