Info eyelid surgery
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is normally performed to create a younger, happier, and more alert appearance around the eyes. This is one of the most common and most rewarding aesthetic procedures today for patients between the ages of 35 and 40.
However, even younger patients may have eyes that appear tired and swollen—often a hereditary condition—which they may choose to correct.
Somewhere around the age of 30 to 35, you may notice that your skin is beginning to lose its elasticity, resulting in excess skin. In older patients, eyelid skin can sometimes droop so much that it interferes with their vision. It can also form puffy “bags” that contain fat. This fat normally surrounds the eyes, but because of the lost elasticity in the tissue it creates bulges around the eyes.
The surgeon places the incision in the natural skin folds of the upper and lower eyelid, or on the inside of the lower eyelid, leaving an almost invisible scar. After that redundant skin, muscle, and fat are removed.
The operation is carried out under local anesthesia, usually combined with mild sedation, which means that you will go home the same day.
After the operation you can expect your eyes to be swollen and bruised. Sometimes you may need a mild painkiller such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. The sutures will be removed at your checkup after about five days, and you will already see a significant improvement.
