Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) (upper and/or lower eyelid surgery) is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures with a very high patient satisfaction rate. Alone or in combination with a brow lift, this procedure opens and highlights the eyes and has one of the greatest rejuvenating effects of all facial cosmetic surgery procedures.
Is Eyelid Surgery Right for Me?
Heavily wrinkled eye skin can be a genetic trait that is familial as well as a natural result of the aging process. Eyelid surgery is a safe and proven surgical method for restoring a youthful appearance to the eyes. Because the eyes are the focal point on the face, the procedure may achieve anything from a subtle to dramatic improvement in a person’s appearance; this procedure corrects wrinkles, puffy bags, and heaviness of the eyelids, leaving patients with an energized look.
About the Eyelid Surgury Procedure
Eyelid surgery involves removing excess fat, muscle, and skin from the eyelids performed through external incisions made along the natural skin lines of the eyelids, such as the creases of the upper lids. It is generally done under local anaesthesia and the procedure can take around 1 hour, depending on the extent of the surgery. After the procedure, the area around your eyes may be bruised and swollen for about 7 – 10 days. Patients should keep their heads up and place cold compresses on their eyes periodically. Antibiotic eye drops or ointment may be prescribed. Patients cannot wear contact lenses for about 2 weeks, since the eyelids may be stiff and sore. Make-up may be worn after about 10 days. The resulting hairline incisions follow the natural contour of the eyelids and tend to fade in about 2 months.
