upper eyelid surgery
Upper eyelid ageing is probably the most common problem of middle age. It’s certainly the main contributor to that much disliked look of tiredness that comes with ageing. Eyes that once added liveliness to the face now appear flat and dull, having lost their expression under a layer of droopy skin. Drooping upper eyelids can cause significant functional and/or cosmetic problems. If you feel like your eyelids are affecting your daily life, you may be a good candidate for this elective procedure.
Are you a good candidate?
- Puffy upper eyelids
- Sagging upper eyelids
- Upper eyelid interfering with your vision
What is Upper Blephaloplasty?
Double Eyelid Surgery is also a method of blepharoplasty. The technique used can be identified in the method performed in the surgery such as the following:
- Full-Incision Double Eyelid Surgery : Full incision double-eyelid surgery is by far the most popular, and it is superior to other eyelid surgeries. Full incision double eyelid surgery is a popular choice for many due to its extended capability to enhance and modify the eyelids while addressing the signs of aging. Full-incision eyelid surgery produces permanent effects and can be applicable to all eye shapes.
- Partial-Incision Double Eyelid Surgery : A partial incision double-eyelid surgery involves making minor incisions on the eyelid to remove excess adipose tissue and loose muscle tissue. The muscles are then tightened and sutured to create the new crease. The benefit of this procedure is the minimal scarring and procedural discomfort during and after treatment. Partial double eyelid surgery is more commonly performed in Asia.
- Buried Sutured (Non-Incision) double eyelid surgery procedure : Also known as scarless double eyelid surgery, the buried suture method is minimally invasive and is used to create natural looking double eyelids. This method of double eyelid fold creation gained popularity when it first came about several decades ago as it was one of the first such procedures to create folds, and also because invasive procedures are not something everyone is comfortable with.
