What is blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)?
Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical operation that removes excess skin, muscle or fat from the eyelids. The procedure is performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. This cosmetic surgery can lift the upper eyelids, correct vision problems due to eyelid drooping and improve the appearance of baggy skin under the eyes. While the surgery can lift drooping lids, it does not lift the eyebrows or eliminate eye wrinkles.
Who is a good candidate for eyelid surgery?
Healthy individuals who are over 35 years old are the best candidates for blepharoplasty. The presence of some medical conditions, including high blood pressure, dry eyes and heart disease, can exclude a potential candidate. Additionally, the muscular structure surrounding the eyes should be in good shape. If it is not, the patient is not a good candidate for the procedure. However, for those in good health who suffer from droopy or saggy eyelids, surgery can be beneficial.
What does the surgery involve?
Blepharoplasty involves the surgeon making a small incision in the creases of the upper and lower eyelids as needed. If fat in the eye area is to be excised, the surgeon will make a small incision inside the lower rim of the eye in a procedure known as transconjunctival eyelid surgery. This incision often extends to the eye’s outer corner. The fat is separated from the muscle tissue and is then removed. The operation is performed under a local anesthetic and sedative.
