What is blepharoplasty?
The eyes are the jewel of the body and the window to the soul – but as we age, puffy eyes, dark circles, excess skin and bags under the eyes become problematic – as tissue that supports the eyelids stretches and weakens.
During a blepharoplasty procedure, Géniale’s experienced cosmetic physicians cut along the creases of the eyelids to trim sagging skin and muscle and remove excess fat.
Once the excess tissue is removed, our surgeons join the skin with minuscule stitches.
Some people have all four eyelids operated on during the procedure with the top eyelid incisions generally made in the natural creases of the eyelid.
The invisible incisions for the lower eyelid are made just below the eyelashes or inside the inner surface of the eyelid.
Generally, the entire procedure takes 1-2 hours and is walk-in, walk-out surgery.
A blepharoplasty procedure aims to freshen up tired-looking eyes and to leave patients with a more youthful, wide-awake look.
