Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery (technically called
blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove fat--usually along with excess skin
and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.
Eyelid surgery can correct
drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes - features that make you
look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your
vision. However, it won't remove crow's feet or other wrinkles, eliminate
dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows.
While it can add an
upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes, it will not erase evidence of your ethnic
or racial heritage. Blepharoplasty can be done alone, or in conjunction with
other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or brow lift.
If you're considering eyelid surgery, this information will give you a basic
understanding of the procedure-when it can help, how it's performed, and
what results you can expect. It can't answer all of your questions, since a
lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Please ask your
surgeon about anything you don't understand.
Blepharoplasty can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it
won't necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other
people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think
carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.
The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically
healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in their expectations. Most
are 35 or older, but if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may
decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age.
A few medical conditions make blepharoplasty more risky. They include
thyroid problems such as hypothyroidism and Graves' disease, dry eye or lack
of sufficient tears, high blood pressure or other circulatory disorders,
cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. A detached retina or glaucoma is also
reason for caution; check with your ophthalmologist before you have surgery.
