* Blepharoplasty and Cosmetic upper eyelids surgery:
In cosmetic upper eyelid surgery, the plastic surgeon first marks the individual lines and creases of the lids in order to keep the scars as invisible as possible along these natural folds. The incision is made and the excess fat, muscles and loose skin are removed together with the puffiness and bags from the interior corner of the eyelid. The residual scars of blepharoplasty will fade away in few months and will eventually be concealed behind the natural eye fold.
*Blepharoplasty and Cosmetic lower eyelids surgery:
The incision in this case is made inside the lower eyelid and excess fatty material which cause the eyelid puffiness with the excess skin and muscles are trimmed away before the incision is closed with fine sutures. In this case, the incision is in an inconspicuous site along the lashline and the smile creases of the lower eyelid. The sutures are self- dissolving and leave no visible scars.
Blepharoplasty is usually done with local anaesthetics in order to quickly regain your natural vision. Under normal conditions, it takes 1 to 1 & 1/2 hours depending on individual cases.
Post operative care:
After blepharoplasty, the eyelids are relatively bruised for 1 to 2 weeks, so you may need to wear dark glasses in the meantime. The stitches are removed on the fourth to the sixth day.
Usually for several years, sometimes permanent. The puffiness and bags under the eye will disappear completely but as the skin stretches with age, trace of scars may persist after a year in some cases.
Blepharoplasty is often the most popular surgery with the most refreshing results.
