Doctor identifies best candidates for Blepharoplasty
16 July 2014Ever heard the phrase beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Well according to many Cosmetic Surgeons, theres a certain ring of truth behind this adage with Eye Bag Removal surgery fast becoming a must-have procedure for those looking to reclaim their youthful appearance! While several people may have a positive outlook on life and practise a cheery disposition, their eyes often give away a different story with their faces appearing tired due to features such as excess eyelid skin. However, theres a remedy that can turn back the hands (eyes?) of time: Blepharoplasty. Certified Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr Stephenson, states that the aim of an eyelid lift is to improve the look of upper/lower eyelids - with this procedure involving the removal of skin and/or fat by way of eyelid incisions within the natural creases; so as to ensure these marks are barely visible post-healing. So when should you consider a Blepharoplasty? The following factors are a good indication:
- If upper lid skin is sagging/affects vision
- If lower eyelids have loose skin along with fat pockets that bulge
- Weak contour/rounding of lower eyelids due to ageing
- Needing reconstruction to the area following previous surgery.
