Eye bags? Tired eyesight? Perhaps you need…
blepharoplasty (eyelid correction). During the procedure the surgeon removes the excess skin from the upper or lower eyelids. Well performed blepharoplasty also reduces wrinkles and improves shape of your eyes. The effect is long lasting (for about 10-15 years). Scars are hidden. They are placed under the lower lashes or in an inner part of the eyelid skin tissue. Blepharoplasty can be even recommended to you by your ophthalmologist as it may improve your vision. This procedure can be done in local anaesthesia, in analgosedation, or in global anaesthesia (when combined with other procedures).
Eyelid correction surgery might be combined with other facial aesthetic procedures, such as facelift. Your surgeon can also apply Botox (botulotoxin) during the procedure, to smoothe wrinkles in the outer eye corners.
