The outcomes of blepharoplasty can be analyzed in three main categories: aesthetical, health-related, and psychological.
Your eyelids determine how your eyes look like, and the way your eyes look like determines how you are perceived by the others. The appearance of your eyelids has a tremendous effect on your facial aesthetics. Upper and lower eyelid surgeries can significantly rewind the effects of aging and gravity. With an upper eyelid surgery, you can get rid of baggy or droopy appearance on your upper eyelids and the excess skin of them which interferes with your peripheral vision. With a lower eyelid surgery, you can get rid of the excess skin of your lower eyelids and the bags under them.
Lower eyelid surgery is done just for cosmetic reasons. However, upper eyelid surgery has an important health benefit, in addition to its cosmetic benefits. It is very common that with aging, sagging on the upper eyelids develop. This excess skin can block your peripheral vision. In addition to the psychological distress caused by this, which is also dangerous, especially when you are in the traffic. An upper eyelid surgery can easily remove the excess skin and give you your uninterrupted peripheral vision back.
The psychological outcomes of the procedure are as important as the physical ones. The eyes are the focus of attention. They are the most prominent feature on our faces. If you don’t like the way your eyes look, you won’t want others to look you in the eye. If you think the appearance of your eyes make you look older, you may not want to look in the mirror. Fortunately, eyelid surgeries achieve amazing result when done by an experienced and talented plastic surgeon. Elimination of problems related to the appearance of your eyes can lead to significant psychological and social improvements.
Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to change the appearance of upper, lower, or both eyelids.
Like all kinds of surgery, blepharoplasty requires anesthesia. Usually, in the eyelid surgery, local anesthesia combined with sedation is used. Local anesthesia will be applied on your eyelids. You will be awake but sedated during the procedure.
There are 2 different cosmetic eyelid surgeries: the upper eyelid surgery and the lower eyelid surgery. You can have one, or both. If you are having both, your surgeon will first work on the upper eyelids. All the incisions will be made carefully so that they will be concealed within the natural folds and creases of your eyelids. The surgery takes around 2 hours if both upper and lower eyelids are done. There is also a functional eyelid surgery: ptosis, which is a condition where the upper eyelid droops, repair. *1 It can be done in combination with your cosmetic eyelid surgeries.
Your surgeon will make an incision on the natural crease of your upper eyelid. They will remove excess skin and muscles and remove or relocate fats inside your upper eyelid. *2 Then they will repeat the same procedure for your other upper eyelid.
Your surgeon will make an incision below the lash line of your lower eyelid (or inside your lower eyelid). They will remove excess skin and muscle and remove or relocate fat inside your lower eyelid (if the incision is made inside the eyelid, no skin is removed). Then they will repeat the same procedure for your other upper eyelid.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a widely performed operation, thus the risks are minimized. But as with any other surgery, especially if done by inexperienced surgeons, there can be some complications such as:
After the surgery, there will be stitches on your eyelids for up to a week.
Right after the surgery, ointment will be applied on your eyes to prevent them from drying.
Your eyes may also be covered with gauze. You may temporarily experience blurred vision,
light sensitivity, dry or watering eyes, swelling, and bruising. You may also experience some pain or discomfort.
The pain can be easily controlled by painkillers that your surgeon will prescribe to you.
It is important to avoid strenuous activities and exercises for 2-4 weeks. Because they can increase blood flow to your eyes. You should also be careful about daily activities that can increase the pressure in your head, such as lifting heavy objects, bending, or lying on your back without keeping your head elevated.
The swelling and bruising are gone within one to two weeks. *3 Then, you will feel ready to go outside and have fun! The recovery time for eyelid surgeries is very short! However, the scars can take several months to fade. You should not expose your eyelid skin to too much sunlight until the healing process is fully complete.
A wellbeing assistant will visit you in your hotel room every day during the first week after the surgery.
