Blepharoplasty

(upper & lower)

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that fixes saggy eyelids by eliminating extra skin, fat, and muscle. During the course of aging, your eyelids sag and the muscles that sustain them become weaker. A consequence is bags under your eyes, drooping eyebrows, and saggy upper lids caused by excess fat accumulating along each eyelid. In addition to making you seem older, excessively drooping skin surrounding your eyes can limit your peripheral vision, particularly in the top and outer regions of your range of view. In medical aesthetics, non-surgical blepharoplasty is a term that encompasses a wide range of non-surgical forms of treatment.

Eyelid surgery is most popular among people who are seeking anti-aging treatments. As we get older, the skin around our eyes begins to wrinkle and sag. However, if you find this unpleasant, you may want to consider a procedure like this. Blepharoplasty is also sought after by those with sagging eyebrows and bags beneath the eyes. It may be performed for reasons other than cosmetics for some people. If sagging skin is interfering with your eyesight, you may be a contender for this treatment. Some people may claim that the sagging skin obstructs their view when glancing upwards.

7DMC Plastic Surgery is focused on ensuring that you receive the best and safest care possible. Our highly qualified and professional team will guide you through the entire blepharoplasty procedure in a smooth and comfortable manner, allowing you to make the right decision. You must first meet with our plastic surgeon to explore your issues and intended outcomes for your eyelids. Several tests will be required by our surgeon before this surgery is performed on you. Your eyes will be examined and measured during a physical exam. Sight and abrasion checks are also carried out.

It's critical to inform our surgeon about any medicines you're taking whether it is prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, or any herbal supplements. You will almost certainly be told to stop taking any medications that boost your risk of bleeding. For several weeks before your blepharoplasty, you'll also have to give up smoking for health reasons.

In certain cases, general anesthesia may be required. A numbing chemical is frequently injected into your eyelids by the surgeon. First, the top eyelids are treated. As a result of this procedure, our surgeon will create a small incision to remove extra skin along with some fat and muscle. After the incision is closed, our surgeon may relocate some of these tissues to different places around the eye.

Lower lid blepharoplasty usually includes extracting fat, which leads to under-eye bags, and often a small bit of skin removal. Depending on the eyelid type, the cut can be made either on the inside or outside of the lower eyelids. It's possible for the lower eyelid to be constricted or attached to the bony skeleton in some individuals.

Comparatively, the recovery time for blepharoplasty is short. Unless there are issues, you'll be sent home the same day if there are no adverse effects. Shortly following eyelid surgery, it's crucial to take it easy for a few days. Swelling and discomfort are possible side effects of the treatment. Be sure to wash the skin softly and maintain it clean as well. Once you've recovered after a few days, you must visit the surgeon again for an assessment and have any stitches removed, if necessary.
