Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery - Tips for How to do Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is also called blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove fat, usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes - features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision.
Blepharoplasty usually takes one to three hours, depending on the extent of the surgery. If you're having all four eyelids done, the surgeon will probably work on the upper lids first, then the lower ones.
In a typical procedure, the surgeon makes incisions following the natural lines of your eyelids; in the creases of your upper lids, and just below the lashes in the lower lids.
If you have a pocket of fat beneath your lower eyelids but don't need to have any skin removed, your surgeon may perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. In this procedure the incision is made inside your lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar. It is usually performed on younger patients with thicker, more elastic skin.
After surgery, the surgeon will probably lubricate your eyes with ointment and may apply a bandage. Your eyelids may feel tight and sore as the anesthesia wears off, but you can control any discomfort with the pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. If you feel any severe pain, call your surgeon immediately.
Your surgeon will instruct you to keep your head elevated for several days, and to use cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. You'll be shown how to clean your eyes, which may be gummy for a week or so.
For upper eyelid surgery, generally an incision is hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid and extends slightly beyond the outside corner into the laugh lines or other existing creases.
Through this incision, excess skin and fatty tissue are removed. Because the incision follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid, it will be well camouflaged when healed.
Eyes are a prominent feature of your face. They have been called the "gateway to the soul". The eyelids protect your eyes. The outer covering is skin, the inner layer is lined with mucosa. Muscles close and open the lids. Eyelashes also help shield the eye. There is a delicate balance between the different components.
As the eyelid muscles and skin age, they sag, creating bulges. Appearance can sometimes be improved by removing some of the fat behind the muscles and or redraping the muscles.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery:
Cosmetic eyelid surgery, is an operation to remove excess skin, fat and muscle from around the eyes to produce a more alert and youthful appearance. The procedure can be performed on the upper and lower lids, at the same time or separately.
Why have cosmetic eylid surgery:
As we age, the skin around our eyes loses its elasticity. You may develop loose folds of skin on the upper eyelids and deep creases on the lower lids. At the same time, your muscles in this area may also slacken so that any fat bulges forward and looks baggy. 1 Cosmetic eye surgery can remove the excess skin, fat, or both, from around your eyes.
Cosmetic eye surgery may also improve your sight if saggy skin in the upper lids hangs over the eyelashes to obstruct vision.
The surgery can also remove wrinkles, but only those in the skin that is cut away in the operation. It will not remove "crow's feet" and cannot change the colour of dark shadows under the eyes.
