Blepharoplasty or eye lift surgery
Everyone knows that beautiful eyes can illuminate a persons face
Eyes make a face expressive. In today’s society eyes are very important. With our eyes we usually make the first contact with others.
Your eyes are the windows of your soul.
Your eyes show whether you are happy, sad or tired.
Unfortunately, the eyelids are the first to show signs of ageing. When a person gets older, the eyelids loose their elasticity. The skin around the eye loosens, the muscle relaxes and small wrinkles appear. You are undoubtedly familiar with them: the small crow’s feet. After that dark rings under the eyes and «bags» can appear. This makes you look tired, weary and sad. Ageing can cause deep wrinkles and bags, but -just as important- they can also be a result of hereditary factors. This explains why also young people can suffer from sagging eyelids and bags. The degradation of the skin of the upper eyelids results most of the time in a surplus of skin, the so-called excess skin.
The amount of excess skin can be so important that it obstructs a clear vision.
Place both your thumbs on your upper eyelid and carefully pull the eyelids slightly up. Does your vision improve? Do you see better? Do you look better?
In order to look a few years younger, many consult an oculoplastic surgeon, a doctor specialised in plastic surgery of the eyelids, to perform a blepharoplasty, an eyelid correction. A simple and almost risk free surgical intervention, but one that requires a very skillful surgeon.
A well performed blepharoplasty lets you regain that youthful, fresh, healthy and so much desired look.
Some patients try to remedy and camouflage the problem with everything that is available at the moment on the cosmetic market. And there certainly are good products on the markets. But the results are not effective, not longlasting and never entirely satisfying. The result of a simple surgical procedure is, contrary to the available cosmetic treatments, permanent and highly satisfying.
Who can benefit
Excess skin and bags often have nothing to do with your age. Very often your ancestors are to blame. Hereditary factors are a determining factor or at least play a major role. Women usually only decide to have a surgical intervention when they are in their forties or fifties. However, the predisposition and the contours of the eyes are already visible and can be ascertained at a much earlier age. Therefore, an eyelid correction does not need to be postponed until a woman reaches a certain age. The procedure can be done much earlier, as young as the age of 18.
There is no need to wait to undergo this surgical procedure to correct and enhance your look until you have reached an advanced age. This applies to women as well as to men.
You suffer from excess skin
Excess skin (a surplus of skin of the upper eyelids) can be caused by many factors. One is heredity. The others are ageing and exposure to ultra violet radiation, like the rays of the sun. The surplus skin makes the eyelid heavier and causes you to look tired and sad. Moreover, it can impair your vision.
Of all the available plastic surgical procedures, the eyelid correction (or blepharoplasty) is the one that is performed the most. With a blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids the excess skin and the underlying fat is surgically removed, immediately resulting in a younger and more attractive look.
You have «bags» under your eyes
Like excess skin, dark rings and bags under the eyes can be caused by hereditary factors. Whilst time is progressing the dark rings and bags become more visible. However, there is no need to accept that as just a fact of life. Bags can be minimised neatly or -in most cases- be removed completely by a simple surgical procedure. This applies to women as well as men. The correction of the lower eyelids is done transconjunctivally. This means that it is done from the inside of the eyelid. There are no sutures needed and there are no visible scars. The result is a very natural, refreshed and younger look.
Eyelid corrections for men
The most effective (and mostly performed) aesthetic procedure for men is the correction of the lower eyelids. Manymen suffer from heavy bags underneath their eyes. However, these are easily removed. The correction is performed through the inside of the lower eyelid, leaving no scars and without the need for suturing.
The correction of the upper eyelids in men is highly effective. The intervention that gives a very natural and beautiful result with women, can -when performed on men- leave a «surgical» and unnatural impression. Therefore, not too much skin and underlying fat should be removed to give a more subtle look. With this in mind, the result will be a younger and refreshed look.
