Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty (also commonly known as eyelid surgery) is a procedure that uses skin tightening and fat removal/transfer methods to eliminate wrinkles, bags and the dark circles under the eyes. The surgery aims to redefine the shape of the eye and give it a more youthful appearance.

What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.

The most frequently performed eyelid procedures are:

  • Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty – Performed through a cosmetic lid crease incision, upper eyelid blepharoplasty allows the surgeon to remove excess skin and fat to reshape the profile of the upper eyelid. The skin of the upper eyelid is very thin, which means the incision (hidden in the upper eyelid crease) heals with no visible scarring.
  • Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty – The surgeon will make an incision through the pink tissue on the inside of the lower eyelids, and then remove or transfer the excess fat to the area between the lower eyelid and the cheek. The removal of dark circles and bags under the eyes results in a refreshed, less tired appearance.

What eyelid surgery can treat ?

  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
  • Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

Recovery from Eyelid Surgery

Both Upper and Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty are performed on an outpatient basis. It is generally recommended that patients plan on staying home for 2-3 days after the procedure, and apply ice to the eyelids to reduce bruising and swelling. It typically takes about 3 weeks for the bruising to disappear completely, although this can be effectively covered with makeup or sunglasses. Don’t forget what the doctor recommended. After the surgery, there will be inevitable things that you will suffer from. Ask the doctor about what you should expect, what is normal, and in which cases you have to call your doctor.

The most probable things that you will experience temporarily are:

  • Sensitivity to light, sunlight especially
  • You may find it hard to control your eyelids. Please don’t push them too hard
  • Disturbances in your vision
  • Swelling and bruising

Try avoiding any extra activity that might tire your eyelids after the surgery
