Eyelid Surgery

Compare 30 clinics

Blepharoplasty surgery, also known as eyelid surgery is a type of plastic surgery used by men and women from all around the world to correct certain defects, disfigurations or deformities of the eyelids. Eyelid surgery can also be used to aesthetically enhance the eyes region, giving it a more youthful appearance.

During blepharoplasty surgery, the surgeon can remove excess skin and excess fatty tissue but in the same time strengthen the muscle and tendons from the eyes region.

Eyelid Surgery Candidates

Blepharoplasty surgery or eyelid surgery is recommended for patients with loose skin in the eyes region, droopy upper eye lids, bags under their eyes or simply patients who wish to rejuvenate their facial appearance.

Am I Suitable for Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty is not recommended for patients suffering from one or more of the following:

● Dry eye syndrome
● Hyperthyroidism
● Detached retina
● Glaucoma
● Diabetes
● Cardiovascular disease
● Hypertension

Preparing for Eyelid Surgery

Patients should avoid smoking for at least a month before and after going in for blepharoplasty surgery. Blood thinners, herbal teas and vitamins are prohibited at least 2 weeks before the eyelid surgery. These measures are taken in order to limit potential side effects such as bruising and swelling during the blepharoplasty surgery recovery period but also to ensure the results of the procedure.

How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?

Blepharoplasty surgery or eyelid surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia. The surgeon will decide on the type of anesthesia used after the patient’s first examination.

Once the anesthesia kicks in, the surgeon will begin creating incisions according to the patient’s needs. Incisions are usually created in the eyelid creases in order to make them less visible after surgery – just below the lashes for the lower eyelids and in the creases of the upper eyelids.

Once the incisions are created, the surgeon begins eliminating excess skin, muscle and fatty tissue from the area. Pockets of fat under the lower eyelids can be removed through incisions made on the inside of the eyelid. Once the excess fat and skin are removed, the muscle itself can be tightened for a better effect. The incisions are then closed with fine sutures and the eyelid surgery recovery period can begin.

Patients can use water or a special type of gel to keep their eyes region clean during the blepharoplasty surgery recovery period. Eye drops can be used by patients with dry eyes. Steri-strips may also be used during the blepharoplasty surgery recovery period, in order to provide better support to the eyelids. In around 3 to 5 days the sutures are removed and in around a week the patient may begin using makeup around the eyes.

● Over removal of fatty tissue

?
What is an Asian Blepharoplasty surgery?

Asian blepharoplasty surgery is a type of cosmetic procedure where a crease is created in the eyelid. This type of surgery is very popular among Asian patients who wish to have a more Caucasian looking appearance. The crease is created and the eyes seem to look somewhat bigger. Many patients from all around the world, especially the USA request Asian blepharoplasty surgery on a daily basis.
