Eyelift Surgery on the Up
on: November 9, 2009, 9:29 am
The Hospital Group has reported that the popularity of an
upper eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) has been on the increase over the
past 5 years, with 62% more patients opting for this surgery.
The typical eyelift surgery patient has drooping layers of skin and deep wrinkles on the eyelids. These
lead to a tired and a sad looking appearance. This may run in families and is common
in both men and women.
During this procedure a curved incision is made across the natural crease of the
skin and excess fat and tissue is removed to lift and open up the eye area.
A spokesperson for The Hospital Group, said: “Ageing is an issue which more and more
people, both men and women, are keen to combat. Eye-lid surgery opens out the eyes
and softens lines for a more youthful look.”
This common plastic surgery procedure, to correct heavy, saggy or tired-looking eyelids is
called upper blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat in the
eyelids to provide tauter skin and a fresher looking eye area.
After the procedure, this patient's eyes and face look much brighter and more
youthful without the eye lids. This patient had both upper and lower blepharoplasty
(i.e. eyelids and eyebag removal).
