In this age of selfies and mask-wearing, it’s all about our eyes. It’s no surprise: as the skin on our eyelids is the thinnest on our body, it’s susceptible to a whole host of problems, from wrinkles and dark circles to crow’s feet.
Here, aesthetic doctors and salons in Singapore recommend their most popular anti-ageing eye treatments. Whether it’s spending an hour on an eye treatment at a spa or something a little longer-lasting – like a minor nip and tuck to permanently remove that extra baggage – we’ve got you covered.
W Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
Some call it eyelid surgery or lower blepharoplasty. We call it eyelid rejuvenation, especially for the more mature missus. Whatever it is, this minor surgical procedure – which focuses on recontouring the lower eyelids – could help rejuvenate those eyes in a blink, especially if your undereye bags are prominent.
Dr Wong Chin Ho of W Aesthetic is obsessed about fixing eyebags, and has written several blog posts on the subject over the years. “When I was in training, a senior plastic surgeon made a very intriguing remark to me. He said, ‘Even with complete elimination of the eyebags, patients still looked tired and listless.’ We now know that to acheive true lower eyelid rejuvenation, in addition to removing the eyebags, smoothening the tear trough – or the deep crease between the lower eyelid and upper cheek – and filling the area below the trough is critical to achieve a harmonious rejuvenation of the lower eyelid. After years of research, the technique to predictably achieve this is now available.”
There are two main approaches to treating the lower eyelid bags. The scarless method – yes, scarless! – entails a small incision behind the lower eyelid to remove any excess eyelid bags. This method isn’t only effective in eliminating extra baggage, but it also allows patients to be up and about almost immediately, without having any external skin incisions.
