Are you considering an aesthetic plastic surgery? also known as eyelid lift. It was the 4th most popular cosmetic surgeries performed in 2016. There are many reasons someone undergoing an upper blepharoplasty may be purely cosmetic to reduce the appearance of aging, wrinkled or droopy eyes. Or it can also be also functional to help reduce obstruction of vision by overhanging skin. It also helps reduce tired looking and fatigued eyes and help reduce puffiness as well. Eyelid lifts can have a drastic effect on the face and improve a person’s self-confidence.
Upper blepharoplasty is a procedure that involves resection of redundant skin and/or musculature of the upper eyelid. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and takes 1-2 hours. This is one of the safest procedures. The eyelid is cut, and the excess skin is removed. Fat is sometimes removed which may help with aesthetic contour in cosmetic eyelid surgery.
When the procedure is complete, the eyelid is closed with sutures. Luckily, the eyelids are one of the easiest places to heal & lower eyelid scars are usually hidden by lashes & barely seen, while upper eyelid scars follow the natural creases.
Typically, patients may have mild bruising for about a week. Some surgeons may recommend avoidance of makeup for 2 weeks. Our surgeon Dr Rohit has a keen interest in performing this procedure. He says that it is one of the most impactful treatments and most of the issues can be successfully corrected with eyelid lift surgery.
