As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes . Blepharoplasty is a procedure which repairs these problems. Our eyes are the window to our soul!

Blepharoplasty Procedure

This technique uses ClinicaJoia’s state of the art carbon dioxide laser to correct excess skin on the upper and lower eyelids, which make the face look older and tired. This treatment can be done at any age. It is a quick procedure performed under local anaesthetic with uneventful recovery and permanent results. The technique can be performed along side other cosmetic procedures aimed at removing facial wrinkles or loose skin. The use of the laser ensures extreme cutting precision and minimal to no bruising on recovery. Look more alert with fresher and younger eyes!

The Goal

To restore a smooth, youthful and natural well-rested look to eyes that droop, bag or have sagging skin due to aging or genetics. The pre-operative consultation is where we check your tear production, review your health, finalize the details of your procedures, order appropriate tests, prescribe medications, discuss your aftercare and answer any questions you may have.

Upper Blepharoplasty

Is used to remove excess skin or ptosis (drooping) on the upper eyelid due to aging or genetics. The incision follows the crease of the eyelid where, once healed, the scar becomes practically invisible. About 20% of patients also need to have some fat taken away as well, while another 15% need fat added. The reason for this latter maneuver is to restore a youthful fullness to an otherwise hollow upper eyelid socket.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Is used to remove excess skin and, where necessary, pockets of fat under the eyes due to aging. The incision follows the lower lash line where it heals invisibly. There is also an incision behind the lower eyelid through which the surgeon can remove any excess fat. About 30 % of patients will need to get the fat “bags” reduced. Fat can be carefully transferred to the “hollows” below the eye to produce a smooth transition from the lower eyelid onto the upper cheek.
