What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a type of surgery that is performed to improve how the eyelids look and function. This procedure can be done for either the upper or lower lids, or both. Eyelid surgery can help with sagging skin, the build-up of fatty deposits and bags under the eyes, drooping lower eyelids, and wrinkles. This procedure can correct the effects of aging, both in terms of its aesthetic impact and in regard to vision.
Types of Eyelid Surgery
The type of eyelid surgery you will require is based on your aesthetic goals.
Upper Eyelid Surgery: Removes sagging, excess skin, fat, or puffiness around the upper eyelids
Lower Eyelid: Addresses puffy bags below the eyes
Double Eyelid: A combination of both upper and lower eyelid surgery to address all concerns at once
Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure that can be performed with local anesthesia and IV sedation, or under general anesthesia. Depending on if you are having upper or lower eyelid surgery, your surgeon will make an incision either along the crease of the upper lid or just below the lower lash line. Fat, muscles, and skin around the eyes are then removed, repositioned, or redistributed to create a more youthful appearance. Incisions are then closed and surgery is completed.
Ideal candidates for eyelid surgery are those who wish to reduce the appearance of sagging skin or excess fat around the eyelids. Eyelid surgery does not address the appearance of crow’s feet or drooping eyebrows. Eyelid surgery candidates must be non-smokers and in good health.
