Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Am I a good candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Any one or combination of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery:
  • Excess skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids.
  • Loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids, perhaps impairing vision.
  • A puffy appearance to the upper eyelids, making the eyes look tired.
  • Excess skin and fine, crepey wrinkles of the lower eyelids.
  • Bags and dark circles under the eyes, often with a depression along the bony border of the lower eyelids.
  • Droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye).

  • Aesthetic eyelid surgery can usually correct these problems, though other treatments may also need to be considered. For example, if the upper eyelid condition is accompanied by sagging of the eyebrows, then a forehead lift may be recommended. Smoothing of crow's feet may require chemical peeling or laser resurfacing procedures. Circles beneath the eyes caused by dark pigmentation may be treated with a bleaching solution or chemical peel.

    Your Personal Consultation
    During the initial consultation, you may be asked to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. This will help your plastic surgeon to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved. You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss you medical history including previous surgeries, past and present medical conditions and current medications. It is important for you to provide complete information. High blood pressure, thyroid problems or diabetes are among the medical conditions that may increase the risks associated with eyelid surgery. Your plastic surgeon will want to know if you have allergies, especially if they affect your eyes. He or she may ask whether you have ever tried and were unable to wear contact lenses, you should bring them with you in case your surgeon wants to test your vision. It will be necessary for your surgeon to know if you were ever told by an ophthalmologist that you have a condition called "dry eye" or if you have any other problems with your eyes.

    How Blepharoplasty is performed?

    Because of individual factors, not everyone will achieve the same results from eyelid surgery. Your plastic surgeon will select the surgical technique that he or she feels will obtain the best outcome for you.
    Upper Eyelid Surgery:
    For upper eyelid surgery, generally an incision is hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid and extends slightly beyond the outside corner into the laugh lines or other existing creases. Through this incision, excess skin and fatty tissue are removed. Because the incision follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid, it will be well camouflaged when healed.

    Lower Eyelid Surgery: For lower eyelid surgery, often an incision is hidden just below the lower lashes. Through this incision, excess skin, muscle and fat are removed, or fat may be redistributed to eliminate puffiness or bulges. Other adjustments to correct special problems such as muscle laxity may be performed. As in upper eyelid surgery, the incision is well camouflaged by natural creases.

    RECOVERY: Expect some bruising and swelling during first few days and will usually subside in about 10 days to 2 weeks.

    LENGTH OF SURGERY: About 1-2 hours for upper eyelid; about 1-2 hours for the lower eyelid.
