Cosmetic Surgeon talks benefits of Blepharoplasty

11 December 2014

From cheating our way to younger looking eyes with strategically placed eye tape to trying all sorts of Anti-Aging creams, there's never been an effective way to achieve a youthful complexion – until now. Thanks to the advancements within the Cosmetic Surgery field, Blepharoplasty – commonly known as Eye Bag Removal surgery – is proving a popular procedure for patients looking to wind back the years. So how does it work?

"Blepharoplasty is a type of medical procedure that is often used to repair and rejuvenate droopy eyelids by removing excess fat, skin and muscle," explains Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr Peter Hilger. While many view this type of Surgery as offering cosmetic benefits, it can also be performed for medical purposes – especially for people suffering from excess skin on the upper eyelid impairing their peripheral vision.

"Undergoing Blepharoplasty Surgery can benefit patients in a number of ways, by removing the excess fat and skin around the eyes and reveal a more youthful appearance," Dr Hilger adds. "Many who undergo the procedure say that it changes the way they feel about themselves in terms of confidence and self-esteem."
