      Eyelied Surgery (blepheroplasty)

      The procedure done to reconstruct or repair the eyelids is known as blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. The process usually includes the removal of fat as well as excess skin and tissue. This is the process that is used to rectify upper eyelids that might be drooping too much or high level of puffiness under the eyes. While in many cases, blepharoplasty is done to reduce the signs of ageing, in certain cases, drooping eyelids can hamper vision.

      Types Of Blepharoplasty

      Upper eyelid surgery

      Used mainly to address the issue of functionality, this procedure is done mainly on the elderly. With age, the upper eyelid will lose the elasticity, which will lead to drooping. This can hamper vision and create difficulty while writing or driving and upper eyelid surgery aims at correcting the same.

      Lower eyelid blepharoplasty

      The surgery is done on the lower eyelid and aims to reduce the bags under the eyes or improve the wrinkles around the eyes.

      Double eyelid surgery

      Often known as the Asian blepharoplasty, the surgery is done to create a crease in the upper lid, which actually gives the appearance of a double lid.

      Before, During & After The Blepharoplasty

      Before The Surgery

      Before your surgeon can get you started on your procedure, you will be asked several questions about your health in general. Your medical history will be looked into, in detail, and if you have or have had any serious medical condition, you will need to mention the same. If you are a smoker, you will be asked to refrain from doing so, a few weeks prior to the surgery. You might also be asked to avoid medications such as aspirin, as these could lead to increased bleeding.

      During The Surgery

      The very first step would be to administer anaesthesia, which will ensure that the person does not feel any pain or discomfort. Certain surgeons will prefer to give sedation, which will allow the person to sleep through the procedure. Incisions will be made along the natural lines of the eyes or in order to protect the aesthetics, there could also be incisions on the inner side of the surface. Al the excess tissue and skin will be removed and then with the help of small sutures, the rest of the skin will be stitched back together.

      After The Surgery

      There will be swelling, bruising and redness around the surgical site for a few days and this is completely natural. You will be given very specific instructions about how to handle the surgical site. The doctor will also prescribe medications to control the pain and eye drops to avoid any infections. You could use cold compresses to help with the swelling and itching. Your eyes should be back to normal in a few weeks and your doctor will tell you about the precautions that you will need to take in the days to come.

      Possible Risks

      Ideally, when blepharoplasty has been conducted by an experienced surgeon, there are little to no chances of things going wrong. However, there are some complications that can be associated with this procedure, such as:

      • The results might not be visible immediately, because it might take some time for the results to become obvious.
      • There might be swelling and bruising around the eyes, and this might not fade away immediately.
      • There could be blurred vision or even double vision for a few days.
      • The procedure might have to be repeated every few years, making it an expensive investment.
      • The scarring might be obvious.
      • One common complication of blepharoplasty is a condition known as ectropion. In this condition, the lower eyelid gets pulled down and this situation would invite further the requirement of further surgery.
      • There could be an appearance of minute whiteheads, after the stitches have been removed.
      • There could be extreme dryness or irritation in the eyes, immediately after the surgery and this could continue for a few days.
      • Some people could also have trouble closing their eyes for a few days.
      • There could be a lack of symmetry in the final results.

      Is There An Age Limit For Blepharoplasty?

      While there is no specific age limit for the procedure, the requirement for the same normally comes with old age.

      Will Blepharoplasty Take Care Of The Wrinkles And Crows’ Feet Around My Eyes?

      No; blepharoplasty is meant to correct only the eyelids, which means that it cannot take care of wrinkles or crows’ feet. There are other procedures for such issues.

      Will Blepharoplasty Take Care Of The Dark Circles Under My Eyes?

      Dark circles have nothing to do with the dark skin under the eyes, which is why treating the eyelids will have no effect on the colouring of the skin.

       

      Will The Effects Of Blepharoplasty Be Permanent?

      While the effects might not be permanent, it will last a really long time. With age, the eyelids will start drooping again and a repeat surgery might be required.

      Will Insurance Cover My Blepharoplasty Bill?

      Drooping eyelids could hamper vision, which is why, certain insurance companies will cover the same.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What is blepharoplasty?

      Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery. As individuals age, the eyelids can begin to droop and fill with fat, which can make you appear older and tired. It can also reduce your peripheral vision, especially at the far edges and tops of your visual range.

       

      What are some of the reasons an individual would choose eyelid surgery?

      Many individuals choose blepharoplasty to reduce the appearance of bags under their eyes, to eliminate droopy and tired looking eyelids, and to restore peripheral vision that has been impaired by severely sagging eyelid skin.

       

      Will eyelid surgery fix my peripheral vision?

      Eyelid surgery only fixes peripheral vision that is blocked by droopy eyelids. There are many other causes of peripheral vision loss, including glaucoma, occlusions, a detached retina or a compression of the optic nerve. If you are experiencing peripheral vision loss, it is important to schedule an appointment with our eye doctor for a thorough examination and diagnosis.

       

      How long does the surgery take, and is it performed on an outpatient basis?

      Eyelid surgeries are generally performed on an outpatient basis. Since local anesthetic is used, we do ask that you bring an alternative driver with you or have someone drop you off and pick you up. The surgery typically takes two hours or less, but can take longer.

       

      How long will I need to recover?

      Since the surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, you will be allowed to go home and recover as soon as the local anesthetic has worn off, and it has been determined that it is safe for you to return home. Recovery times vary. In general, your stitches, if not self-dissolving, will be removed after 10 days, and most patients are fully recovered after one month. However, recovery can take longer.

       

      What side-effects will I experience after the surgery?

      After your surgery, our eye doctor will provide you with paperwork on activities to avoid and signs of serious complications. Most people experience swelling, bruising and redness at the incision sites. You may also have some light sensitivity, double vision and watery eyes. Keeping the head elevated and using cool compresses can reduce swelling and bruising. In addition, we may prescribe eye drops or creams to help with discomfort.
