The aesthetic and cosmetic aspects of eyelid changes are often apparent and most important to the individual. These need to be addressed with an understanding of visual function and the delicate, complex and inter-connected anatomy of the eyelids, face and orbit. Mr Uddin is passionate about providing the best, most suitable treatment promptly, so that his patients can have an improved quality of life and feel better about themselves.
Why choose an oculoplastic surgeon for eyelid conditions?
Oculoplastic surgeons are best placed to assess, diagnose and plan for the needs of eyelid and periocular conditions, placing emphasis on eye function, as well as aesthetics. Oculoplastic surgeons train as ophthalmologists (general care of the eye) and then undertake further training in eyelid, facial and orbital aspects of eyelid problems and ageing. Oculoplastic surgeons understand the special periocular anatomical and functional relationships of structures in this area of the face.
- A blepharoplasty is an operation to rejuvenate the eyelids and in some cases to improve vision where excess skin is obscuring it.
- It may involve removal of excess eyelid skin.
- Depending on an individual the muscle or fat underlying the skin may also be removed or repositioned.
- In addition the lower lid may be tightened surgically.
- The procedure can be carried out in the upper or lower eyelid.
