Eyelid surgery

The benefits of a blepharoplasty

The eyelids are the crown that coats the eyes, they help shape the look and shape the face.

Factors like heredity, too much sun exposure or other factors can cause unsightly puffiness to appear on and under the eyelids. These are excess skin and fat that weighs down the eyes and makes them look tired and aged. The upper and lower eyelids can be corrected with eyelid surgery. Surgical gesture, this is an intervention that has seen real progress in recent years, through the thoroughness of the technique and the precision of the gesture. For the upper eyelids, it is a question of making disappear the fall of the eyebrows, caused by too heavy eyelids, which weigh on the eyelashes and are accentuated sometimes by a pocket of grease at the internal corner of the eye. The whole art of blepharoplasty will consist in correcting these defects without attenuating the expression of the look, by removing as little skin as possible. For the lower eyelids, this is to remove dark circles linked to excess skin and not the naturally colored dark circles which cannot be treated with eyelid surgery. On the other hand, the fatty hernia or the muscular relaxation of the lower eyelid corrects itself very well.

What techniques were used ?

The classic technique is to make an incision under the eyelashes that ends in a fold in the crow's feet. This incision, which will therefore be invisible, will allow the treatment of significant slackening of the skin, as well as of the muscles. Another technique is the removal of fatty hernias by the conjunctival route. It has the advantage of not leaving any scar. For upper eyelid surgery, the incision will be made in a natural crease in the eyelid, which will also make the scar invisible.
