Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty

The skin and the muscle around the eyelids are quite delicate and tend to lose elasticity with time. This, in turn, leads to loose, dark and droopy eyelids. In order to correct this, a blepharoplasty should be done.

So what is a blepharoplasty?

A blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid surgery is aimed at adjusting droopy eyelids through the removal of excess skin and fat thereby making the eyelids firmer and younger looking.  It can be performed on either one or both of the eyelids for cosmetic or functional purpose.

Also, this cosmetic surgery helps improve the vision as excessive skin accumulated at the upper eyelids can hinder a clear sight (peripheral vision).

Simply put, an eyelid surgery will give you a better, younger and smoother look.

    How blepharoplasty is performed

    Before the surgery begins, the patient will undergo a physical and sight examination. This entails examining the part of the patient’s eyelids skin that is considered excess and the part of the patient’s vision that the droopy skin has affected.

    After this, general anesthesia will be given to the patient.

    The surgeon will carefully mark lines along the natural folds of the eyes in order to reduce the residual scars to the barest minimum. After a the incisions have been made, the surgeon will extract excess fat or skin from the tissues in the eyelid(s). The cut is then stitched up in a very small portion in order to make stitches less visible.

    There are various techniques of blepharoplasty, one of them is a technique which involves cutting through the skin right below the eyelashes. After the incision has been made, the surgeon raises the skin around the eyelashes up in order to expose the membrane and remove the right proportion of fat and skin that is not needed. Another technique is the “Canthopexy”. This technique tightens the lower lid and places it in a higher position.

    The degree of scarring on the eyelids depends on the technique employed by the surgeon.

    First, patients should take proper care of the incision marks on their eyelid(s). These incision marks may take a week or two weeks to heal after which there will notice the scars. Patients can apply ointments approved by the surgeon on the scar to make it heal faster.

    After a blepharoplasty, the eyelids are bruised for 1 to 2 weeks. So you may need to wear dark glasses in the meantime. The stitches are removed on the fourth to the sixth day.

    Patients when outdoors should always wear glasses in order to protect their eyes and eyelids from any harsh element (sun, wind, dust...).
