Eyelid correction surgery, or blepharoplasty, is one of the most common aesthetic and functional surgery procedures.
Correction of the upper eyelids, or blepharoplasty, focuses on the area between the eyebrows and eyelashes. The elasticity of the skin and subcutaneous tissue decreases with age, leading the fat tissue underneath eyebrows to sink and making the upper part look heavy. The gaze may therefore look tired, which immediately ages a person.
To correct the upper eyelids, your eye surgeon will precisely mark the places on your eyelids where the loose tissue and fat need to be removed. An incision is then made in the center of the natural fold of your eyelid and the loose tissue and fat are removed.
The wound is closed and after healing, it remains neatly hidden in the natural fold of the eyelid. To speed up the healing process, the stitches are covered with a special wound patch.
