If you are based in Manchester and are considering surgery around your eyes, speak to our experienced and qualified experts in cosmetic eye procedures.
Eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty is one of the most popular requested and functional cosmetic procedures in the North West of England.
It is considered a very effective and safe treatment to improve the look of the eyes and appearance of the face.
The procedure is low risk and offers fairly quick results and low downtime, meaning patients can see the effects of their surgery in a short space of time, without taking much time off work or other activities.
However, each patients is different on a case by case basis depending on the extent of the surgery and the procedure being performed.
For example, some people have larger eye bags than others, or are more prone to lines and wrinkles.
Eyelid surgery helps deal with the contours of both the lower eyelid and upper eyelid areas.
Common complaints from patients unhappy with the appearance of their eyes include; eyebags and crow's feet.
In the upper eyelid region, surgery focuses on the area between the top eyelashes and the eyebrow.
In the lower eyelid region, surgery focuses between the lower eyelashes and the start of the cheek.
Ultimately, the aim with blepharoplasty is to remove excess skin and tissue from these common problem areas
In addition, during the procedure, fat can also be removed or repositioned to provide a more youthful appearance.
Your Eyes and How They Age
Over a person's lifetime, the eyes and eyelids change dramatically.
This can affect how you look to yourself and to others. It also has a big impact on self confidence.
Changes to the skin are often the first signs of ageing.
Skin loses elasticity as fibres and tissue are lost when we get older.
This creates an appearance whereby the skin looks saggy and droops.
Loss in muscle tone around the eye regions can sometimes make this look worse, as muscle and fat becomes redundant.
Another factor that can dramatically change how the eyes look is the movement of fat in the eye sockets. This fat moves forward and can give the appearance of bulging in the regions of both upper and lower eyelids (eye-bags).
Furthermore, changes in the mid-region of the face in combination with the above factors makes the face look older and droopier.
This is because the contour of the lower eye contrasts the upper cheek. Therefore, as the middle of the face droops, the lower eyelid can become disjointed.
One other common factor as to why the eyelids look different with age is losing volume from the face.
When we are younger, our faces are full of volume that appears smooth and contoured.
However, ageing causes lines and wrinkles that makes the face look less contoured and drawn.
That is why eyelid surgery is sometimes carried out in conjunction with other procedures, such as midface surgery or a facelift, to ensure each region of the face compliments each other.
Sagging, drooping and baggy eyes can be caused by exposure to the sun, sunbeds, smoking and in some cases inherited from family members.
