What is Eyelid Surgery?
Also known as a blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin, muscle, and fat from the eyelid area. This surgery can be performed for both the upper and lower eyelids. Not only can a blepharoplasty improve the appearance of bags under the eyes, but it also can correct visual disturbances due to eyelid drooping (ptosis). Keep in mind that although eyelid surgery can correct drooping of the lids, it’s will not correct wrinkling or drooping of the eyebrows.
Suitable Candidates for Eyelid Surgery
The ideal candidates are patients who are physically fit and at least 35 years of age. Patients suffering from specific medical conditions such as dry eyes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension should not undergo a blepharoplasty. Furthermore, the structural abnormalities around the eyelid area may preclude patients from undergoing the procedure.
Eyelid Surgery Procedure Specifics
If deemed to be a suitable candidate for eyelid surgery, your surgeon will begin by making very small incisions along the natural crease of your upper eyelid. If undergoing a lower blepharoplasty, an incision will be made along the lower rim of the eye. If excess fatty tissue is the problem, your surgeon will perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. This procedure entails separating the muscle and fatty tissue so that fatty deposits can be removed. Both an upper and lower blepharoplasty are generally performed under a local anesthetic in conjunction with a low-dose sedative for comfort.
