Eyelid Surgery

Is your vision impaired due to drooping eyelids? Do your sagging eyelids make you look unapproachable, unfriendly and sad? Better think to undergo an eyelid operation now.

Eyelid surgery, also recognized as Blepharoplasty, can lift and enhance the form of the lower eyelids, upper eyelids, or both. It can offer a revitalized look to the surrounding region of the eyes, thus making the patient look more happy, radiant and alert.

An eyelid procedure is generally carried out on adult men and women. In order to be a good candidate for this treatment, one must have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have rational aspirations for improvement of the eyelids and the surrounding area.

Eyelid surgery can treat:

  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds on the upper eyelids that can impair vision
  • Lower eyelid surgery can get rid of excess skin and fine wrinkles
  • Puffy upper eyelids with excess fatty deposits
  • Large eye bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids

After the entire procedure is completed, a cold compress and lubricating ointment is applied, and in several instances, the patient’s eyes may be loosely covered with gauze.

The patient must listen carefully to the surgeon’s instructions regarding the appropriate care of the eyes, drugs to apply or intake orally to speed up the healing process and decrease the possibility of any infection and when to follow-up with the doctor.

During the recovery time, the patient will experience bruising, swelling, dry eyes and discomfort that can be managed with medication, ointment and cold compress. Irritation at the incision areas is possible as well.
