What is eyelid surgery?

It is one cosmetic procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of droopy and tired eyelids. This is done by removal of excess pockets of fat and skin from the lower and upper eyelids.

Procedure to perform blepharoplasty

It can be performed on your lower eyelids, upper eyelids or both. On the basis of the preoperative evaluation of factors such as your bone structure, underlying facial muscle structure, and the symmetry of your eyebrows, your cosmetic surgeon would decide how much fat, muscle or skin has to be removed.

  • Cosmetic surgeon would make precise markings indicating where excess tissues and fat would be removed in your lower and upper eyelids
  • In your upper eyelid, the cosmetic surgeon would make an incision hidden within the natural creases or fold of the upper eyelid.
  • In the lower eyelid, the incision is made beneath the lower lashes. Alternatively, at the time of removing excess fat, the incision can be made inside the lower eyelid. A laser might sometimes be used in combination with this technique for tightening lower eyelid skin.
  • In some cases, fat might be redistributed in the lower lids for eliminating bulges or puffiness. The cosmetic surgeon might make other adjustments too for correcting special problems like muscle laxity.
  • She or she will then apply tissue or sutures adhesives for smoothening and reconfiguring areas around the eyelids and eyebrows. Sutures are indiscernible to the eye and are usually self-dissolving. In most cases, there is virtually no detectable scar.
  • Less tissue is eliminated in patients who have dry eyes for avoiding exposing more of the eye to the air that can cause symptoms to further worsen.
  • The cosmetic surgeon also might make use of a laser for enhancing the procedure by resurfacing as well as smoothing wrinkles in the eyebrow and eyelid area.
