"Double eyelid surgery is a popular procedure where precise suturing methods are used to create an eyelid fold."
Double eyelid surgery is one way of making the eyes look bigger. About 50% of the Asian population is born without a double eyelid.
Patients of Asian descent occasionally experience early onset subtle ptosis (Drooping eyelid) that is frequently missed due to the overhanging eyelid skin that masks it.
"Immediately following surgery, patients report that the heaviness has been lifted and the opening of the eyelid is now effortless"
Drooping eyelid or Ptosis is common and caused by the progressive laxity of muscles that lift the eyelid. With age, the muscle that opens the upper eyelid stretches and loses its elasticity.
Frequent rubbing of eyes, use of contact lenses, cataract operation, repeated episodes of eyelid swelling due to allergies, and eyelid trauma all cause overstretching of the levator muscle.
Eyelid skin cancers are very common and account for up to 10% of all skin cancers. It is imperative they are detected and treated in time.
Eyelid skin cancer treatment requires a very high standard of competency in early detection, complete excision and meticulous reconstruction for the best possible outcome.
“ Youthful blending of the eyelid and cheek junction for rejuvenation of the lower eyelid and mid-face area. ”
Signs of ageing around the lower eyelid area are the most common reasons for cosmetic surgery consultation. Excess skin, thin skin, eye bags, dark circles under eyes, tear trough deformity, and lines under the eyes are all concerns for which patients seek a natural looking solution.
Lower eyelid surgery (or blepharoplasty) addresses these concerns by rejuvenating the eyes and mid-face.
“ Restore the eye shadow space for a clean, crisp and refreshed look ”
Upper Eyelid Surgery is among the top 5 most common Plastic Surgery operations. It reverses the signs of ageing caused by excess and thinning skin following the volume loss that comes with ageing.
Cosmetic surgery of the upper eyelid is also known as Blepharoplasty, Bleph, Eyelid Reduction or Eye Lift surgery.
“ Precise surgical removal of yellow spots delivers a clear successful outcome.”
Yellow Spots on the eyelid are known as Xanthelasma. Yellow spots or lumps are a common type of xanthoma that appears on the eyelids; the condition is almost twice as common in females. Yellow Spots most commonly occur on the upper eyelid, however, may appear on the lower.
While patients report their main concern to be aesthetic, it is important to rule out any underlying medical condition.
“ Signs of ageing start around the eyes and wrinkles are most common around the eyelids.”
Wrinkles are formed as a result of muscle activity and are associated with ageing because as we age, skin loses collagen and becomes progressively thinner.
Loss of volume (fat and bone) leaves the skin unsupported and more prone to gravitational forces from muscle activity which leads to the subsequent development of wrinkles.
“ This is one of the first areas to show signs of ageing due to loss of volume around a bony structure. ”
Skin stretches over the hollow forcing it to become more prominent and often pigmented in appearance. The concern may be amplified when skin above the dark circle bulges due to fat produced by the body to compensate for loss of volume.
Even when daylight illuminates the convexity and makes it look lighter, the concave dark circle remains a shadow, which can add years to appearance.
“ Eyelids can be surgically rejuvenated to create a very pleasant lower eyelid contour with a refreshed look. ”
Baggy or puffy eyelids are due to ageing of the bony eye socket and soft tissue changes of the cheek and midface. Several changes are responsible for this condition, including enlargement of the eye socket due to age.
Restoring the volume of the cheek and the midface by using fat transfer, dermal fillers or cheek implants will enhance the effect.
The tear trough is a well-defined anatomical structure located below the lower eyelid and is distinct from the lid cheek junction. The tear trough extends outwards from the medial canthal measurement and stops at the midpupillary line. Deepening of the tear trough with age results in visible deep under eye hollows.
Ectropion is the turning out of the eyelid (usually the lower eyelid) so that the inner surface is exposed. It can be due to age, previous trauma, previous surgery or scarring. Excessive tearing may contribute to discomfort. Eyelid surgery is used to tighten the muscles that hold the eyelids in place and can be performed with local anesthetic.
Additional support by fat grafting the midface is often a beneficial option as well.
