What is Blepharoplasty?
Having some idea of blepharoplasty before and after the procedure may help you with any concerns you may have about the surgery.
As we age, the eyelids stretch and the muscles supporting them weakens causing hooded or droopy eyelids which can reduce your peripheral vision. Blepharoplasty, also referred to as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift, repairs droopy eyelids and reduces or eliminates vision problems. The procedure tightens or removes excess sagging skin or fat around the eyes giving a smoother, younger appearance. Blepharoplasty is also used in double eyelid surgery or Asian eyelid surgery to create or enhance an upper eyelid crease.
The procedure is usually performed under local anaesthetic with sedation, or under general anaesthetic, and usually takes between 1-2 hours.
In upper eyelid surgery, an incision is made along the eyelid crease to remove excess skin, fat or muscle. The skin is then stitched together to create an eyelid crease with scars hidden in the fold of the eyelids. In lower eyelid surgery, an incision is made below the lower lashes or on the inside of the eyelid - called a transconjunctival approach. Thin, sticky strips called suture strips is placed to support the eyelids after surgery and is usually removed within a week.
Bruising and swelling normally disappears within two weeks and stitches will usually remain for a week.
