Many people turn to eyelid surgery to fix common aesthetic and functional eye concerns such as droopy eyelids, eyebags and excess skin around the eye area. Blepharoplasty is one of our most popular procedures, especially among individuals looking to reverse the signs of ageing and achieve a more youthful look. If you’re interested in undergoing eyelid surgery, we discuss your different options below:
Lower Eyelid Surgery
Bags under the eyes caused by lack of sleep, excess fat or loose skin can create a tired appearance. Lower blepharoplasty can get rid of all these concerns to give the patient a more youthful and livelier expression. It’s important to remember, however, that while lower eyelid surgery can get rid of bags under the eyes, it cannot remove or lessen the appearance of dark circles.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery helps patients get rid of sagging or droopy eyelids caused by excess skin or excess fat in the eye area. While most patients undergo upper eyelid blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the eye area and create a more youthful appearance, this procedure can also be done for functional reasons. In some cases, the loose eyelid can impair vision, making the procedure a necessity to restore the normal field of vision.
Double Eyelid Surgery
While not a commonly requested procedure in Australia, double eyelid surgery or “East Asian blepharoplasty” is a popular procedure among East Asians who usually have very little to no upper or lower eyelid crease. For East Asians, having eyelid creases creates a more aesthetically pleasing and youthful look, making it one of their most in-demand procedures. Double eyelid surgery also improves sagging eyelids, resulting in a much firmer eye area.
While plastic surgery blepharoplasty in Sydney can work wonders for sagging eyelids, it cannot fix other concerns near the eye area such as crows feet or drooping eyebrows. To learn more about this procedure, schedule a consultation with Artiste Plastic Surgery today.
