Surgical procedure which is used to correct ‘droopy’and ‘puffy’eyelids, as well as ‘bags’on the upper and lower eyelid.
‘Puffiness’and ‘droopiness’of the eyelids are most often caused by fatty tissue protruding from the muscles around the eye.
Upper eyelids: A small incision is placed along the middle of the eyelid, through which the muscles and fat are accessed. The fat is removed from all layers of the muscle. Excess skin formed by accumulation of the fat that increased the volume of the eyelid is then removed. Skin is finally sutured in a way that the suture line is placed in a natural fold in the eyelid skin, thus being almost invisible.
Lower eyelids: The incision is placed just under the lower eyelashes or even on the inside of the eyelids. As with upper lids, all the fat that is present is removed. Finally, sutures are placed.
