What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty rejuvenates the eyelid area

In general, most people merely consider that saggy eyelids are a natural symptom of ageing. However, the root causes of the ageing of eyelids vary and include droopiness of all other parts above the eyelids such as scalp, forehead, eyebrows, and eyelids. Thus, blepharoplasty is not simply about cutting the saggy parts of the eyelids but correcting the overall balance of eyelids.

Due to droopy eyelids, eyesight can become deteriorated as droopy eyelids could cover the iris. More wrinkles around eyebrows and the forehead can be created as a patient tries to open his/her eyes wide. Besides, the saggy eyelids cover double eyelid lines as well.

JW’s blepharoplasty is divided into upper blepharoplasty and sub-brow lift.

Upper blepharoplasty is the most common method of drooping eyelids to remove the sagging skin from the eyelids and creating new double eyelid lines.

Upper blepharoplasty is effective in the following cases:
  • Those whose non-incision method is not suitable and has no saggy eyebrows, no blepharoptosis.
  • Those who have the appropriate eyelid skin thickness and existence of double eyelid crease.
  • Those who have appropriate distance between eyebrows and eyelashes, and wrinkles on crow’s feet and the nose bridge are not severe.

  • Those who have comparably bigger eyes, no blepharoptosis.
