Double Eyelid Surgery Before and After
What is Double Eyelid Surgery?
Double eyelid surgery, also know as blepharoplasty, is a type of plastic surgery where creases in the upper eyelids are formed. The operation is commonly utilized when correcting defects, and deformities of the eyelids. Additionally, double eyelid surgery can be performed for aesthetic purposes.
The procedure is performed by eliminating excess skin from the eyelids. Also, smoothing underlying muscles, repurposing excess fat, and tightening of the surrounding tissue will occur. The final result will be a more uniform, more even look which allows for a greater field of vision. Additionally, double eyelid surgery may grant the appearance of larger, more welcoming eyes and facial features.
Goals of Double Eyelid Procedures
The operative goal of double eyelid surgery can be twofold. First off, the most primary goal is to restore the functioning of the affected eyelid or eyelids. This may also include reshaping the eyelid to allow proper vision for a patient suffering from peripheral vision degradation. Frequently, older patients may find this necessary as the skin continues to droop with age. Patients whose eyelids brush against the cornea may also benefit from blepharoplasty.
Additionally, you may find yourself with mismatched eyelids. One may be a double eyelid while the other does not match up. Just like uneven breasts, your eyelid may need to be reshaped. Doing so will offer a more uniform appearance. Double eyelid surgery can help solve this issue and get your eyes to match up; increasing confidence in your look and aesthetic.
Secondly and more commonly, patients may choose to have double eyelid surgery purely for cosmetic reasons. These may include enlarging of the eye region, allowing for greater makeup options, to remove the appearance of bagginess, wrinkles, bulges, and more.
Finally, the procedure has become common in Asian communities. Most patients of Asian descent are born with single eyelids. Some patients may find their single eyelids to be unattractive. Many patients feel that accentuation of the eyelids allows for better framing of the face and offers a more expressive, open appearance.
Before & After Double Eyelid Surgery
As with all facial plastic surgery, good health and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Blepharoplasty removes the excess fat, muscle, and skin from both upper and lower lids. The results can be a refreshed appearance, with a younger, firmer, more evenly-framed appearance.
