The upper lids may droop for a variety of reasons, such as advanced age, family characteristics, or too much sun exposure. Even when you’re not tired, heavy hooded upper eyelids can make you appear older and stern. It can also be difficult to apply eye makeup because of the extra hanging skin.
A hooded appearance of the upper lid skin may be a cosmetic concern, but if the loose folds hang over your lashes, they might obstruct your vision. Upper Blepharoplasty can remove hanging skin, restore your vision and rejuvenate your look while also boosting your self-esteem.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of ageing around your eyes, Blepharoplasty might be the solution for you. It can erase years from your face by targeting prominent wrinkles and sagging skin around your eyelids. In some cases, when the brow is also dropping, it can be done in conjunction with a Minimally Invasive Brow Lift to achieve optimum results. The procedure is suitable for both men and women who want a fast way to look younger.
Upper Eyelid Surgery is usually carried out under local anaesthetic as a day case procedure. The incision is made along one of the natural lines in the upper eyelid which ensures that the scar is discreet and is placed in the natural crease of the upper lid. They are fine, fade quickly, and are hidden when you open your eyes. Excess fat is also removed; the loose muscle is tightened and the excess skin is trimmed away.
So if you’re considering Upper Blepharoplasty, don’t hesitate to get in touch today.
