Do you sometimes find that your eyes look sad and tired? With age, the skin loses its tone and wrinkles, and fine lines appear on the eyelids. Many factors, such as heredity or sun damage, can accelerate these changes. To help with this issue, there is eyelid surgery, otherwise known as blepharoplasty.

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to correct drooping eyelid problems. Drooping eyelids can be a nuisance for some people. Moreover, this drooping of the eyelids increases with age.

Blepharoplasty can also correct genetic problems such as bags under the eyes. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids only or on all four eyelids simultaneously. This procedure allows the eyes to look younger and less tired. Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure. You come in and out of the hospital or specialized clinic on the same day. This eyelid surgery aims to lighten the look of the eyes by removing the elements that appear over time: muscle relaxation and fatty hernia, bags of the lower eyelid, and the upper eyelid at the inner corner of the eye.

The change felt following eyelid surgery is almost immediate, but the results are not definitive for three months. This cosmetic eyelid surgery offers very satisfying results for patients by providing an overall rejuvenation in the appearance of their eyes and eyelids. Of course, small wrinkles, bags and slight asymmetry may persist after surgery, but these small details are desirable and give a much more natural appearance.
