The upper and lower eyelids play a significant role in your eye and facial appearance. When your eyelids sag or droop, you can look years older and constantly tired or sad. If you have loose skin on your eyelids, plastic surgery can tighten and rejuvenate your eyes. At London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring, we offer blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, to give your eyes a refreshed appearance.
Blepharoplasty is a delicate and precise cosmetic surgery that is used to remove excess skin and fat from the eyelids. The most common reason for sagging or loose skin on the eyelids is aging, but it can also be linked to genetics and other factors. Droopy upper eyelids and bags under the eyes can be altered to give the eyes a more youthful and energetic appearance.
When the upper eyelid skin loosens and sags, it creates a droopy eye appearance. The eyes look tired or lazy, and much older. Eye makeup is difficult to adhere, and some people may have vision issues if the skin droops over the eyelid edge. An upper eyelid lift tightens and removes excess skin and fat through a small incision along the eyelid crease.
The thin skin under the eyes is vulnerable to sagging and wrinkling with age. As the skin loses elasticity, it becomes even thinner, sagging and revealing discolorations under the skin. Eye bags and dark circles can occur with aging lower eyelids, making the eyes and face look perpetually tired. A lower eyelid lift removes the excess skin and fat that causes eye bags. The incision can be made inside the lower eyelid or along the lash line to hide the scar.
Both upper and lower blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the eyes. Patients can have one or both performed, depending on their skin laxity on the eyelids. Blepharoplasty is often combined with a facelift procedure for a full-face rejuvenation.
