What are the different types of eyelid surgery?

Eyes are windows to the soul. Eyes are the most important facial feature for men and women. Surrounding elements enhance the appeal for human eyes. One of these features is the eyelids. Eyelids determine how pronounced the aging signs will be. However, since the skin around the eye is delicate, it is easy to detect aging signs. These signs include fatty deposits, lines, and sagging skin. If not dealt with, these signs affect your appearance’s overall aesthetics. Some of these procedures include:

Upper Blepharoplasty

This procedure is done on the upper eyelid. It aims to address issues like puffiness, droopiness, and wrinkling. These undesirable traits affect your appearance, making you look exhausted, aged, and sad. Our surgeons can rectify these issues by creating a strategic incision within the eyelid’s crease. This helps to make it less conspicuous after healing.

Upper blepharoplasty ensures natural-looking results by tightening eye muscles, repositioning fat, and removing excess skin. The entire procedure takes about two hours, with a recovery period of two weeks. In addition, the results after an upper eyelid lift last up to eight years.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Aging decreases muscle elasticity. This leads to lower eyelids, dark circles, and a lean appearance. Lower blepharoplasty is done to combat these signs of degradation. Our surgeons make an incision below the lash line on the outer edge of the eyelid.

The surgeon will proceed to remove excess fat and skin before closing the incision. The procedure takes about two hours and a recovery time of ten days. Like an upper eyelid lift surgery, the results last up to eight years.

Transconjunctival Eyelid Surgery

Patients with excess fat pockets around the eyelids can benefit from this eyelid surgery. The procedure aims to make the eyes less swollen. Puffy eyes have the effect of making you look prematurely aged. Our surgeons perform this eyelid surgery to make precise adjustments to the orbital fat. If you have excellent skin elasticity, this type of eyelid surgery is perfect for removing eye bags.
