What is Blepharoplasty?
Do you fear the effects of aging when you realize eye-bags and wrinkles around your eyes are now starting to appear? Or do you have small and uneven eyes since birth and you are unhappy with them? Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid lift is just the right treatment for you. It is the plastic surgery performed to correct any deformity at the eyelids, resulting in more aesthetically-pleasing eyelids or eyes.

1. Upper Eyelid: Often droops due to excess muscle, fat or wrinkles. This often make one seems angry or lazy.
2. Lower Eyelid: Often forms ‘bags’ under the eye, resulting in an unpleasant look. This often make one seems tired or lack of sleep.
1. Anaesthesia is administered.
