What is Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is utilized to improve the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. It is a way to treat excess skin and fat deposits around the eyes, giving a more youthful and energetic appearance to the face.

If your vision is obscured by excess skin and fat deposits, eyelid surgery can be performed for medical reasons and can be covered by insurance.

The above patient wanted a subtle brightening to her eyes, excess skin was removed from the upper eyelids and bulging fat was removed through an internal incision.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM EYELID SURGERY?

Ideal patients for eyelid surgery are healthy and wish to rejuvenate their appearance. Eyelid surgery can specifically treat:

  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids
  • Loose or excess skin hanging down from the upper eyelids
  • Obscured vision
  • Puffiness around upper eyelids
  • Crepe paper wrinkles around the lower eyelids

The procedure should result in smoother, more youthful skin contours around the eyes, presenting a more attractive and energetic appearance. Vision may be improved and your expressions may appear more positive.

Eyelid surgery may be combined with a number of other treatments for the best possible outcome. These treatments may include dermal filler injections, a face lift or brow lifts. Skin treatments such as chemical peels may also be used to treat dark circles under the eyes.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR EYELID SURGERY

General anesthetic or intravenous sedation are often used for eyelid surgery to ensure comfort. The upper eyelid incision is made with the natural lines of the skin, and extends from the interior corner to slightly beyond the outside corner. Excess fat and skin are removed through the incision and the skin is closed with fine sutures.

Lower eyelid procedures have incisions located either in the natural lines of the eyelid or on the inside of the eyelid itself. Incisions located within the eyelid do not produce any visible scarring, but may not be used to remove excess skin. Fat and skin are removed from within incisions, and a laser may be used to tighten and firm the skin beneath the eye. The incision is closed using very fine sutures for minimal scarring.

AFTER YOUR SURGERY

Following surgery, an ointment will be applied to the eyes, which may blur vision initially. Some swelling and bruising is likely, which will further puff the eyelids. Discomfort should be minimal. The first few days should be spent with the head elevated and cold compresses applied to the eyes. There may be a tight feeling around the eyes at first. This discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter medication.

Stitches are removed after the first week, and bruising should lessen in that time as well. Some swelling may persist for 1-3 weeks. Normal activities may be resumed in 7-10 days, though caution should be taken not to strain the eyes or do heavy lifting. Concealing makeup may be applied at this time if desired.

UNDERSTANDING THE RISKS OF EYELID SURGERY

During your consultation, you will discuss your complete medical history, as well as the risks associated with eyelid surgery. Possible complications include bleeding, changes in sensitivity, infection, allergic reactions, scarring and asymmetry.
