Eyelid Surgery, Eyelid Cosmetic Surgery (Blepharopplasty)

Your eyes are the focal point of your face and puffy bags and excess skin under them could make you look tired and worn. Today, however, there is a surgical technique designed specifically for the removal of that “tired” look that can change your physical appearance by playing a vital positive role in facial harmony and your emotional perspective.

Dr. Francisco de Melo Consulting Plastic Surgeon at Aesthetica Clinic conducts eye lid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, to rejuvenate patients’ upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both.

Blepharoplasty can remove some of the excess fat and skin that accumulates around the eye, giving you a younger, fresher, more “awake” look.

The procedure seeks to obtain a smooth contour around the eyes that will create a brighter eye and a more rested, younger appearance. Removing the excess skin and fat, or by repositioning the anatomical structures responsible for an aged and tired look.

Eye lid surgery also can improve functional problems resulting from aging like ectropion (outward turning of the lower eyelid), entropion (inward turning) and eyelid ptosis (drooping upper eyelid). We can distinguish between upper and lower eyelid surgery as they address different problems and are, in reality, two different and independent procedures.
