Blepharoplasty is one of most popular facial contouring surgeries worldwide for men and women. Aimed at redefining the shape of your eyes, it leaves you looking younger and refreshed. This effect is achieved by removing excess skin, fat and tissue from the upper and/or lower eyelids.
The skin surrounding our eyes is fragile and tends to easily become loose with age, forming wrinkles. Aging eyelids impact the overall personality of a person, making them appear older than the real age. For women, it is also hard to use makeup with droopy eyelids. Problems such as droopy eyelids, eyebags, puffiness, fine lines, wrinkles – can all be addressed via Blepharoplasty.
While eyelid surgery is widely done for cosmetic reasons, it is also often done for medical reasons. Excess hanging skin on their upper eyelids can affect eyesight, preventing people from seeing clearly. Correcting the problem with an eyelid surgery can help such people see clearly.
Blepharoplasty is often combined with face lift, brow lift, and/or fillers to achieve an even more dramatic impact on appearance. It is also combined with ptosis surgery for people whose droopy upper eyelids require tightening of the eye muscles and tendon.
Blepharoplasty is done either under local anesthesia or IV sedation. During the surgery, your plastic surgeon will mark your body and make incisions on the part/s from where excess skin/ fat/ tissue is to be extracted.
For upper eyelid surgery, the plastic surgeon will make an incision in the natural fold of the upper eyelid. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision is made just under the lower lash line. Through these incisions, the surgeon removes the excess skin, fat and tissue. The remaining tissues are then tightened and the incisions are closed. The result is tighter skin around the eyes which makes you look youthful and rejuvenated.
Blepharoplasty is indicated for men and women who have excess skin on the upper eyelid that blocks their field of vision; puffiness in the upper eyelids making them look constantly tired; extremely narrow or uneven upper eye surface which does not allow for makeup application; or droopiness, eyebags, or excess skin and fine lines on the lower eyelids.
Blepharoplasty is not meant for lifting sagging eyebrows, removing dark circles, or correcting crow’s feet.
The ideal candidate should be a healthy person who does not have any long-standing or serious eye condition. He or she should not have any medical condition that could interfere with the healing of the wound.
Blepharoplasty cannot be performed on people with cardiovascular or thyroid issues, or those whose eye orbital structure is not conducive for the surgery.
Prior to ensuring your candidature for the Blepharoplasty, your blepharoplasty surgeon will review your medical history and past and present health condition. You will have to discuss the medication you are on, including any herbal supplements.
As a possible Blepharoplasty candidate, you must have realistic expectations about your resultant appearance after the procedure. You must stop smoking prior to the surgery and after the surgery, as tobacco can slow down the blood flow to the skin and thereby slow down the healing process.
The surgery will show desirable results only on people who are generally healthy and do not have any previous history of having cardiac issues, pulmonary emboli, excessive bleeding, seizures, immunodeficiency disorders, or deep vein thrombosis. People with such conditions are discouraged from undergoing this procedure due to a higher risk of surgical complications.
People who are on certain anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant drugs are also discouraged from undergoing an eyelid surgery.
Blepharoplasty types/ techniques are categorized as:
Upper Eyelid Surgery or Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty: Upper eyelid lift/ surgery is usually done under local anesthesia with or without sedation.
Heavy/ drooping upper eyelids, puffiness, aged appearance, and obstruction to the field of vision are corrected by this surgery.
“Asian eyelid surgery” or “double eyelid surgery” is a type of upper eyelid surgery that is done to enhance the upper eyelid crease in people of Asian origin to westernize the look of their eyes.
The incision for an upper eyelid surgery is made in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. Excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids is removed through the incisions to achieve the desired results. Muscle repositioning may be involved in some cases.
Lower Eyelid Surgery or Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty: Lower Blepharoplasty is usually done under local anesthesia with sedation, though in some cases requiring excessive correction, general anesthesia may be needed.
This surgery helps to reduce eyebags, puffiness, and correct fine lines on the lower eyelids.
The incision for a lower eyelid surgery is made just under the lower eyelash line. Excess skin and fat from the lower eyelids is removed through the incisions to provide smooth lower eyelid contours. Fat redistribution and/or muscle tightening may be needed in some cases.
Transconjunctival Eyelid Surgery or Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty: Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty is usually done under local anesthesia with sedation.
This surgery helps to reduce eyebags for people with moderate excess fat deposits, without requiring any skin removal. This technique does not involve skin tightening.
The transconjunctival incision is made inside the lower eyelid and is therefore not visible. Excess fat from the lower eyelids is removed through the incisions.
The type/ technique of Blepharoplasty needed for you will be determined by your surgeon taking into consideration your facial anatomy, your orbital structure, the type and extent of correction needed – fat/ tissue/ skin/ muscle, and other relevant factors.
The cost of Blepharoplasty in London depends on the following factors:
- Skill and experience of the plastic surgeon
- Standard of the clinic/ hospital where the surgery will be performed
- The treatment area/s – upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both
- Extent of correction needed – fat/ skin/ tissue/ muscle tightening
- Whether the procedure is combined with other facial contouring surgeries or procedures
It is advised to get an initial consultation from a specialist plastic surgeon to know the cost applicable to your case and your eligibility for the procedure.
At our accredited clinic in London, Blepharoplasty is mostly performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation.
Most people are able to go back to work within a week.
Blepharoplasty is a delicate procedure and must be performed only with an experienced plastic surgeon. In the hands of a skilled blepharoplasty surgeon, the procedure is safe, but the following complications may be seen:
Infection Pain Asymmetry Scarring Swelling Temporary eyelid numbness Internal bleeding Hematoma (fluid accumulation under the skin) Contour irregularities Dry eyes Double/ blurred vision Retinal detachment Temporary inability to close the eyes Lid lag or ectropian (lower lid folding/ rolling outwards) Vision loss
Most patients experience pain and discomfort after the surgery when anesthesia effects diminish. You will start to feel comfortable after 2-3 days.
Immediately after the Blepharoplasty, the incision locations will look red, bruised, uneven, swollen, or discolored, and scarring will also be visible. It is normal to feel some loss of sensation in the treated areas after the Blepharoplasty. This temporary numbness will go away once the part is completely healed.
You will be prescribed antibiotics to avoid infection and ointments/ eye drops to lubricate the eyes and prevent dryness. During your first week of recovery, you can expect issues with pain and bruising. The pain is managed with prescribed medications and the bruising through cold compresses. You should get plenty of rest during this time.
After the first week of recovery, it is necessary to do a follow-up visit with your plastic surgeon to monitor your progres and to check the incision sites.
Post-surgery, there will be an immediate visible improvement in the shape and appearance of your treated area, though there will be bruising and swelling that may last for 2-4 weeks. The final results from your Blepharoplasty will typically be visible between 4-6 weeks after the procedure.
Blepharoplasty results are typically long-lasting. Many people get the benefit of lifelong results. However, changes in weight and aging can affect the appearance of your eyes. Combining a Brow Lift with the eyelid surgery can help to maintain results for longer.
For best results, strictly follow the care instructions of your plastic surgeon, prior to, and in the aftermath of the surgery.
