A blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a fantastic procedure in that it can totally rejuvenate the eye area which has a beneficial impact on the appearance of the face as a whole. Generally, the scars of a blepharoplasty can be very well hidden and often no one will be able to pinpoint exactly what you’ve had done except you look refreshed and less tired and stressed.
Blepharoplasty is split into upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery, although the two procedures can be combined if necessary. Milton Keynes-based blepharoplasty expert Mr Sudip Ghosh will evaluate you in your consultation and give you solid advice on which surgery will be most beneficial to you and if it should be combined with additional non-surgical procedures for the best results.
An upper eyelid surgery is best suited for those who have lots of wrinkles on the upper eyelids – women often present at Mr Ghosh’s Buckinghamshire eyelid surgery consultation complaining that they are unable to put make-up on. Some patients, both male and female, can find their vision is obscured by the skin laxity on the upper lid.
It is essential that the brow is also assessed when considering an upper eyelid procedure because if there is too much drooping of the brow area, a brow lift might be the preferred option.
What can a lower lid blepharoplasty do?
Eyebag removal surgery is suitable for patients – both male and female – that have very baggy and puffy lower eyelids. Surgery can minimise this by removing fat and/or skin, although it is important not to remove too much as that can leave the patient looking gaunt.
Although there will be some improvement to the wrinkles present on the lower lid, it is worth exploring your non-surgical alternatives and Mr Ghosh can advise you on these.
What are my non-surgical alternatives to a lower lid blepharoplasty?
Botox, also known as Anti-Wrinkle Injections, is incredibly effective on treating wrinkles under the eye, particularly on the crow’s feet. Another option that will give a subtle but effective improvement is laser treatments. The new generation fractional lasers are gentle enough to use on this delicate area.
