Blepharoplasty is a procedure that is used to improve the shape and look of the eyelids. The skin of the eyelids is the thinnest skin found on a person’s face. It is also quite sensitive to the changes that occur with ageing. As people age they frequently end up with excess eyelid skin, this can be visually improved by removing the excess, this is why people seek out blepharoplasty procedures. This procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and sedation.
All you need to know about Eye Lid Surgery
As people age, the fragile skin of the eyelids is easily effected as people lose volume and elasticity in their face. Over time, the upper eyelid skin can stretch and produce a hooding effect. When it comes to the lower eyelids, the issues are similar but usually caused by fat behind it, creating a baggy appearance to the lower eyelids. If there is enough excess skin, sometimes this skin will even start to rest on the base of the eyelashes at the base of the eyelids. Between gravity and the other by-products of the ageing process along with very thin skin, the eyelids are just a prime area to experience deterioration.
If you have excessive hooding or bagginess of the upper or lower eyelids, you are likely an excellent candidate to consider this procedure. If you frequently find people commenting on how tired you look or asking if you were crying, unwell, have allergies then likely you would find this a satisfying approach to facial rejuvenation. Some people have eye disorders that make them bad candidates for this procedure, and this is why having your eyes assessed by an ophthalmologist is highly recommended before considering this type of approach. You may also be required to have a blood test to screen for any health issues that may be causing, or that may make you a bad candidate for this procedure.
Yes, while it takes a while to develop these problems over years once this excess skin is removed, often people find they don’t ever need to have any more removed. So yes, it does produce quite long term results with many people finding one procedure is enough to keep them happy for their lifetime. If the skin is wrinkles after the removal of eyelid bags, you can consider laser resurfacing to tighten this skin and reduce this.
The procedure itself is a day surgery that is performed using sedation and local anaesthesia. After the procedure itself, a cold compress is recommended for 24 hours after the procedure to help reduce swelling, which is typically quite minimal. There is also very little bruising, unlike many other common procedures. When either the top or bottom eyelids are worked on seven or eight days is generally sufficient to get back to your normal routine, return to work, and social activities.
After upper eyelid blepharoplasty, you will be required to return to have a suture removed, before this you can cover as well as help protect the eyelid while it heals by wearing darkened sunglasses. If you are having lower eyelid blepharoplasty, there are no sutures to be removed later due to the procedure involving the inner region of the eyelid and not requiring the use of any.
All cosmetic procedures involve risk even non-surgical ones, so always listen thoroughly to the risks involved being explained by your Cosmetic Doctor during your consultation to make an informed decision to proceed or not.
While rare in extreme cases loss of vision has been reported, excessive bleeding can happen but also uncommon. Infections are possible, but when performed in a well run clean clinic by an experienced practitioner using correct hygiene procedures is uncommon. There’s always a risk as well when using sedation and local anaesthetic, however, reactions are also rather uncommon. Particular medications you take and other personal factors may increase your risk of these and other side effects, and this is something that will be discussed with you before your procedure.
