EYELID SURGERY

Eyelid Surgery in Faridabad

Undoubtedly, eyes being windows to the soul they are the first thing about a person to be noticed. They deserve to shine bright like the soul itself.

Ageing impacts eyelids heavily, unfortunately too early in some because the skin of eyelids and surrounding the eyes is very thin, loose and flexible to facilitate frequent rapid movements. The best treatments for anti-ageing leave behind the eyes unaddressed, disturbing harmony and actually revealing the age.

BLEPHAROPLASTY or eyelid surgery helps to get rid of all the loose, lax, drooping skin of eyelids along with the unsightly fat bulges around the eyes and makes the eyes appear more youthful.

Ideal Candidates for Eyelid Surgery

  • Blepharoplasty is the procedure of choice for patients with lax, sagging skin of upper and/or lower eyelids surrounding the eyes which gives them a perpetually tired or a sad look.
  • There may be isolated bulges in the upper or lower eyelid or the region surrounding the eye or the eyes may be diffusely puffy. There may be associated drooping of the eyes or the eyebrows. The lower lid may be baggy with prominent creases at the junction of the cheek with the lower lid.
  • Some patients may have visible multiple fat deposits surrounding the eyes technically called Xanthelasma. Their excision gives best results when combined with blepharoplasty.
  • Asian patients who desire to have an additional skin crease to their upper eyelid to give depth to the eyes can also opt for this procedure. They may not be happy and wish to eliminate the skin fold at the inner corner of the eye (epicanthal folds) which gives a rounded look to the palpebral fissure instead of oval. Blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery can help attain beautiful almond shape eyes.
  • Drooping eyelids may obstruct vision in some which can be corrected by blepharoplasty. Although some patients may require a brow lift surgery in addition.
