Eyelid Surgery in Limassol | Dr. Stavros Economou Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon in Limassol, Cyprus

Being the most expressive feature of our face the eyes convey all of our emotions in such subtle ways that makes eyelid surgery one of the most challenging and rewarding procedures in plastic surgery. It is often performed for excess skin of the upper eyelid and fat bulging of the lower eyelid but most often a combination.

Changes around the eyes can often be frustrating, as they make us look tired or sad when in reality we feel just fine. Dr. Economou uses refined techniques that address these changes in subtle ways giving you a fresh and relaxed expression while maintaining a natural look.

Blepharoplasty (eye lift)

One of the first features to show signs of aging are the eyes. Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) helps to improve the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids by removing excess fat and redundant eyelid skin.

If you suffer from extra skin that creates folds in the upper lids, fat bags, excess skin and wrinkles in the lower eyelid area, or bags under the eyes, you may be a candidate for eyelid surgery in Limassol.

A series of other procedures may be combined with your eyelid surgery to enhance your outcome. Dr. Economou could help you decide on the ideal treatments suited for you.

Eye surgery for men

In a modern and competitive working environment the need to look fresh and sharp is not confined to women. As a result men, often seek a consultation for eyelid surgery.

After discussing each individual requirements for any given patient, Dr. Economou will then determine the kind of eyelid procedure to match those needs.

Benefits of having eyelid surgery by Dr. Economou may include:

  • Fresh look
  • Softening of the facial expression
  • Less tired look
  • Younger appearance
  • Reduction of lower eyelid wrinkles
  • Reduction of skin sagging and under the eye bags

What makes a good candidate for eyelid surgery?

Firstly patients that would benefit the most from a eyelid surgery in Limassol are those with extra eyelid skin, wrinkling and bags under the eyes. Secondly, as with any operation, it is important that, you are doing this for yourself. Therefore you should not do it to please someone else or to meet up to their expectations.

As a result, a good candidate for most aesthetic procedures is a person that is in good general health, with no significant medical history. Furthermore, ideally these patients should be non-smokers, or willing to quit prior to surgery.

In addition they should be in a good and stable mental state. With no recent major changes in their personal life that can affect their decision-making abilities. It is also helpful to have supportive social and family environments. Finally have a clear and realistic understanding that surgery can offer improvements to ones appearance and not perfection.

In conclusion a number of other procedures may compliment your facelift, including soft tissue fillers, fat transfer, resurfacing techniques, and botulinum toxin injections.
