Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
Beautiful, bright and youthful eyes captivate and enchant. To this end, the curving shape of the eye opening, the smooth skin of the eyelids, the integrity of the deeper tissues and the position and prominence of the brows form a complex relationship. With time, the sparkle may remain but changes to the skin, the orbital tissues and muscles can result in excessive skin, unsightly wrinkles and bulging eye-bags.
Your consultation with a highly experienced surgeon at Bristol Plastic Surgery will provide you with an analysis and a logical treatment path that will go some way to restoring the magic. The elements that contribute to your eyelid appearance will be explained and the possible options will be outlined. Your surgeon’s personal understanding of the aesthetics of the eye and its underlying anatomy will provide you with the information you need.
The eyelid skin is delicate and the muscles of the orbit are not very strong so it is important to understand that the effects of eyelid surgery are confined to the orbit. While excess skin and the consequent shadowing can be removed, the skin cannot be restored line-freerlier line free state. Other important structures around the eye, such as the brow and the cheek, need to be addressed separately. If it is required, you will be advised as to the contribution a facelift or a brow lift might make.
