Blepharoplasty

The presence of redundant skin and fat is more obvious as one gets older, where the skin loses its elasticity and appears redundant. The muscles of the eyelids also become slack resulting in accentuation of the fat pads within the eyelids.This applies to both upper and lower eyelids and can often result in an ‘aged’ and ‘tired’ appearance.

Description

The presence of redundant skin and fat is more obvious as one gets older, where the skin loses its elasticity and appears redundant. The muscles of the eyelids also become slack resulting in accentuation of the fat pads within the eyelids.This applies to both upper and lower eyelids and can often result in an ‘aged’ and ‘tired’ appearance. This can be corrected surgically and is said to be the most prolific operation in making the face appear younger. The surgery involves removing a segment of redundant skin and some fat. In some cases, only skin needs to be removed and at other times just fat needs removing to produce a rejuvenated appearance.
