Eyes are the gates to our soul and naturally attract a lot of attention. We can find plenty of articles on how important the eye contact is and we depend on our eyes in many occasions. Therefore there is no wonder why eye lid surgery is so popular among us. Due to aging, loss of collagen and thus elasticity our eyes get tired look with baggy and sagging upper eye lids. This can be easily solved by minor cosmetic eye lid surgery called blepharoplasty.

What is blepharoplasty surgery?

Blepharoplasty – eye lid surgery or full incisional eyelid surgery

The procedure is performed by having an incision from the medial canthus to the lateral canthus at the upper eyelid.

This incision allows the surgeon to remove the excess and sagged skin and secondly resect orbital fat. Once these surgical activities are done, the new upper eyelid can be fixed and modeled or shaped so that it looks tight and elastic.

Stiches are used to fix the newly shaped eyelid and must be remained for at least one week after the procedure. The eyelid surgery requires local anesthesia and sedation so the post operation recovery is very quick and the client can be discharged from the clinic on the same day.

This procedure is hardly ever indicated in young clients unless they suffer from asymmetrical eyes or have undergone an accident affecting their eyes. The results are long-term and may well remain for as long as ten years.
