The eyes are said to be the windows to the soul. But what do you do when the eyelids are blocking that view? Besides being unseemly, droopy and sagging eyelids can also cause functional problems in vision.
Eyelid surgery can improve the function and appearance of the eyelids. The procedure is called blepharoplasty, and can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. The surgery can treat a number of eyelid issues like:
- Folds in the upper eyelid because of loose skin.
- Sagging of the lower eyelids, such that the white of the eye is visible under the iris.
- Bags, puffiness or fatty deposits.
Eyelid surgery needs to be performed very meticulously. Dr. Vivek Kumar is a celebrated eyelid surgeon in India and according to him, the incisions of eyelid surgery are planned in such a way that they are hidden within the natural folds and are thus invisible.
During the surgery, fat deposits are removed or repositioned, muscles are tightened and excess skin is removed. Eyelid surgery in Delhi has excellent results, with the surgery bringing about not only a change in the eye structure but making the entire face look more alert and younger as well.
|Duration of Procedure:||3-5 hours|
