A blepharoplasty procedure, also referred to as an eyelift, is a popular cosmetic procedure for people who suffer from droopy eyelids among other conditions. It typically involves the removal of excess muscle, fat, and skin from around the eye. Droopy eyebrows, droopy upper lids, bags under the eyes or sagging eyebrows can be caused by excess fat and age. Our team at REAL Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery in Melbourne has helped countless patients get alert and more youthful-looking eyes with the help of blepharoplasty. Apart from cosmetic reasons, blepharoplasty is also used to correct vision issues caused by droopy eyelids.
You may opt for blepharoplasty if you are unable to open your eyes due to droopy and sagging eyelids or bags pulling down the lower eyelid. With the help of an upper and/or lower lid blepharoplasty, your eyes may appear younger by removing excess tissue. You may consider this procedure in the following situations:
- Peripheral vision is being affected due to excess skin on the upper eyelid
- Bags under eyes are pulling down the lower lids
- Excess skin on the lower lids
- Upper eyelids appearing baggy or drooping
It is possible to pair this procedure with other surgical procedures like a facelift.
What to Expect
Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure that isn’t performed without an initial consultation. In the case that both the upper and lower eyelids need attention, the surgeon may start with the upper eyelids, removing and repositioning excess fat, skin, and muscle. After the procedure, you may proceed with your recovery. The rested and youthful appearance of your eyes may show in the days and weeks to come. Most people are satisfied with the results of their procedure and claim to feel more confident with their improved look and vision.
