Intro to Blepharoplasty

You look tired and exhausted all the time because of puffy eyes and drooping eyelids, right? You may have tried creams and ointments, and the results are still unsatisfactory! Let’s introduce you to blepharoplasty, which can end your struggle permanently.
Blepharoplasty, also called eyelid surgery or eyelift, is a surgical procedure that can treat droopy eyelids, improve the appearance of the eyelids, and even enhance vision in some cases. Your surgeon can perform the surgery on your upper or lower eyelids or both. Obviously, this surgery is trending among women around the world as it brings incredible benefits and results.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty carries both cosmetic and therapeutic benefits. During the surgery, your surgeon removes skin, muscle, and fat from your eyelids to give them a more lifted appearance. Here is a list of benefits that you can get from this surgery:

    Candidates for Blepharoplasty

    If you’re in excellent health, have no eye conditions, and have realistic expectations about the surgery, you might be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. Most people undergo the procedure when they are 35 years old or older, but if you have a family history of droopy or baggy eyelids, you may choose to have it sooner. Also, you can choose to have the surgery if you:

    • Have bags beneath your eyes
    • Have eyebrows that start to droop
    • Complain of poor vision due to sagging skin

    Preparation for Blepharoplasty

    Preparing for blepharoplasty is not always straightforward. First, you need to choose a professional plastic surgeon who has a proven experience in eye plastic surgery. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss your problems and the expected results for your eyelids. In addition, preparation for blepharoplasty also includes:
    • Undergo physical examination and several eye tests or lab tests. Also, your surgeon may take clinical photographs of your eyelids to help throughout the surgery.
    • Get certain things ready in your home before surgery, such as gauzes, ice packs, and eye drops.
    • Stop taking certain medications, including aspirin and other drugs that cause bleeding.

    Steps of Blepharoplasty (Upper Eyelids)

    Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure that needs around 2 hours to be completed for both the upper and lower eyelids. Your surgeon may give you either a local or general anesthetic. Here is a quick review of steps that your surgeon may follow during the upper and lower eyelids surgery:

    3. Incision Closure

    Steps of Blepharoplasty (Lower Eyelids)

    The steps of lower eyelid surgery aren’t much different than those of upper eyelid surgery, and they include:

    2. Fat & Skin Removal

    Next, they remove fat beneath the eyes and a small bit of skin. If needed, your surgeon will provide more support to the muscles and tendon of the eyelid.

    3. Incision Closure

    Finally, they close the incision with stitches and apply suture strips to support the eyelids.

    Recovery After Blepharoplasty

    The results of eyelid surgery usually last for at least 5-7 years and may continue for a lifetime. In any case, the recovery phase after blepharoplasty involves the following:
    • Take several days off work and stay home as your eyelids recover.
    • You may experience dry eyes during the next two weeks. Contact your doctor if dry eyes remain longer than two weeks.
    • Expect to see bruises, scarring, and redness during the next two weeks.
    • Avoid driving for a couple of days following the procedure.
    • Elevate your head by using cushions to minimize swelling.
    • Clean your eyelids gently with ointment or eye drops and place a cold pack over your eye.
    • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun but avoid wearing contact lenses.
    • Stay away from smoking and smokers.
    • Avoid swimming and rigorous activities.

    Risks of Blepharoplasty

    Fortunately, the risks and side effects of blepharoplasty are uncommon, but some people may face things like:

    • Infection or bleeding
    • Abnormal skin shape
    • Eyelid discoloration
    • Inability to close one’s eye
    • Vision impairments
    • Dry eyes

      The day we contacted the clinic they explained everything to us very thoroughly and took care of all the bookings for us. I didn't have to stress about were I'll be staying or if it's close/far from the hospital or how will i get there, it was all taken care off. From the moment we arrived in the airport we were taken care off very nicely. There was a driver waiting for us outside, he took all our luggage and he drove us to the hotel. The next morning the driver was waiting patiently downstairs, we needed a chash machine & a place to exchange ...
