No excuse for looking older with Scarless Eyelid Surgery

  • Tuesday October 10, 2006 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

    This is a rather peculiar problem – you look tired but aren’t.  Even worse is you look older when in fact you are still thirtysomething.  

    So the “droopy eyes” is not a mesmerizing look after all.  When a person starts to look constantly tired and older than actually are – it’s usually in the eyes.  Sagging, baggy eyelids can obscure a person’s best stare, and it becomes unpleasant once the eyelids become more noticeable than the eyes.    

    There are cosmetic surgery clinics offering non-surgical lifting of the eyelids through radio frequency lifting.  But a way much younger appearance can be obtained through blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery.

    The latest technique to come by and certainly most welcome is ‘Scarless Eyelid Surgery’.  The very procedure should explain: no visible scarring because there are no incisions on the outside, no sutures on the outside.  

    Problems in the upper eyelid are corrected by removing of the extra eyelid skin as well as the excess fat deposits.  The extra skin is then trimmed.  The incision is closed with ultra-fine sutures. A thin line in the crease of the upper eyelid where the incision is placed may initially appear but will eventually fade.    

    Depending on the patient, the eyelid surgery usually takes approximately one hour, which includes both the upper and lower eyelids.  Women can begin wearing eye makeup in three to five days, and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days.

    With the development of scarless eyelid surgery, a growing number of younger patients in their 30’s seek treatment to correct the baggy eyelids before it gets real ugly.  Women who undergo eyelid surgery outnumber men three to one, however eyelid surgery is the second most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedure sought by men.
