Removal of excessive skin on eyelids, plastic surgery of eyelids in Kiev
After surgery eyelids do not overhang any longer and skin under eyes becomes smooth and resilient.
Eyes as a mirror of soul reflect our inner world and when they shine everybody around believes that You are a healthy person full of energy. However, if there are dark circles or “bags” under eyes and upper eyelid loos overhung, You will immediately have a look of a tired unfortunate person. In the latter case, the most efficient method of resolving the problem is blepharoplasty (plastic surgery of eyelids).
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty or plastic surgery of eyelids is an operation for removal of excessive fatty tissue and overhung flabby skin of the upper eyelid as well as removal of “fatty bags” from under eyes. The following problems can be solved with the help of eyelids plastic surgery:
- removal of excessive skin and fatty tissue around eyelids;
- reduction of signs of age-related changes;
- removal of congenital or acquired defects of eyelids;
- correction of palpebral fissure and shape of eyes.
At what age one can do plastic surgery of eyelids?
The main objective of blepharoplasty is improvement of appearance of a patient, and therefore there is no strict age restriction. Most of people do plastic surgery of eyelids in order to remove signs of ageing. However, this surgery may also significantly improve appearance of young people as well.
Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Such surgical operation helps to remover overhanging of upper eyelid. Skin fissure begins within the natural fold next to internal corner of the eye and goes slightly beyond the boundary of outer corner of the eye into the area of the so-called “crow’s feet”. With the help of such incision, excessive skin and fat are removed. When cured, the incision is fully covered in the fold of upper eyelids.
Classic blepharoplasty is done with excision of skin flap of 8 mm on top and 2 mm below and repair of hernias
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Plastic surgery of lower eyelids helps to remove “bags” from under eyes, edemas and hernias. Incision of skin runs right under eyelashes of lower eyelid. Excessive skin and fatty tissue are removed through it. Otherwise, fatty tissue under eyes can be redistributed for leveling of irregularities and dips. Also, blepharoplasty of lower eyelids includes such manipulations as muscular lift, canthoplasty (change of fissure of eyes) or canthopexy (lifting of corners of eyes, removal of eversion of lower eyelids).
Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is applied in case of presence of fat hernias and absence of excessive skin. Such surgery is intended for young people and people with good skin tonicity. Incision is done inside of lower eyelid. This technique does not imply a transcutaneous incision; however, it cannot be used for removal of excessive skin. In addition, if there is any excessive skin, application of this technique will cause an increase of the number of wrinkles because there is no skin lift in this technique. Laser polishing or chemical peeling is often applied together with this technique for the purpose of reduction of small wrinkles around eyes.
Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is technically less complicated compared to transcutaneous one ,therefore it can hardly be referred to as a high-tech operation as it is announced in unfair advertising. Often transconjunctival blepharoplasty is advertised as “plastic surgery with no incisions”, which cannot be real as there is an incision anyway.
