Blepharoplastic Surgery

Thursday, 07 May 2009

Blepharoplastic SurgeryAny woman wants to be beautiful at any age. As it is well known, demand breeds supply. Nowadays, there are so many options to preserve our beauty. On the one hand, it's not bad as there is a choice. On the other hand, it's hard to choose: how can one know that the clinic provides all necessary help? There's only one way - to find out more about the clinic, to have a look at the license and to see the results of the work performed by the clinic's surgeons.


Blepharoplastic surgery and its types

Eyelid surgery or belpharoplasty is a technique used to correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags under the eyes. It helps to eliminate any defect, including lines and eyelid «bags», to correct the features that make you look older and tired. It is performed separately or in combination with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift or a browlift. Blepharoplasty helps to eliminate skin bags under eyes, dark circles and upper lid sagging. Minor defects like wrinkles in the eye area and crow's feet are not the case for blepharoplasty and demand other intervention.

For reference, there are cosmetic and reconstructive eyelid surgeries of upper and lower lids, sometimes they are performed simultaneously.

Indications for blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty can be both functional and cosmetic surgical procedure intended to reshape the upper or lower eyelid by the removal or repositioning of excess tissue as well as by reinforcement of surrounding muscles. When an advanced amount of upper eyelid skin is present, the skin may hang over the eyelashes and cause a loss of peripheral vision. Patients with a less severe amount of excess skin may have a similar procedure performed for cosmetic reasons. Hereditary factor is also of great importance as well as anti-age skin care. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is almost always performed for cosmetic reasons such as to improve puffy lower eyelid «bags» and reduce the wrinkling of skin, which are the additional indications for performing blepharoplasty.

How eyelid surgery is performed

The procedure normally takes place in a surgeon's office facility but can also be done in a hospital. It is usually performed under general anesthetic. The doctor makes incisions along the natural lines of your eyelids: in the creases of your upper eyelids, and just below the lashes in the lower lids. This minimizes any visible scarring after the surgery. Working through these incisions, the surgeon then separates the skin from the underlying fatty tissue and muscle, removes excess fat, and trims any sagging skin and muscle that is present. The incisions are then sealed with very small sutures. Over time the scars become pale and almost invisible.

After the procedure

The patient can usually leave the hospital on the day of surgery. The eyes and eyelids will be covered with ointment and a bandage for 4-6 hours. They may feel tight and sore as the anesthesia wears off, though the discomfort is easily controlled with pain medication. The head should be kept elevated as much as possible for several days and cold packs applied to reduce swelling and bruising. Eyedrops may be recommended to reduce burning or itching of the eyes. Normal vision should be restored after 2 to 3 days. Edema may last for two weeks; any bruising that is present should completely disappear anywhere from two weeks to a month. The stitches must be removed 3 to 5 days after the surgery: shinplasters are used to protect the scars. Most of the patients return to normal activities in 7-10 days after the surgery. During the recovery process, you may find that your eyes are more sensitive to sunlight and wind so be sure to wear sunglasses. Now you may use hypoallergenic makeup.

The results of blepharoplasy

After the eyelid surgery, the results last for many years and in some cases, are permanent. In most cases, the scars are absolutely invisible you'll find that blepharoplasty makes you look more alert and youthful.

Complications of eyelid surgery

One of the complications is the slight change of eye shape: patients may be unsatisfied by that fact. Eyes seem larger, outer corners somewhat droop, making the look a little sad. Sometimes excessive lower eyelid drooping occurs (extropian). You may experience some double vision or blurred vision and some swelling at the corner of the eyes. However, these are temporary symptoms that should be gone within a couple of days. Other more rare complications include difficulty closing your eyes after the surgery, and pulling down of the lower eyelid. If any of these are present for 6 months, a subsequent surgery may be required.

Other eyelid surgery complications are minimal, cases of infection and post-operative bleeding are very rare. Bruises and edema around the eyes several days after the surgery make the patients nervous, but soon completely disappear. Cornea lesions are theoretically possible but in practice are unlikely to occur.

How to choose a plastic surgery clinic

However, it's hard to define for a person that is not a specialist in medicine, if this or that clinic worth trust. The state has developed laws to protect the patients; but you have to check the license. According to the health care laws, every clinic providing medical care has to undergo medical licensing procedure. The document includes all the information about the amount of surgery permitted to that clinic. Before issuing the license the specialists estimate the resources, equipment and qualification of surgeons. The copy of the license should be displayed to the fore. Read it carefully!

It's strongly advisable to see for yourself the results of plastic surgeon's work before you trust your face to one of them.


Remember: operational equipment, instruments, suture materials, implants and qualification of plastic surgeons are absolutely identical in most of the developed countries. So, it's not reasonable to go abroad and pay tons of money for plastic surgery. Just think and make the right choice among the local clinics.
