Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty, is a plastic surgery operation used to correct disfigurations, deformities and defects of the eyelids. You can also resolve functional and cosmetic problems of Periorbita (the area from the eyebrow to the upper portion of the cheek).
An eyelid surgery can be performed on upper lids, lower lids or both. If you are having surgery on both eyelids, the surgeon will start from the upper lid. He/She cut will cut along the fold your eyelid and removes the excess skin. Blepharoplasty can treat drooping lower eyelids, fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids, excess skin of the lower eyelid, bags under the eyes and loose or sagging skin of the upper eyelid.
Severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision and make you older.
Before an eyelid surgery you’ll under go a physical examination such as measuring your eyelids and testing your tear production. You have to review your medical history with your specialist. You have to stop medications like taking Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen and other medications that may increase the bleeding. If you smoke, you have to quit smoking for a few weeks before the surgery to achieve the best possible result.
The process of Blepharoplasty surgery will take between 1-3 hours depending on the difficulty of the individual case. Recovery will take about 1 or 2 weeks but full recovery will take a little longer.
You have to make an appointment with your specialist between 5 -7 days after the surgery to remove the stitches. To ease the recovery time for yourself you have to avoid rubbing your eyes and heavy lifting. If you wear contact lenses don’t put them into your eyes for at least the first two weeks after the surgery, don’t go swimming and sleep with your head raise higher than your chest.
