What is a Blepharoplasty?
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that’s performed to remove excess fat and sagging skin from both the upper and lower eyelids areas. A blepharoplasty is mostly commonly performed to improve the appearance of under-the-eye bags and excessive drooping of the upper eyelids, which generally occurs as part of the natural aging process. While undergoing a blepharoplasty can dramatically improve the appearance of dropping eyelids, it isn’t designed to correct excessive wrinkling or drooping of the eyebrows.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
In general, individuals who are in good physical health and are at least 35 years old are typically the best candidates to undergo eyelid surgery. Patients who suffer from high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and dry eyes are usually not deemed suitable candidates for the procedure. In addition, there are also certain structural abnormalities that could preclude patients from undergoing a blepharoplasty.
What Should I Expect During Eyelid Surgery?
If found to be a suitable candidate, your surgeon will begin by administering a local anesthetic in combination with a low-dose sedative. A small incision along the natural crease of your upper or lower eyelid will then be performed. If transconjunctival eyelid surgery (lower blepharoplasty) is performed, your surgeon will slightly extend the incision to the outer corner of your eye. Both fatty tissue and muscle are then separated so that excess fat can be removed.
