Upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, canthoplasty and canthopexy are procedures performed to obtain periorbital rejuvenation and improve ones tired appearing look. Many factors contribute to the aged appearance of the eyes.
Upper eyelids can lose their shape over time and become droopy hiding the natural arch of your expression. One may lose the crisp upper eyelid crease associated with youth. To correct a sagging upper eyelid, incisions are made where the natural arch and crease of your eye will be. Through this incision, skin, muscle and fat may be removed to create a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Many techniques are available to create a rejuvenated or youthful look of the lower eyelids. The technique chosen will depend on whether there is loose, excess lower eyelid skin and muscle or only prominent lower eyelid fat. Incisions may be placed under the lower eyelid eyelashes or within the underside of the lower eyelid thus without leaving any visible scars. After contouring fat, either by excision or redraping, the loose muscular sling around the eye may be tightened and loose, excess skin may be conservatively removed.
