Surgical correction of upper eyelids

Upper eyelid plastic surgery (blepharoplasty) involves the surgical correction of excess skin. The area around the upper eyelid often stretches excessively. Most often it is the result of skin aging, but may also have a genetic basis. It should be noted that the skin in this part of the face is very thin, delicate and prone to stretching. Excess body fat, unsightly creases on the skin make the face look tired and much older.

Blefaroplasty treatment allows you to restore proper tension around the eyes, restore youthful and healthy appearance, as well as the correct contour and shape of the eyelids. More and more women and men are choosing this procedure for reasons not only aesthetic, but also to eliminate many ailments, such as: eye fatigue, heavy eyelids, headaches and even limiting the field of vision.
