Facts about eyelid surgery
13 March 2013Eyelid surgery is the perfect choice for those who want to improve the look of their eyes by making them seem wider, bigger and brighter, but what exactly does the surgery entail? There are two different types of surgery available upper eyelid and lower eyelid, also known as an upper blepharoplasty and a lower blepharoplasty, the Star explains. Upper eyelid surgery is used to remove excess fat from underneath the skin, thus reducing puffiness, while it also tightens loose or sagging skin to prevent folds from forming around the outsides of the eyes. Alternatively, lower eyelid surgery is used to remove excess skin and wrinkles, while any eye bags or droopiness can be corrected. After the surgery, the area will be swollen and bruised, but this will subside and after a few weeks the improvements will be noticeable. Over time the skin will continue to age naturally, however the results of the treatment will last for many years and it will help to delay the ageing process around the eyes.
