Surgical technique for blepharoplasty
During eyelid surgery, depending on the nature of the surgery, some form of anesthesia will be used. This cosmetic procedure can repair the top eyelid, on the bottom eyelid, or a blend of both treatments at once.
Upper eyelid surgery assists in reducing the excess of skin that impairs vision and attains a more flattering look. The incision point may be placed along the natural crease to remove skin and tissue.
Lower blepharoplasty treats bulging, bloated skin beneath the lower lid. In most cases, an incision is made below the lash line to remove fat surgically, and the skin is gently lifted to create a flatter, smoother look. Sometimes, a nonsurgical laser procedure may be performed to help with discoloration, while injectable fillers can add volume and smoothness if needed.
A quad lift combines both the upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures. It will utilize the techniques described above to create a younger-looking profile to the eyes. Specific details of this method can be discussed during your initial consultation, as it may not be right for everyone.
