Loose or excess skin around the eyes, and saggy eyelids are a common sign of aging. Although this can sometimes lead to a lack of self-confidence, excessive loose skin or sagging can also interfere with the field of vision in more extreme cases.
At Optegra, we understand that each of our patients has different eye health needs, which is why we offer cosmetic eyelid surgery to treat aging eyelids if you suit certain criteria.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a procedure in which unwanted skin and fat around the upper and lower eyelids is removed, resulting in a more youthful appearance. It’s a relatively simple and straightforward surgical procedure, and can make a huge difference both to your self-confidence and to your vision.
As a cosmetic procedure, one of our leading eye health specialists will identify if you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty. You may be a good candidate if you match the following:
- You have excess skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids
- You have loose skin hanging over the edge of the upper eyelids
- Loose skin is impairing your vision
- You have a ‘crepe paper’ type of wrinkles
- You have bags and dark circles under your eyes
- You don’t mind taking approximately a week off work for recovery
As every patient is different, potential candidates will need to have an in-depth consultation with an oculoplastic surgeon who will make the final decision. This means your surgery is tailored to suit your exact needs.
To find out if you’re suitable for this procedure, simply book a consultation today. The surgeon you speak to will also be the one to carry out the procedure, so you’ll be in safe hands from the moment you call us to your comprehensive aftercare service post-op.
