Blepharoplasty - Eyelid Cosmetic Surgery Abroad

Upper Blepharoplasty

The eyes are the number one feature that people notice when they first meet. The eyes are as a facial feature unfortunately they are also one of the first to show the signs of ageing. Eyelid bags, sagging skin or wrinkles can give the appearance of being tired, stressed or aged. By removing the unwanted fat or skin and tightening the wrinkles, you can easily strip away 10 years or more from your age. Ageing is an irreversible, relentless process of tissue degeneration resulting in loss of elasticity and stretching of skin. The rate of this ageing process varies from individual to individual and depends on the person's genetic make-up. It is hastened by the effects of sun exposure, smoking and the stresses of daily life. Because eyes have so much expression, male and female patients alike often choose to have eyelid surgery as their first plastic surgery procedure.
Eyelid Surgery Before and After
Hooding of the upper eyelids is the combined effect of descent of the eyebrows into the lid area (blepharoptosis) and an increase in the upper eyelid skin due to loss of elasticity and stretching of the skin (blepharochalasis) If eyelids are droopy (ptosis) this can also be corrected by shortening the muscle, that raises your upper eyelid.
In upper eyelid surgery the surgeon first marks the individual lines and creases of the lids in order to keep the scars as invisible as possible along the natural skin fold. The incision is made, and excess fat, muscle, and loose skin are removed. Fine sutures are used to close the incisions, thereby minimizing the visibility of any scar.
