The upper eyelids are the initial places of the face to show signs of ageing. The excess skin that hangs over the upper eyelashes could make someone appear and feel older than they actually are. The solution to this problem is an easy procedure, known as an eyelid lift, also known as the blepharoplasty procedure, which in many cases is regarded as cosmetic.
The upper eyelid lift surgery is among the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures that we offer in our clinic. This is due to the fact that not only is the aging of eyelids among the most frequently reported complaints however, the procedure is also among the most simple and affordable cosmetic procedures.
The most common reason for the eyelid lifting is dermatochalasis in the upper lid, also known as hangy and droopy lid skin. The result is a tired, sad looking and aged appearance. If the skin hanging is severe enough to hinder vision your health insurance might often cover the surgery but this is not a common scenario and may require a trip to an ophthalmologist in order to establish that they are covered.
Candidates for surgery who are suitable are healthy individuals with no experience of dry or irritated eyes, or any other eye diseases. The procedure can be completed fairly quickly, taking less than 30 minutes with experienced hands.
