Eyelid surgery, also known as Eyelift or Blepharoplasty, is performed to improve the appearance of eyelids by removing excess skin from the upper eyelids and fixing baggy and puffy lower eyelids. It is usually done under general anesthesia/intravenous sedation medication.
The eye lift surgery is typically done for cosmetic reasons-
- Improves facial appearance by tightening droopy and puffy
- Imparts a rejuvenated appearance to the aging
- Reduces functional problems of eyelids.
- Boosts confidence.
It’s also an effective method to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision.
An eyelift surgery cannot eradicate dark circles under the eyes or facial wrinkles and hence it is frequently done alongside with other techniques such as laser resurfacing, filler injections, or forehead lifts.
Ideal eyelift aspirant-
The best candidate for an eye lift is one who is-
- in good health
- a non-smoker
- having no serious eye conditions
- having realistic beliefs
- mostly of 35 years or older
But if there is a history of baggy eyelids or droopy eyelids in the family, one may decide to have the surgery done sooner.
The Eyelift Procedure-
The eyelid surgery includes the upper part of the cheek and eyebrows apart from eyelids. Slits are made on the natural lines of the eyelids and both upper and lower lids are worked upon and modifications are made accordingly to bring out the desired effect. It removes or tightens sagging skin around the eyes, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Potential risks related to Blepharoplasty-
- Anaesthesia related complications.
- Swelling and scarring around eyes.
- Dryness in eyes.
- Sensitivity to sunlight or harsh light
- Persistent pain.
- Impaired vision.
- Difficulty in closing eyes.
One must consider these complications before opting for this procedure. And as the eyes age, this procedure is not long-lasting and mostly lasts for 5-7 years.
