Blepharoplasty is commonly known as an eyelid correction procedure. As one ages, eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken leading to deposition of excess fat above and below the eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper eyelids and bags under the eyes. Besides making one looks older, severely sagging skin around the eyes can reduce the peripheral vision as well.

When it should be done?

Blepharoplasty may be an option if you have

  • - Baggy or droopy upper eyelids
  • - Excess skin of the upper eyelids that interferes with your peripheral vision
  • - Excess skin on the lower eyelids
  • - Bags under your eyes

What areas are amenable for Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty can selectively be done for either the upper or lower eyelid but usually both eyelids of both the eyes are done together for a complete rejuvenation.

Can it be combined with other procedures?

You may undergo blepharoplasty simultaneously with another procedure, such as brow lift, face lift and skin resurfacing.

What can be risks?

Possible risks of eyelid surgery include

  • - Infection
  • - Bleeding and haematoma
  • - Dry irritated eyes
  • - Difficulty in closing your eyes
  • - Visible scar
  • - Need for a follow-up surgery
  • - Temporarily blurred vision or, rarely, loss of eyesight
  • - Risks associated with surgery in general, including reaction to anaesthesia and blood clots

What can be expected result?

Mostly people are satisfied with the results of blepharoplasty with a more youthful appearance and more self-confidence. Your final result will appear over time, generally within several weeks. Bruising and swelling generally subside in 10 to 14 days. Suture line generally settles down in few months. Results of surgery may last a lifetime in some people and in some people droopy eyelids may recur.
