Luckily, methods are available for plastic improvement of facial appearance, including the skin around the eyes. Eyelid lift is a procedure that markedly rejuvenates the look of the face. The procedures may be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.
Eyelid ptosis is the effect diminishing firmness of the skin and other anatomical structures. The upper eyelids are at particular risk of this deformation. It consists of sagging skin folds being formed and potentially limiting the field of vision. Deep grooves are formed beneath the lower eyelids along with swellings caused by orbital fat herniation into the subcutaneous tissue. The problem is commonly referred to as under-eye bags.
What does the procedure involve?
The eyelid lift surgery is performed in local or short-lasting intravenous anesthesia.
Upper eyelid correction
Upper eyelid lift consists in incision being made along the upper eyelid fold and excess fat being removed. Excess orbital fat may also be removed. The scar is located within the eyelid fold, being invisible when the eyes are open. After several weeks, the scar becomes paler and completely invisible.
Lower eyelid correction
Lower eyelid correction consists in incision being made beneath the eyelash line. Excess skin and fat are removed. Afterwards, the position of the orbicularis oculi muscle is corrected. If necessary, excess part of the muscle is also removed and the procedure is complete with the placement of sutures.
