What is an Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure designed to improve the appearance or function of the eyelids.

With aging, we might encounter bagging of the eyelids, loosening skin, laxity, and wrinkles. The blepharoplasty involves the removal and repositioning of excess skin and fat around the eyes. The surgery can be performed on the lower lids, the upper lids, or both. After the surgery, the eyes look younger. There are different types of eyelid surgeries. For instance, upper eyelid surgery aims to remove the skin that droops over the eyes. On the other hand, lower eyelid surgery aims to reduce bags and wrinkles beneath the eyes. Eyelid surgery also helps get rid of vision problems.

Who is suitable for a Blepharoplasty?

While considering whether you are suitable or not for the blepharoplasty, we should check different factors:

  1. Generally, most suitable candidates are over the age of 35. There are some exceptions where the patient undergoing a blepharoplasty is younger, usually due to genetics issues.
  2. Good overall health without medical conditions that might impair healing or increase the risk of surgery.
  3. Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid, bags under the eyes, drooping lower eyelids that reveal the white below the iris.
  4. Excess skin on the upper eyelids that interferes with vision or appearance.
  5. Understanding the potential outcomes of the surgery and having realistic expectations regarding the results.
  6. An individual undergoing a blepharoplasty procedure should be emotionally ready for a significant change in their appearance.
  7. Candidates should not have serious eye conditions; those with conditions like glaucoma or dry eye may need to manage these issues before considering the eyelid surgery.

During the medical consultation, the key point is to check every patient's unique needs, to decide whether they are suitable or not.

Which problems can be solved with Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery is designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Here are the most important issues solvable with an eyelid surgery: 

  • Corrects the drooping eyelids
  • Removes the excess skin
  • Removes the under eye bag
  • Improves the aesthetics
  • Gives you a younger look

Important information!

  • Medical Evaluation: Your surgeon will review your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and possibly recommend some tests. It's crucial to disclose any eye conditions, thyroid disorders, diabetes, or cardiovascular diseases.
  • Inform your surgeon about all medications, supplements, and herbal treatments you're taking
  • It's advised to quit smoking at least 4-6 weeks before the surgery, as it increases the risk of complications and can alter the healing process.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption at least a week before surgery, as it can increase swelling and bleeding

Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with your doctor to discuss your goals, outcomes.

After agreeing on the details, our medical staff schedule your operation day.

  • The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, based on the complexity of the surgery and patient comfort.
  • Making incisions: For upper eyelid surgery, the incision is typically made within the natural crease of the eyelid. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision can be made just below the lash line or inside the eyelid (transconjunctival approach), depending on whether skin needs to be removed or not.
  • Excess fat is either removed or redistributed to eliminate puffiness.
  • Excess skin is trimmed to achieve a more youthful appearance. If necessary, the underlying muscles are tightened.
  • The incisions are closed with sutures, which may be removed after a few days or are absorbable.

It's crucial to follow post-operative care instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure optimal healing and results.

After your eyelid surgery, you need to follow some instructions in order to fasten your recovery process and achieve good results. 

  • Keeping your head elevated higher than your chest for several days after surgery while sleeping can help reduce swelling.
  • Take any prescribed medications, including pain relievers and antibiotics, as directed by your surgeon.
  • Gently clean the eyelid area (consult your surgeon before) and apply any ointments as directed to aid in healing.
  • Expect some swelling and bruising, which typically peak within the first week and gradually disappear over the next 2-4 weeks.
  • Get a good rest and avoid any strenuous activities for the first week. Light walking is encouraged to promote blood circulation.
  • Avoid bending over, lifting heavy objects, or performing activities that may increase blood pressure to the head.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun and wind when going outside.
  • Pay attention to the signs of infection or complications, such as increased pain, redness, fever, or unusual discharge from the incision sites, and report them immediately to your surgeon.

Although the total recovery process might take as long as two months, after the procedure, it is essential to follow aftercare instructions.
