Eyelid correction. Upper blepharoplasty.
Upper blepharoplasty not only restores good appearance of the upper eyelids, but their correct functioning as well. The treatment eliminates the excess of lax upper eyelid skin which tends to droop down, thereby affecting vision.
The procedure involves the following steps: an incision is made in the natural lappet of the upper eyelid skin and the excess skin is removed together with the excess fat, if necessary. The incision follows natural skin lines and is closed with very fine stitches, making the surgical scars invisible.
The treatment may involve the risk of excessive scarring and temporary, mild skin irritation lasting for some time after the procedure. Infections and swelling are much rarer, while the inability to close one’s eyes is a very infrequent type of complication.
