ⓘ Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is the plastic surgery operation for correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids, and for aesthetically modifying the eye region of the face. With the excision and the removal, or the repositioning of excess tissues, such as skin and adipocyte fat, and the reinforcement of the corresponding muscle and tendon tissues, the blepharoplasty procedure resolves functional and cosmetic problems of the periorbita, which is the area from the eyebrow to the upper portion of the cheek. The procedure is more common among women, who accounted for approximately 85% of blepharoplasty procedures in 2014 in the US and 88% of such procedures in the UK.

The operative goals of a blepharoplastic procedure are the restoration of normal functioning of the affected eyelids and restoring the aesthetics of the eye region of the face, which is accomplished by removing excess skin from the eyelids, smoothing the underlying eye muscles, tightening the supporting structures, resected and re-draping the excess fat of the retroseptal area of the eye, in order to produce a smooth anatomic transition from the lower eyelid to the cheek.

With eyes, the usual correction or modification or both of the upper and lower eyelids and surrounding tissues of the eyebrows, the upper nasal-bridge and upper cheeks, which are achieved by modifying the periosteal coverings of the facial bones that form the orbit of the eye socket. The periosteum consists of two layers of connective tissue that covers the bones of the human body:

  • The external layer of networks of dense, connective tissues with blood vessels, and.
  • The internal, deep layer of collagenous bundles composed of spindle-shaped cells of connective tissue, and a network of thin, elastic fibres.
