What is Eyelid surgery / blepharoplasty ?
Eyelid surgery involves a surgical procedure for correction of the disfiguration of the eyelids. It involves removal of excess skin and fat from the upper eyelid or lower eyelid or both and tightening of the muscles and tendons surrounding the eye. The eyelid surgery aims at restoring the proper functioning of eyelids and making the eyelids look cosmetically good.
What is the procedure for Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)?
Before the blepharoplasty surgical procedure at The Esthetic Clinic , intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia is given to the patient for comfort. In upper eyelid surgery, an incision is made within the natural crease of the eye and excess skin and fat are removed, followed by a stitch to close the incisions and allow formation of a new eyelid crease. In lower eyelid surgery, the incision can be made below the lash line and excess fat, muscle and skin are cut out, or incision can be made inside the lower eyelid called a transconjuctival approach used to treat the eyelid, without visible incisions. Under normal conditions, eyelid surgery takes from one to two hours, per eyelid.

After the blepharoplasty surgery, the antibiotic ointments and cold compresses are applied. During the first few days of recovery, the eyes will be swollen and red. Ice will help reduce swelling and bruising. Warm compresses should be applied after 48 hours to promote healing. The patient is able to see 2 to 3 days after surgery and stitches are removed 2 to 7 days after the surgery. There could be little discomfort in the eyes during recovery, which can be controlled by medication. Contact lenses are forbidden to wear for at least 2 weeks. Moreover, eyes should be protected from the sun and it is advised to wear sunglasses.
