On Blepharoplasty with Oculoplastic Surgeon Dr. Maryam Zamani
Blepharoplasty surgery removes excess skin, opening up the eye area to create a more youthful appearance. As we age and our skin loses elasticity, the area around our eyes starts to wrinkle and for some, the skin begins to sag, bulge, and cause the eyes to look tired. Blepharoplasty is one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgeries to correct these eyelid issues.
We spoke to Dr. Maryam Zamani, a leading Oculoplastic Surgeon and Aesthetic Doctor currently practicing in London to learn more about blepharoplasty.
What are some common causes of under eye bag sagging and wrinkling?
How can a patient determine if they are a good candidate for blepharoplasty?
There is upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. (Upper eyelid blepharoplasty) is perfect for those that have excess skin on the upper eyelid that can cause hooding and even diminished peripheral vision.
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is great for those who have sagging or bulging under eye circles. Blepharoplasty treats aged eyes for a more youthful appearance.
You are a good candidate for surgery if you are in good health and have realistic expectations for improvement.
What does the blepharoplasty procedure entail?
What non-surgical methods can be used to achieve similar results as blepharoplasty?
None. Blepharoplasty is the only gold standard to treat excess skin and/or fat from the upper and lower eyelid. There are no other means to remove fat. Hyaluronic acid filler can mask the issue if there is a small amount of fat herniation but is a temporary measure. Skin can be treated with a laser to treat laxity, but blepharoplasty is the gold standard.
What can a patient expect after the procedure? When do they see results?
