Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, muscle, and fat from the eyelids. This procedure can address droopy eyelids, puffy bags under the eyes, and other signs of aging around the eyes. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.

  1. Upper Eyelid Surgery:

  • Excess Skin Removal: The surgeon removes excess skin that may be causing drooping or sagging of the upper eyelids.

  • Muscle Adjustment: In some cases, the underlying muscles may be adjusted to improve eyelid function and appearance.

  • Fat Repositioning: If there are fatty deposits contributing to puffiness, they may be repositioned or removed.

  1. Lower Eyelid Surgery:

  • Fat Removal or Repositioning: Excess fat causing under-eye bags may be removed or repositioned for a smoother contour.

  • Skin Tightening: Loose or sagging skin in the lower eyelids may be tightened to reduce wrinkles and improve overall appearance.

  1. Incisions:

  • Upper Eyelids: Incisions are typically made in the natural crease of the eyelid to minimize visible scarring.

  • Lower Eyelids: Incisions may be made just below the lower lash line or inside the lower lid (transconjunctival incision) for minimal scarring.

  1. Recovery:

  • Recovery time can vary, but patients may experience swelling and bruising, especially in the first few days after surgery. Following post-operative care instructions is crucial.
