How Blepharoplasty is done?

First things first: a Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid, or both depending on your surgical aims, and involves the surgeon gently removing the excess eyelid skin before neatly closing the incision.

During an upper Blepharoplasty, Dr Yannis will mark the upper eyelid, using a medical protractor to measure the amount of skin that will be removed – usually this will be millimetres. An Upper Blepharoplasty is most suitable for someone whose eyelids are heavy or causing hooding. A good way to see what a Blepharoplasty would look like on you would be to lift and smoothen the upper eyelid skin gently.

For an Lower Eyelid Surgery, which is more suitable for those who have visibly puffy and wrinkly under-eyes, the measuring and marking process will be the same as an Upper Eye Lift. However, a Lower Blepharoplasty is able to reduce fat that can form beneath the under-eyes as well as treating just the superficial, surface layer of skin that causes laxity.

What a lot of patients don’t know, is that if you have visibly protruding eye bags, this can be caused because of swelling (oedema) and liquid retention, however it can also be caused by excess fat pads in the tear trough region. An experienced doctor will be able to confirm which applies at the consultation stage and advise on the best course of action.

How will Blepharoplasty change your face?

One of the marvellous things about a Blepharoplasty is that it can transform the face (in a good way). After looking at this result, you’ll realise what a big impact the eyes make in facial aesthetics.

See how much of a difference a Blepharoplasty has made to one of Dr Yannis’ patients: she looks younger, the crepey skin beneath her eyes has gone, a double eyelid crease has been created to replace her initially rather hooded one, and because of all these effects, her nose actually looks smaller and more lifted.
