BLEPHAROPLASTY TREATMENT BENEFITS, PROCEDURE & RECOVERY STEPS
The eye is the key feature of one’s face and eyelid plays an important role in the eye’s health. It protects the underlying tissues, maintains a moist environment and distributes tears across the surface for the removal of dust. As the skin ages, it loses its elasticity as the collagen levels that support the elasticity of the skin begin to decrease. In such conditions, people opt for a treatment called as eyelid uplift.
Eyelid surgery which is also called as blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical method. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is used to remove excess skin around the eyes and to reduce bags above or below the eyes. This surgery will make your eyes look younger and fresher. Many people with complaints of heavy, drooping eyelids (particularly late in the day) also find that their peripheral vision is impaired due to the eyelids hanging over the eye. Blepharoplasty may improve this.
Aging may cause loss of elasticity of the skin, and therefore excess skin gets collected on the upper and lower eyelids. Excess skin present on the upper eyelid cause an extra fold of skin to hang on the eyelashes and excess skin present on the lower eyelid develops the formation of wrinkles and bulges. This can be corrected by blepharoplasty.
