Drooping eyelids make you look exhausted even when you’re not?
Do not worry. At Dr. Kayle Aesthetic Clinic, we have both surgical & non-surgical procedures to address this problem. Here is some more information about both.
LIFTING THE EYELID WITH SURGERY AND NON-INVASIVE METHODS
Blepharoplasty – The Surgical Procedure
This type of eyelid surgery consists of making an incision parallel to the fold of the upper lid to remove excess skin, fat, and muscle. After removal, the incision is closed in a way that leaves no visible markings.
The surgery takes 1.5 hours and can be done using local or general anaesthesia. It is associated with mild bruising and swelling, and the patient can resume normal daily activities within 1 week of the operation.
This is indicated for patients requesting longer-lasting results.
Blepharoplasty – The Non-Surgical Procedures
As the face ages, we suffer from drooping eyelids. This will make the excess upper eyelid skin even more noticeable. Depending on the degree and the age of the patient, non-surgical lifting can usually be achieved through one or more of the following procedures:
- Botox® treatment will help counteract the weakening of a muscle known as orbicularis oculi (a circular muscle around the eye).
- Fillers to the upper eyelid area. This will help to lift the lid of the eye and to give it more volume and better definition.
- Thread lifting of the lid through resorbable sutures.
- Skin tightening devices applied to the upper eyelid and forehead area such as Sublative Rejuvenation and Sublime Rejuvenation treatments.
WHICH EYELID PROCEDURE THE BEST RESULTS?
Most commonly, combining 2 or more of the above treatments would give the best results. A combination of eyelid surgery and non-invasive methods helps remove folds that have formed on the upper eyelid and the fatty deposits that make the lids look puffy. It also eliminates unseemly eye-bags and fine wrinkles that have appeared in the lower lid.
