Oftentimes, disfigurations, deformities, and defects of the eyelids calls for the need for Blepharoplasty in Sydney. Over the years, Sydney has experienced tremendous breakthrough in the field of cosmetic surgery. Blepharoplasty and thread lift are the major landmarks in cosmetic medicine. Both procedures are necessary in the modification or correction (or combination of both) of the lower and upper eyelids, the surrounding eyebrow tissues, the upper nasal-bridge area, as well as the upper portions of the cheeks.
The two procedures resolve the functional and cosmetic problems of the face especially the eyebrows and the cheek areas. The following are the advantages of the two cosmetic procedures:
• They aim at restoring the normal functioning of affected eyelid(s)
• They restore the aesthetics of the eye-region of the face
• They eliminate excess skin and fat tissues from the eyelid(s)
• They smoothens the underlying eye muscles
• They tighten the supporting structures by resecting and re-draping excess fat of the retroseptal area of the eye, especially the sockets
• They produce a smooth anatomic appeal right from the lower eyelid to the cheeks
Thread lift is a specialized procedure that helps to regenerate, to rejuvenate, and to improve the structure of the face. It is similar to a surgical facelift but no surgical incision is required. The procedure involves the use of specialized soluble PDO (polydioxanone) threads that are introduced into the skin using very fine needles to lift the underlying tissues and muscles in order to improve the skin texture. The soluble PDO thread stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and elastin in the skin thereby keeping the skin look plump and youthful always.
Oftentimes, excess skin and fat on upper eyelid(s) can sometimes block vision, exhibit aged appearance, cause puffiness or create a heavy looking eyelid. Upper blepharoplasty is done to remove excess skin and fat so as to improve vision and add aesthetic appeal. Lower blepharoplasty is done to improve the shape of lower eyelid(s) by tightening the eyelid, removing excess skin, wrinkles and fat or adding fat to improve a “hollowed” appearance. It is also done to correct sagging and droopiness of lower eyelids.
In conclusion, blepharoplasty and thread lift procedures are safe and have limited potential risks and complications. Some of the few risks include scarring, infection, bleeding, dry eyes and inability to close the eyes. However, the advancement in modern technology and use of sophisticated equipment reduces such complications almost to zero.
