Cosmetic eyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. In fact, it’s so popular that it is estimated that more than one hundred thousand people undergo blepharoplasty every year.
Blepharoplasty usually involves removal of excess fat or skin from upper and lower eyelids, thus restoring a refreshed look and giving the eyes a more plump and youthful appearance.
Specifically, blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can help treat the following:
- Excess fat deposit under the eyes, that makes eyes appear puffy
- Sagging or drooping skin that deforms the natural shape of the eyelids
- Wrinkles and fine lines under the eyes
- Bags under the eyes
The simple procedure usually takes around one hour, and is performed with local anesthesia with sedation. Small incisions are made in and around the upper and lower eyelids – to minimize visibility, incisions are always made around natural skin creases and folds. Once the incisions are in place, excess fat and skin are trimmed away, and fine sutures are used to close the gaps. In “transconjunctival” eyelid surgery, which deals exclusively with the removal of excess fat, no sutures are used.
After the procedure, no bandages are applied, and sutures, when they are used, are usually removed within four days. It’s observed that most blepharoplasty patients are up and about in one or two days of the procedure.
