Eyelid Surgery

Wobbly upper eyelid skin and lower eyelid creases are unwanted to the face since they make someone look weary and tired. Individuals with this predicament often go through an eyelid surgery.Eyelid surgery or also known as Blepharoplasty can correct wrinkling, sagging of the eyelids. It can also reduce the puffiness of the upper eyelids and the under eye bags thus leading to a refreshed and invigorated look.  An upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery or a combination can be done depending on your personal needs.

Before an eyelid surgery, we will complete a detailed medical evaluation of your health and medical history. We will also require a certificate from an Ophthalmologist to determine if you have eye conditions that can make Blepharoplasty dangerous for you.The eyelid surgery is preferably performed on individuals who are physically healthy and a nonsmoker.The patient will be advised to avoid tobacco products, alcohol beverages, definite blood-thinning supplements and medications for a number of days before the eyelid surgery.To begin with, the patient will be placed under the influence of general or local anaesthesia. The surgeon will create incisions inside the lower eyelid and/or the upper eyelid crease. Repositioning of the muscle, fat and skin will be executed then the removal of the excess tissues. Once completed, the incisions are closed. The entire procedure usually takes one to three hours.

Instantly following the eyelid surgery, discomfort, numbness, and swelling can be experienced but these can be managed with prescribed medication. To control swelling, aid proper healing and support the new form, soft compression garments are placed to the surgical sites within a number of days. The head should be kept elevated; this will help speed up the recovery.The patient is refrained from contact lenses for two to three weeks. It would normally take a few months for the final results to be completely visible, but it is worth the wait.
