Eyelid surgery can be used to achieve both medical and cosmetic benefits. In addition to restoring function and appearance after trauma and correcting vision problems caused by anatomical changes, eyelid surgery is also undertaken from a cosmetic point of view to improve an aged
appearance, or hooded heaviness.
By addressing fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, and under-eye bags that can make you look tired and older, blepharoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure to repair and enhance the eyelid region. Targeted areas include the upper and lower eyelids, as well as the hollows beneath the eyes and the tear troughs. These cosmetic concerns can be corrected separately or in tandem depending on the patient’s desired goal.
Sun exposure, genetics, and the ageing process all have an impact on the skin around eyes over time. The muscles and supportive tissues around the eyes start to weaken with age, leading to a droopy appearance, under-eye bags, fat loss and shifting, deep grooves, and dark circles. In addition, the delicate skin around the eyes loses elasticity and resiliency which contributes to sagging and wrinkling. Cosmetic eyelid surgery helps to restore a youthful appearance to the eyelid area by improving a variety of common issues and concerns, and provides an overall rejuvenating effect that extends to the entire face.
blepharoplasty, or as it is commonly called an eyelid reduction/lift, is used to reconstruct the upper eyelid or lower eyelid. The surgery repairs and restores the appearance of the skin, muscles and fat around the eye as needed. Mr Rohit Seth at Signature Clinic will carefully examine each patient’s eyelid area to determine the optimum treatment plan to achieve the most natural-looking and lasting results. Mr Seth and our surgeons use a variety of techniques to restore a more youthful appearance for men and women by:
- Precisely removing excess skin
- Expertly tightening muscles
- Removing, adding, or repositioning fat
Regardless of the specific techniques used, the ultimate result is a refreshed, rejuvenated more youthful appearance. Our aesthetic goals strives for natural-looking outcomes that will make people wonder if you just got back from vacation—not if you’ve had something “done.”
At Signature Clinic we are proud to announce that we have one of the few PlexR machines in Glasgow. PlexR works by sublimating the skin, when you sublimate you turn a solid-gas without the liquid phase, this means the excess skin is turned to dead tissue/scab, which will fall off 1-2 weeks post procedure. This treatment is an amazing alternative for those who do not wish to go for the surgical options, or are unable to. Some patients won’t be eligible for PlexR due to the extent of the excess eyelid, therefore we strongly suggest booking a complementary consultation.
