Upper Eyelid Reduction Surgery (also known as: ‘Blepharoplasty‘) is performed to lose folds of excess skin that droop over the upper eyelids and is surgically removed leaving eyes appearing younger, larger and open. With ageing, excessive sun and genetic predisposition the skin in the upper eyelids droop, to rest on the eyelashes, obstructing vision.
The surgery is rewarding, incision lines are well hidden in the upper eyelid fold, and down time is minimal.
This cosmetic surgery can be combined with:
i) Facelift surgery to correct generalised ageing signs of face and neck.
ii) Circumoral rejuvenation with laser and fat injections.
iii) Neck liposuction to remove fatty depositions under chin.
Dr Harper will advise at consultation on your suitability for the procedure. He will also discuss the surgery and options, explain the risks involved and advise on expected outcomes and results. This will enable you to make a fully informed decision to proceed to surgery with safety and confidence.
BENEFITS OF UPPER EYELID REDUCTION / BLEPHAROPLASTY SURGERY
The blepharoplasty / upper eyedlid reduction procedure recreates the youthful eye as seen in the patient as at 25 years of age. The youthful upper eyelid opens up removing the hood of skin resting on the lashes. The normal almond shape of the eye is retained. The upper eyelid fold is well defined and is positioned above the eyelashes.
