If you find your appearance has been impacted by the ageing skin surrounding your eyes or that your eyelids have begun to droop and are also affecting your ability to see, you may be interested in undergoing an eyelid surgery.
The area around the eyes is one of the first places to display the signs of ageing, and can make you appear tired and older than you feel. As we age, the eyelids can develop excess skin that droops over the upper eyelids or falls loosely under the lower eyelids making us appear fatigues and older the necessary.
Some of the fatty tissue behind the eyelids can also bulge out, creating the appearance of ‘bags’ under the eyes. Our aesthetic doctors can perform an eyelid reduction (blepharoplasty) procedure to remove the excess fat and skin from around your eyes to revitalise and freshen up your look.
This will result in a younger appearance with reduced bagginess and wrinkles, which before could lead to you looking haggard even when you have had a good night’s rest! We can also tighten the muscles and supporting structures of the eyelids, creating a stronger and less tired appearance.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids or both. It can be done alone or at the same time as other cosmetic surgery procedures, and is one of the most common surgical treatments practiced in Australia.
