Droopy eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes can make you look tired and older than you are. Eyelid surgery also referred to as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that removes fat, excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.
You are a good candidate for the procedure if you have the followings:
• Sagging or loose excess skin on the upper eyelids, potentially impairing your vision. Puffiness in the upper eyelids that make your eyes look tired.
• Excess skin on the lower eyelids.
• Crepe-like fine wrinkles on the lower eyelid.
• Bags, puffiness or dark circles under your eyes.
• Drooping lower eyelids.
Eyelid surgery usually takes 1 to 2 hours; the amount of time needed depends on the extent of work required.
Incisions are made in the creases in the upper eyelids and underneath the lashes in the lower lids.
When the procedure is complete, your surgeon will lubricate your eyes with an ointment and apply a bandage. You should expect your eyelids to feel sore and tight when the anesthetic wears off. You will start to bruise after about the third day following surgery. Bruises are usually gone a week or two after surgery. Your stitches will be removed after about five days, and the swelling and bruises will slowly diminish thereafter. Scars
The incision is made on the inside of the eyelid so there are no stitches to remove and consequently no scar line to heal.
