It's often said the eyes are the gateway to one's soul.
As primal beings, we instinctively look into a person's eyes to assess them - Open yourself to the world.
BLEPHAROPLASTY (Eye lifts or eyelid reduction surgery)
At Concept Cosmetic Medicine we use the Fraxel REPAIR laser scalpel to perform skin only Blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is also commonly known as an eye lift or eyelid reduction surgery.
Excess upper eyelid skin can make you look older, and can even lead to restricted vision by physically blocking the eye. Some people can also have an excess of fatty tissue that makes the eye seem ‘puffy’, and this is when Blepharoplasty can be performed.
Excess fat and drooping skin under the eyes (‘bags’) can make a person look permanently tired and aged. When the lower eye lid droops significantly, the delicate ‘white’ of the eye can be expose which can cause discomfort and pain.
Both Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty remove the excess skin and/or fat deposits and help to restore firm, healthy skin around your eyes, giving you a revitalised, more youthful expression.
Contouring of the skin to the upper and lower eyelid will also produce a more youthful appearance to the lower forehead and brow region as well as to the cheek and cheekbone region.
This allows us to perform eyelid reductions without any need for hospitalisation or General Anaesthetic. Blepharoplasty is very delicate surgery, and your commitment to following all the instructions for post-surgery care will help ensure the best result.
By limiting the procedure to skin only, we ensure a natural look. We also avoid the possibilities of serious complications that a formal surgery has to contend with.
This involves the removal of excess skin from the lower eyelid. The amount of skin to be removed is assessed by a “pinch test”. Thus the name of the procedure. It is the removal of skin only and so leaves the eyelid and its muscles all untouched.
This procedure is done with a resurfacing laser (Erbium or CO2). It tightens and rejuvenates the eyelid skin so that skin bags and "creping" are minimised.
