Surgery of the upper eyelid means that we remove excess skin and fat. This way, the surgeon can bring out the shape of your eyes. The scar will be hidden in the crease of your eye and be barely visible after surgery. Upper eyelid surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures.
Who is eyelid surgery intended for?
Our bodies change over the years, including our facial skin. Our skin loses its elasticity and sometimes fat accumulates in the upper and lower eyelids. This will cause eyes to start to droop, which makes you look older and may even limit your field of vision.
In some cases, it is congenital and something you have been dealing with from a young age. The good news is that anyone who has this problem can have eyelid surgery. Your surgeon will sit down with you to assess if this is the best option for you. In some cases, a combination of different procedures is needed to get the best result.
