What is Blepharoplasty?
(Blepharoplasty) for “hooded” upper eyelids and “baggy” lower eyelids. “I always look tired when I am well rested” is the most common complaint at consultation.
The effects of age and sunlight on the delicate eyelid skin cause it to lose its elasticity and to stretch. This produces hooding of the upper eyelids while the lower eyelids develop bags.
There is a separate young age group that inherits lower eyelid bags which became worse with age.
Asian women often seek to have a more Caucasian “double” eyelid crease. This does not occur naturally in the oriental upper eyelid.
Advantages of laser surgery
There are advantages of laser surgery over older scalpel techniques.
- No skin incision in the lower eyelid and therefore no dragging down of the lower eyelid.
- Minimal bruising, swelling and discomfort.
- Shorter recovery period and therefore minimal time away from work and social activities.
This surgery is often combined with resurfacing of the wrinkled skin around the eyelids (refer to Laser Skin Resurfacing).
