Eyelid Surgery

Introduction

Eyelid surgery, also called Eyelift surgery or Blepharoplasty, is majorly done for cosmetic purposes. It removes excess fat, skin, and muscles from the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure reduces puffiness and bags beneath the eyes, giving you a more youthful appearance. The process takes between 1-3 hours.

At times our medical experts suggest eyelid surgery for vision improvement as well.

However, considering the risk involved, the surgery option is only considered if other courses of treatments (non-surgical and less risky) proved to be unsuccessful.

There are 2 types of Blepharoplasties:

  • Cosmetic Blepharoplasty
  • Functional Blepharoplasty

As per the reports, there is approximately a 10-12% rise in cosmetic surgeries. Maximum people undergo eyelid surgery when they are in their 30s and 40s. Generally, there is no age limit for this surgery, but our surgeons advise waiting until the age of 18 years or older.

Reasons

A few of the primary reasons to consider eyelid surgery are:

  • Weak eyesight Saggy eyelids can impair frontal and peripheral vision, which hamper the ability to see and perform daily tasks.
  • Bulky upper eyelidHaving heavy upper lids can stress your eye muscles and eyebrows that can lead to headaches.
  • Tired appearanceDrooping eyelids is one of the reasons that make you look tired all the time. Furthermore, it makes you seem like an aged and lethargic person.
  • Loose skin around the eye areaLoose skin leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, which make you appear much older than you actually are.
