Upper vs. Lower Eyelid Surgery

April 2, 2015


There are many different parts of the face that make you look much older and more haggard. The area around the eyes, for instance, or the creases around the mouth. Oh, and there’s obviously the furrows on the brow to keep in mind.

You can diet and exercise all you want, some signs of aging will just occur without anything you can do about it. For those cases, you must turn to an Adelaide plastic surgeon. A skilled expert in facial plastic surgery can help you look years younger.

What is cosmetic eyelid surgery?

We mentioned the eyes a moment ago, and that is an area that is especially important to consider. The eyes can convey a lot of emotion and information to others, and sometimes they can work against you. The upper eyelids and the lower eyelids can droop or sag, making you look quite tired an unhappy. There is a surgical procedure to address these problems, thankfully. That procedure is known as cosmetic eyelid surgery.

What can cosmetic eyelid surgery accomplish?

Also known as blepharoplasty and an eyelift, cosmetic eyelid surgery can reduce puffiness of the lower eyelids and can make your upper eyelids look perfectly smooth and youthful. When you visit our Adelaide cosmetic surgery center, we’ll be sure to go over both of these surgeries in detail so you understand how they are performed. Briefly, let’s look at what cosmetic eyelid surgery can do for you.

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery for the Upper Eyelids

When you have sagging upper eyelids, it can make you look much older and can also impair your vision to some degree. To deal with those matters, upper eyelid surgery will remove some excess skin of the upper eyelid. Doing this reduces any sagging or drooping with minimal scarring that is hidden away.

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery for the Lower Eyelids

For the lower eyelids, Adelaide lower eyelid surgery may involve a slight bit of facial liposuction. During this surgery, a little bit of tissue and fat will be removed from the lower eyelid area. Incisions are minimal and hidden so that no one will notice.

Which option for eyelid surgery is best for me?

The best option for you will be determined when you meet with a cosmetic surgeon serving Adelaide for a full consultation. During this consultation, we will assess your needs and create the best possible treatment plan so that those needs can be met.
