EYELID SURGERY (BLEPHAROPLASTY)
Blepharoplasty also known as a corrective eye region surgery for upper and lower eyes. This procedure removes excess skin and fats and correct surrounding aesthetic issues. It can be caused by ageing or drooping eyes that experience fat and muscle weakness.
Topic 1: Types of Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty is divided into 2 parts: upper blepharoplasty (or upper eyelid surgery), and lower blepharoplasty (or lower eyelid surgery).
Topic 1.a: Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid excess skin and fat can create a heavy looking eyelid, aged appearance, puffiness and sometimes block the upper field of vision.
- It uses incisions to allow for removal of unnecessary skin, fat, and muscles due to aging for a youthful eye appearance.
- Facial wrinkles around the eyes are reduced, thus creating a milder impression.
Double eyelid surgery creates a natural-looking crease in the area above the eyelashes that makes your eyes look bigger and more lively.
- An incision is made on the double eyelid line to remove some tissue, including skin, muscle, fat and connective tissues.
- Then, the dermis layer bellows the line is stitched to either fascia or tarsal plate, allowing them to adhere to one another by forming scar tissue.
- The double eyelid line created in this method is accurate and clear.
Topic 1.b: Lower Eyelid Surgery (Eyebags Removal)
An eye bag removal (blepharoplasty procedure) can help men and women of all ages to overcome the inevitable signs of skin ageing above, below and around the eyes.
All the excess fat (which forms the eyebags) are removed by the surgeon, and your surrounding skin is stretched to tighten it and make sure the end result is as smooth as possible, making you look youthful and young like never before.
Topic 2: Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
- You will look younger and more youthful, taking away your old tired and puffy looks
- An ideal solution for premature ageing
- You will experience an improvement in your overall self-esteem and self-confidence
- You will be able to apply make-up and other skin care products more easily
- In some cases, vision may also improve since drooping skin obstructing your vision will be removed
Topic 3: The Recovery
- The eyelid surgery results in the area being quite tender and bruised following surgery and the actual eye area can become sensitive and dry.
- Pain killer medications are always provided for any discomfort, and usually an antibiotic cream.
- Patients are encouraged to stay as mobile and upright as possible during their early recovery stage to help reduce any swelling or bruising.
- Bruising and swelling can also be minimised by patients keeping their head elevated during rest and sleep and by the regular postoperative use of cold compresses.
- Artificial tears are also provided to smooth irritation.
- In the first two weeks, patients are strongly advised to avoid any level of activity that would put undue strain on the eyes region.
