Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess skin and muscle of the eyelids, both above and below as well as the underlying fatty tissue. Blepharoplasty can improve sagging skin and bags, and can help improve vision in older people who have a significant excess of upper eyelid that falls on the pupil. Although you can create a crease in the upper eyelid of one eye of Asian type, it will not erase evidence of ethnic racial traits. Blepharoplasty does not remove "crow's feet" or other wrinkles, dark "circles", nor lift a sagging eyebrows.
Blepharoplasty is designed individually for each patient, depending on their particular needs. It can be performed alone for upper, lower or both eyelids, or in combination with other surgical procedures on eyes, face, eyebrows or nose. Eyelid surgery cant stop the aging process, but can, however, reduce the appearance of sagging skin and bags in the eyelid region.
Alternative forms of treatment include skin laxity and puffiness of the eyelids by surgery. The improve the skin laxity, wrinkles and fatty deposits by other treatments or surgery such as a stretch of the front area, where indicated.
Other forms of eyelid surgery may be necessary if there are changes that affect the function of the eyelid such as drooping eyelids from muscle problems (ptosis) or looseness between the eyelid and eyeball (ectropion). Minor skin wrinkling may be improved through chemical peel or other skin treatments. Risks and potential complications to alternative forms of treatment.
Potential complications are associated with alternative surgical forms of treatment.
