Blepharoplasty

A blepharoplasty is a procedure that is associated with removal of the skin from the upper eyelids and removal of the fat from the lower eyelids. The word "bleph" implies eyelids. A blepharoplasty is normally done by identifying the crease on either upper eyelids and then marking the redundant skin to be removed. Of course, this must also take in to consideration the weight of the tissues that may be added by the eyebrows. Once the excess tissue is removed, the eyelid crease is much more visible, the person can see much better and appears to have much more wide-open eyes. There is a distinct difference between the eyelid crease and the amount of tissue to be removed in a man and a woman. In a man's eyes we expect to have a small amount of residual tissue on the upper eyelids and a very small eyelid crease. In a woman, we perceive beauty as having deep-set eyes and a very large crease on which makeup may be applied. See the other information on eyebrows to also learn about the correct structural appearance of the eyebrows.
