North Shore Practice
To correct “hooding” of the upper eyelid, upper blepharoplasty involves an incision within the crease of the upper eyelid where excess skin and fat is removed.
Used to correct skin excess, wrinkles and puffy bags, lower blepharoplasty is done with an incision made close to the lower lash line.
Lower blepharoplasty with an internal incision corrects puffy bags and excess fat under the eyes. An incision is made on the inside of the lower lid, leaving no visible scar. No skin is removed using this type of blepharoplasty.
The eyes form a central element of beauty that we focus upon during normal face-to-face conversation. Unfortunately, they also become an unwanted area of focus as age-related changes start to affect the eye region.
With ageing, various changes occur within the periorbital (eye) region. The skin of the eyelids becomes loose and baggy. This can present as hooded upper eyelids or “bags” under the lower eyelids.
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, addresses the excess baggy skin and fat, as well as the lax muscle that should normally suspend the eyelid in a youthful position.
“I perform blepharoplasty surgery at our North Shore, Norwest and Westmead practices, working to alleviate heavy eyelids and restore a more pleasing appearance for my patients.
On the day, I will precisely measure and plan the symmetrical incisions, before removing the excess skin and fat deposits under either local or general anaesthetic. For some patients, rejuvenation of the lower eyelid region may also require replacement of lost volume with fat grafting in order to restore a youthful contour.
I believe it is crucial to spend time with my patients, educating them on the specifics of each treatment option and truly defining their goals, so that I can provide them with the best results for their unique case.”
