Eyes are the windows to the soul. Ageing as a process takes a toll on our eyes as well. This can make the eyes look tired and older. It impacts different people differently. Upper eyelids might begin to sag or have a hooded appearance over time. Whereas, with lower eyelids, the undereye bags and fine lines and wrinkles can start to appear. Based on your aesthetic needs, the surgeon can recommend an upper or a lower eyelid blepharoplasty Toronto. This cosmetic procedure can also be performed on both eyelids together. If you want to say goodbye to the tired and sagging appearance of your eyes, blepharoplasty is a procedure to consider. We are here to tell you all about it.

What happens during blepharoplasty?

Just like every cosmetic procedure, blepharoplasty is also something that is designed as per the anatomy and requirement of the patient. For the surgery, the patient is put under general anaesthesia. Different techniques are followed for the upper and lower eyelid.

Upper Eyelid: In the upper eyelid blepharoplasty, the incisions are made incised the eyelid crease or the lower lash line which allows the incision to be hidden. Through the incision, a small amount of tissue is removed. This is done to smoothen and recontour the lids. During the procedure, a small amount of fat might be removed or repositioned as well. After this, the incisions are closed.

Lower eyelid: Two main approaches are followed in lower eyelid blepharoplasty. The technique chosen is dependent on the concern being targeted. When there is the presence of undereye bags in young patients with firm and elastic lower eyelids, the transconjunctival approach is used. In this technique, a small incision is made inside the lid, allowing the surgeon to remove the fat. There is no visible scarring and helps to smoothen out the under-eye bags. When there is an appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, the subciliary approach is followed. In this approach, the incision is made close to the lower eyelashes, allowing the excess loose skin to be trimmed away. Once the incision has healed, the scarring becomes nearly invisible.

Can blepharoplasty permanently remove wrinkles?

Most people choose to undergo the procedure to fight the signs of ageing. Blepharoplasty can tighten the skin around the lower eyelids and reduce eye bags. Being an invasive procedure it can help to achieve long-lasting results. As the skin around the eyes is delicate, ageing will eventually take its toll again. One might experience signs of skin laxity. Though blepharoplasty can help achieve long-lasting results, the results aren’t permanent.
