What is Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift Surgery)?
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic plastic surgery that consists of modifying the region of the eye with the purpose of having brighter, and beautiful eyes. It is also called the Eyelid lift surgery, although it doesn’t literally lift your eyelid; but after the surgery the upper part of the face is lifted.
What does the Blepharoplasty actually do?
The Blepharoplasty basically takes care of the extra fat, tissue or skin that is around your eyes. It removes or repositions the tissues in a way to restore youth to your face and eyelids and fix some of the problems you might have. The extended Blepharoplasty surgery expands the blepharoplasty and adds mid face lift to the procedure – This will make your entire eyelid, as well as the upper part of your face look much younger and beautiful to the eye.

Recovery after surgery
At first, the patients do experience bruising and swelling, but these go away in approximately 5 days to a maximum of 2 weeks. The bandages are removed the next day after the Blepharoplasty, but the stitches have to stay for a week. The surgery leaves absolutely no scars. The actual effects of the Blepharoplasty are seen after a few months, however. You can notice a general improvement of your looks, especially in the area around your eyes. They will look bigger and refreshed and the ugly bags and sagging around the eyes will disappear.
FAQs (Frequently Ask Question)
Why is this surgery performed?
The blepharoplasty surgery is usually performed because of cosmetic considerations. It generally makes the people look better, more open and sociable, but it also makes the vision improve, if the excess eyelid skin has been obstructing vision (dermatochalasis). The extra skin or fat on the upper eyelid gives people a lot of discomfort such as the incapability of looking well or the appearance of being tired. Our patients tell us that others ask them if they are sleepy, drowsy or even drunk, because of the eyelid bags the Blepharoplasty removes all that extra fat, and therefore all the other discomforts, both functional and cosmetic.
The lower eyelid Blepharoplasty is usually done to remove the extra skin, but it can reduce wrinkles as well. The surgery is also done sometimes in order to correct the droopiness or the sagging of the eyelids.
How long does it take?
The surgery lasts for an hour, at most.
Are there people who can’t do the surgery?
There usually isn’t anyone who can’t do it. The surgery does not affect any other parts of the eyes or other systems, so it can be done by anyone with any kind of disease. You can also continue with any other treatment you might be following during the surgery without any problems. Since the surgery itself is performed on the eyelid, it does not impact the eyes or vision in any way.
What are the risks of the surgery?
In general, blepharoplasty surgery is very safe. Since the lower eyelid surgery is performed through the inside of the eye (trans-conjunctival approach), there are no scars post surgery. Some of the risks of surgery may include double vision post surgery, the inability of closing the eyes immediately post surgery, infections, scarring, bleeding or dry eyes.
In how much time can the people return to their normal activities after the surgery?
It usually takes around two weeks for people to be able to return to their usual activities, without having any problems. It almost never takes longer than two weeks.
What is the East Asian Blepharoplasty?
The East Asian Blepharoplasty is the procedure through which people with a single eyelid can basically get that crease that gives it the name of double eyelid. Folks of Mongoloid racial descent do not have a well formed eyelid crease and this is called a ‘single eyelid’.The surgery is also called the Double eyelid surgery, as it forms a well defined eyelid crease, and is very frequent in countries from Asia especially, such as Korea, Japan, states in North-East India like Assam, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, Sikkim, etc, China and others.
