|Would this procedure be suitable for me?||A blepahroplasty is suitable for people who do not like the appearance of their upper and lower eyelids or lower “fat bags”.|
|How is the procedure performed?||Excess skin and fat is removed from the upper eyelid and a new crease is created, giving the impression the eyes are larger. In most cases, fat from below the eye is removed through an incision inside the lower eyelid. No external scars are usually made, however people with a big skin excess may require an external excision. This procedure can help to improve the “tired look”.|
