Blepharoplasty -(BLEF-uh-roe-plas-tee) is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age your eyelids stretch and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes.
Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.
Surgical Procedure - If you have surgery on your upper and lower eyelids, the surgeon generally works on your upper lids first. Incision is given along the fold of the eyelid and excess skin, muscle and fat is removed and the incision is closed. If your upper eyelid droops close to your pupil, your surgeon may do blepharoplasty with a procedure called ptosis (TOE-sis) that provides additional support to the eyebrow muscle.
After the procedure
After surgery you spend time in a recovery room, where you are monitored for complications. You can leave later that day to recuperate at home. After surgery you may temporarily experience blurred vision, watery eyes, some sensitivity, double vision, puffiness or numbness in the eyelids. Pain is generally not there as painkillers are prescribed post discharge. Use ice packs on your eyes for 10 minutes every hour the night after surgery. The following day, use ice packs on your eyes four to five times throughout the day. Gently clean your eyelids and use prescribed eyedrops or ointments and avoid strenuous activities like aerobics, jogging, swimming for a week after the surgery.
What you can expect
Results of the Surgery - Many people express satisfaction with the results of blepharoplasty, such as a more rested and youthful appearance and more self-confidence. For some people, results of surgery may last a lifetime. For others, droopy eyelids may recur.
Bruising and swelling generally subside in 10 to 14 days, which may be when you feel comfortable going out in public again. Scars from the surgical cuts may take months to fade. Take care to protect your delicate eyelid skin from too much sun exposure.
