Eyelid Correction India

An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove skin and to add or remove fat from the eyelids. The term “eyelid lift” is a misnomer because the eyelid is not truly lifted during surgery. Upper blepharoplasty surgery uses incisions to allow for removal of skin and fat.

The operative goals of a blepharoplasty procedure are the restoration of the correct functioning to the affected eyelid and the restoration of the aesthetics of the eye-region of the face, which are achieved by eliminating excess skin from the eyelid, smoothing the underlying eye muscles, tightening the supporting structures, and resecting and re-draping the excess fat of the retroseptal area of the eye, in order to produce a smooth anatomic transition from the lower eyelid to the cheek.

A blepharoplasty procedure usually is performed through external surgical incisions made along the natural skin lines of the upper and the lower eyelids, which creases then hide the surgical scars from view, especially when effected in the skin creases below the eyelashes of the lower eyelid. According to the technique applied by the plastic surgeon, the incisions can be made from the conjunctiva, the interior surface of the lower eyelid, as in the case of a transconjunctival blepharoplasty.

During an eyelid correction, just enough loose skin above or beneath the eye is removed to restore a tight, young and healthy look without taking out too much, so that the normal functionality of the eye is retained perfectly.

Eyelid correction can be performed both on the upper and the lower eyelids. In the first case it is called upper-blepharoplasty, in the second it is called lower-blepharoplasty. It happens that people choose one of both procedures just as often as they choose only one.

In an eye surgery procedure, the usual correction or modification is of the upper and the lower eyelids, and of the surrounding tissues of the eyebrows, the upper nasal-bridge area, and the upper portions of the cheeks, which are achieved by modifying the periosteal coverings of the facial bones that form the orbit (eye socket). The periosteum comprises two-layer connective tissues that cover the bones of the human body:

  1. the external layer of networks of dense, connective tissues with blood vessels, and
  2. the internal, deep layer of collagenous bundles composed of spindle-shaped cells of connective tissue, and a network of thin, elastic fibres.

When is eyelid correction useful to you?

Due to aging, the elasticity of the skin changes drastically. With time, bags might appear due to stressful or sad times in your life. The slight lowering of the eyelids can also be hereditary. In this case, an eyelid correction can be useful at a younger age. Often this procedure is done for aesthetic reasons but baggy eyelids can also cause physical discomfort and lead to loss of sight or a constant tired feel of the eyes.

Eyelid corrections can be performed both on the upper and the lower eyelids. You will definitely benefit from eyelid correction of the upper eyelids if you suffer from sad eyes, too small eyes, impaired eyesight or constantly tired eyes. Eyelid correction of the lower eyelids will surely help you if you experience loose skin under the eyes, bags under the eyes or a tired appearance.
