Eyelid surgery is also called blepharoplasty involves reduction of bags under the lower eyelids and removal of excess skin from the upper eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be beneficial to patients with sagging upper eyelids that get in the way of their vision, the condition is common in old age but may affect some young adults. Eyelid surgery may also be recommended for cosmetic reasons.
An eye lift does not remove wrinkles or fine line and dark circles under the eye. Upper eyelid surgery can last at least five to seven years. Lower eyelid surgery rarely needs to be repeated
With age and exposure, the epidermal fat layer shrinks and the skin gradually lose its elasticity. Over a period of time, the skin becomes loose excessive and collects on the upper and lower eyelids. Excess skin on the lower eyelid causes wrinkles and bulges. On the upper eyelids, the extra folds of skin hang over the eyelashes obstructing the vision.
Blepharoplasty treatment can take up to two hours, the cosmetic surgeon will make a small cut along the natural lines in the upper eyelid to remove excess fat, muscle, and skin. The incision is closed with small stitches along the same lines. For removal of bags under the lower eyelid, the surgeon may cut along the lash line or inside the lower eyelid. Complete recovery may take ten to twelve days. Blepharoplasty treatment is a safe procedure with mild side effects that subside with time. Complications are very rare.
