Why Do You Need Blepharoplasty?
The eyelid surgery is designed to restructure and reshape the eyelid by re-positioning or removing excess tissue. There are 2 types of eyelid surgery namely:
- Upper Eyelid Surgery: This surgery is used to improve vision loss and appearance of the eye which is due to aging or can be hereditary. This surgery is specifically focused on upper eyelid which can restore both appearance and function in most of the cases. It is usually performed through external incisions made along the natural lines of the eyelids.
- Lower Eyelid Surgery: This surgery is more focused towards removal of the wrinkles and correction of baggy eyes around the lower lid of the eyes. Lower Eyelid surgery is done through an incision below the lash line so that the scar is almost inconspicuous.
The perfect candidate for the eyelid surgery are adults with excess skin, puffy bags of tissue around eyes or drooping skin. Along with people who opt for eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons, there are some conditions which causes the upper eyelid to droop impairing normal vision. Patients should have realistic expectations about the results and be aware of the limitations of the surgery.
