(Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery)
Creating a radiant, more alert gaze
Our eyes are the mirror to our soul. Sagging skin, fat deposits and wrinkles around the eyes are all aging signs that affect both women and men making us look tired and worn out, sad, sleepless or even much older than we actually are.
Given the sensitive nature and reduced thickness of the skin in the area around the eyes, especially compared to the rest of the body, this is the one facial feature where wrinkling and sagging becomes visibly more evident quite early on. Upper and lower eyelid surgical procedures can dramatically change the way you look, and consequently feel. A youthful, rested look can be achieved through an upper blepharoplasty operation by addressing issues, such as baggy and drooping upper eyelids, that disturb the natural lid contour and occasionally impair vision. Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris (scleral show), excess or sagging lower eyelid skin and fine wrinkles around the eyes, as well as fatty deposits that appear as puffiness and eye bags, can all be addressed with a lower blepharoplasty procedure.
Blepharoplasty involves removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles, where necessary, to minimise the appearance of wrinkles and bags, as well as removing, or repositioning excess fat to eliminate puffiness. In certain cases, extra fat can be added in the form of fat grafting, in order to address issues relating to contour deformities and hollow eyes.
Careful planning, diligent execution and a touch of artistry are all key ingredients required in the ever so delicate blepharoplasty surgical procedure. Dr. Panayi employs the most advanced blepharoplasty techniques, such as transconjuctival (inner incision) lower blepharoplasty, to ensure minimal or even no scarring. Dr. Panayi is a firm believer in tailored solutions that fit the specific unique characteristics of every patient. In order to achieve this, a range of careful measurements is undertaken before the procedure, together with extensive photo-documentation of the target areas. Furthermore, Dr. Panayi always performs a pre-operative 3D simulation of the operation, so that you have a clear idea of what to expect after the procedure. Once your individual operative plan is completed, it is then followed diligently in the operating room. Performed with extraordinary attention to detail and an unparalleled artistic eye, Dr. Panayi takes special care to ensure minimal scarring and an exceptionally natural-looking end-result.
