Cosmetic eye surgery (blepharoplasty) is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery done on the eye lids. It is a safe and effective aesthetic treatment that can help rejuvenate appearance. Blepharoplasty deals with the shape of the upper and lower eye lid.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty focuses on the region between the eyebrow and the eyelashes while lower eyelid blepharoplasty focuses on the area between the eyelashes and the cheek.
This procedure works on the removal of excess skin and muscle from these areas and either reduces or repositions the underlying fat to a more youthful configuration.
Droopy Eyelids, usually occurs as a result of impaired function of the muscle that lifts the lid. This condition means that the border of either one or both of the upper eyelids droop to a lower position than normal. This can therefore cause unwanted aesthetic problems, giving people the appearance of a tired look. It can also cause problems in vision if the eyelid is unable to clear the visual axis and in some severe cases, the droopy eyelid covers some or all of the eye, therefore affection vision.
The type of treatment offered depends on many factors, but for those suffering with severe condition of droopy which affects vision and appearance, it is recommended to correct the issue by surgically raising one or both eyelids.
