Eyes are the focal point of the face and garners maximum attention. One does not surely give a strong impression with bags beneath eyes, sagging eyebrows as it comes across as a sad and tired expression. With eyelid surgery now, one can ‘brighten’ the face and restore that youthful appearance all over again. Blepharoplasty, coupled with facelift surgery gives one back its youth all over again.
In Blepharoplasty, what the surgeon does is removes excess skin and muscle, and repositions the fat under the skin to keep a check on the puffiness of our eyes. Incision may or may not be required for this procedure depending upon the patient’s requirement. Incisions, if required, are hidden beneath lash lines or get camouflaged with the natural folds. If the removal of skin is not necessary, the incisions may well be kept hidden inside the lower eyelid.
Correction of brow lift is also a part of eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty. Since the eyelid is gentle, swelling or discoloration after surgery is a common phenomenon. As advised by doctor, eyes should be protected from light for few days after surgery. Once the eyes are allowed to recover, one can resume wearing make-up or contact lenses after a brief period of time.
