    What is Blepharoplasty?

    Eyes are the main focal point of the face. They play a major role in the attractiveness of the face (at rest and in dynamic movement). Cosmetic eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) can remove excess eyelid skin, correct bagginess and puffiness of the eyelids.

    Additional procedures like brow lift, eyelid lift, cheek lift and augmentation around the eyelids can further enhance the beauty of the face. Consideration of the relevant associated procedures if necessary is recommended for maximum results.

    Blepharoplasty is usually considered after the age of 35, it might be considered earlier in those who demonstrate the inherited tendency towards the indications of surgery. The idea behind Blepharoplasty is fine tuning of the eyelids’ shape, size and enhancing the glow of the eyes. It is aesthetically pleasing when the eyelids blend in with the soft tissue and the bones around them and also the inside of the eyes (such as the iris and white eye). Ideally the upper lid should be just touching the upper part of the iris and the lower lid should be just touching the lower part of the iris without covering too much of the iris or exposing  too much of the same. Any deviation from the normal position of the eyelid could be due to the aging process, heredity, any birth deformity, smoking, sun damage, inflammation, infection or trauma.

    Advantage of Laser Blepharoplasty over traditional scalpel method

    The advantages of Laser Blepharoplasty over the traditional scalpel method are - in this method there is a lot less bleeding and bruising as the laser seals as it cuts and it is a quicker procedure as it is a cleaner operation site.

    In Laser Blepharoplasty we can combine 2 functions of the laser to get the best results. The cutting laser is used to sculpt, to excise the extra skin in the upper eyelid and the fat from the upper and lower eyelids (even to minute amount with precision). The pulse mode laser is used to resurface the eyelid skin, to remove the fine wrinkles and to improve the texture and glow of the skin. The tissue can be tightened by defocusing the laser, especially the muscle.

    What it can achieve

    • The aim of upper Blepharoplasty is to reduce the amount of excess skin in the upper eyelid.
    • The aim of Lower Blepharoplasty is to reduce the bulge of the fat pad in the lower eyelid.
    • Both upper and lower Blepharoplasty, improve the quality and texture of the skin. The idea is to create a natural looking eyelid with fullness rather than radical operation with hollowness. (conservative approach is the best)
