Eyelids and Palpebral Bags

When considering this surgery the doctor must evaluate the skin of the upper and lower eyelids, bags around the eyes, the location of the eye brows and the skin between the cheeks and the lower eyelid.

As people age, the eyelid skin stretches, muscles weaken, and fat accumulates around the eyes, causing "bags" above and below.

The purpose of blepharoplasty is to remove fat--usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes - features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision.


Eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia

The purpose of this procedure is to separates the skin from underlying fatty tissue and muscle, to remove excess fat, and to trim sagging skin and muscle.

Usually the incisions are performed following the natural lines of the eyelids; in the creases of the upper lids, and just below the lashes in the lower lids, leaving nearly invisible scars.
If you have a pocket of fat beneath your lower eyelids but don't need to have any skin removed, the incision is made inside your lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar.

The patient need to rest for 48 hours following the surgery and should restrain from physical activity during the following 15 days. Stitches will be removed after 3 to 6 days

Edema or occasionally small haematomas may appear in the area which will disappear during the first two weeks

When eyelid surgery is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are infrequent and usually minor

The minor complications that occasionally follow blepharoplasty include difficulty closing the eyes, tearing or blurred vision.

Eyelid surgery won't remove crow's feet or other wrinkles or lift sagging eyebrows. The wrinkles could be corrected with a skin peeling, a facial lift surgery or Botox. A forehead lift or brow lift could correct the sagging eyebrows.
