Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
The upper face is often dramatically rejuvenated by eyelid surgery. Excess upper eyelid skin can cause a tired, hooded appearance. It may be a functional concern with heaviness, problematic at night. Lower eyelid fat pads, deep troughs and excess skin also give an aged appearance.
One of the more delicate aspects of aesthetic facial surgery, blepharoplasty is performed through incisions in eyelid creases; these are usually not visible. A number of lower eyelid procedures are performed through an internal approach which leaves no external scar. This is an approach used regularly in Tim Hewitt’s Craniofacial Practice.
