Shu Cosmetic Surgery offers eyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty. The surgery is designed to improve the appearance and/or function of the eyelids and has become one of the most sought-after facial plastic surgery procedures.
Blepharoplasty corrects drooping upper lids and puffy bags below the eyes by removing fat and excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids, making you look younger and fresher. In addition, this procedure can add an upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes and can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures, such as a mini facelift or mini brow-lift. Blepharoplasty, however, does not remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under the eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows.
For upper eyelid surgery, excess skin and fat are removed through a tiny incision hidden within the natural fold of the eyelid. Because the incision follows the natural contour of the eyelid, it will be well camouflaged after healing.
For lower lid surgery, the incision is typically hidden below the lower lashes. Through this incision, excess skin, muscle and fat are removed or redistributed. Other adjustments such as canthopexy (eyelid tightening) may be done to correct special problems, such as muscle laxity.
