What is a blepharoplasty ?
This is the technical term used by surgeons to describe the operation to remove excess skin. It can usually be dine under a local anaesthetic and will take about 45 mins. The wounds are very carefully stitched with a running stitch and this is removed in the clinic by me about 7 days later.
Upper Blepharoplasty (Upper eyelids)
This is a procedure to remove excess skin and sometimes fat from the upper eyelid. A number od people as they age notice they develop a tired and drawn look and this can frequently be due to heavy looking upper eyes. Ladies often say that they have to hold there eyebrow up to put eye shadow on which then gets transferred to the upper part of the eyelid or the make up is hidden by the skin which hangs over.
Will I be bruised and swollen?
There is nearly always some bruising when certain on the eyes as they are so very delicate but this doe tend to settle pretty quickly and most ladies find that they can cover the worst of it with make up in about 7 days. For men it means wearing sun glasses to cover up.
Is it suitable for everyone?
No. It is very important in your assessment to assess the position of the eyebrow. The heavy appearance can sometimes be due to the brow having slipped down and not excess skin in the eyelid. A blepharoplasty is the wrong operation for a low brow as it will not correct the problem and could cause a very odd look. A brow lift would then be the correct operation and this is something that can be achieved in many different ways. Botox can be used to lift the brow temporarily but must be repeated. Other ways use incisions in the brow or forehead to achieve a lift or it can form part of a facelift.
Will I have visible scars?
The scars from a blepharoplasty are very well concealed in the natural lid crease that we all have and then it is placed into crows feet lines on the outside of the eye. Generally all wounds are well healed by about 10 days.
Are there any risks?
All surgery carries a degree of risk. Bleeding and bruising are the main issues and rare risks are damage to the muscle that opens the eye.
Is it best to remove fat?
No. removal of too much fat will produce a hollowed and sunken eye that is not attractive. It also increase the danger of bleeding behind the eye, which is the most serious complication. Small blues fat in the corner of the ye can be safely removed and can enhance the overall result.
What if I want to be asleep for the procedure?
You can have the operation done under General Anaesthesia but this is more expensive and involves you recovering from the GA. This is therefore usually only does when it is being perfumed in conjunction with other procedures
