Facial procedures with blepharoplasty
A lower blepharoplasty restores soft tissue changes in the lower eyelid. To enhance the results, Dr De Silva combines lower blepharoplasty with other procedures complimentary procedures to give a longer lasting natural looking result. His philosophy is that is better to spend longer time doing the procedure once, than have to undergo additional top up procedures in the near future.
- Skin Resurfacing. The skin around the lower eyelids often has wrinkles, lines and changes in colour as a consequence of accumulated sun damage. Fine wrinkles may be smoothened, skin quality improved, and the skin tightened slightly with laser skin resurfacing techniques. Dr De Silva tailors the type of skin resurfacing to the individual and includes the use of trichloroacetic acid (TCA chemical peel) and controlled laser resurfacing.
- Volume replacement. One of the commonest changes in the lower eyelid is a semi-circular depression, termed the tear trough, between the eyelid and the cheek. This can result in the appearance of a dark circle under the eyes. Dr De Silva customises each individual’s results with focalised fat grafting as an effective technique to rejuvenate the appearance of the lower eyelid at the same time as blepharoplasty. Dr De Silva pioneered this technique in the UK as way of giving patients and enhanced result. The alternative technique may require yearly non-surgical filler treatment.
- Facelift surgery, often ageing changes around the eyelids are mirrored with changes in the jaw line and neck. Dr De Silva commonly completes blepharoplasty with a deep plane facelift to rejuvenation a patient’s appearance.
- Nose reshaping, rhinoplasty, is a common procedure Dr De Silva completes at the same time as blepharoplasty.
