Blepharoplasty and Asian Blepharoplasty
Attractive eyes are a captivating and appealing feature of the face. They are one of the first things we notice about a healthy and happy person, as the eyes broadcast inner feelings to the outside world. However, with age, appearances alter markedly, and eyes that at one time seemed full of life might instead create the impression of a person who is tired or worn-out. Negative lifestyle choices and genetics also play a role in the apparent rate of ageing. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) presents an opportunity to reverse the unwanted signs of ageing.
Blepharoplasty improves eye function while also providing aesthetic appeal. Some prospective patients suffer to the extent that driving and reading are hampered by droopy eyelids. Fortunately, this can be easily corrected by the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue, while muscles and tendons are also strengthened to create an awake and alert appearance.
Lower eyelids can also droop, revealing bloodshot veins and a degree of disfigurement. Blepharoplasty is the answer for many problems around the eyes, and the surgery is safe for people of all ages.
Some patients suffer from childhood with defects that require surgery, while others are simply the victims of age and gravity taking their toll.
Asian blepharoplasty (double eyelid) surgery is also a very challenging but rewarding surgery sought by Orientals. Recreating the eyelid crease can open the eye and give a more alert and vibrant eye with a crisp new skin crease fold. Dr Valente who has trained extensively with masters in South Korea can guide you through your journey.
Dr Valente can correct the appearance of upper and lower eyelids. A range of modifications can be performed according to individual requirements, including improvements to the eyebrow and nasal-bridge areas. Overall facial structure is firmed, muscle tone is improved, unwanted skin removed, and wrinkles may even disappear. The results of eyelid surgery are long-lasting, although natural forces of gravity will continue to work over time.
Blepharoplasty shouldn’t be confused with cosmetic anti-wrinkle procedures, although improvements to lines and furrows may also be a side-benefit of the eyelid surgery procedure.

Eyes are a complex organ requiring the expertise of a highly qualified practitioner to enhance and beautify without causing any undue harm.
Dr Valente will take into consideration all underlying conditions and previous surgeries that may impact on results. The consultation will examine your skin type and condition, and it’s also important to reveal any medications, other drugs and environmental factors that could be affecting the appearance of your eyes.
The surgery is transformative, but expectations of surgical results should be realistic and followed up by healthy lifestyle habits that don’t stress the eyes or surrounding skin. Dr Valente will determine the best way forward to improve eye function and resolve any deficiencies associated with your eyelids.
Upper and lower eyelid surgery procedure
Prior to the operation, the upper eyelid is marked in order to make incisions that heal invisibly along skin folds. Loose skin, unsightly fat and tissue is then removed. Lower eyelid surgery is performed with an incision mimicking smile creases or your lash line. After excess skin, muscle and fat is removed, fine sutures close the surgical site. In some cases, internal sutures are used.
Eyelid surgery costs vary according to the amount of surgery required, the clinical facility used, and the time taken for the operation. Dr Valente uses only the best equipment and most appropriate surgical procedures, ensuring that your money is well spent on achieving the best possible outcomes.
Recovering from Blepharoplasty surgery
Along with the fine sutures, sterile bandages are usually required to protect the site. Dry or itchy eyes can be counteracted by using prescribed eye drops. There will be a degree of initial bruising or swelling that will diminish during the following days and weeks.
Additional methods for alleviating discomfort include the application of a cold compress, slightly elevating the head during relaxation and sleep, and avoidance of situations such as bright lights or smoky environments that can aggravate the eyes.
Your eyes are a precious and significant feature that deserve the best treatment, and the results of eyelid surgery performed by Dr Valente will have everyone, including yourself, admiring your eyes for years to come.
