Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) is the
most popular cosmetic surgery because the eyes are the focal point of
one's face. Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin, muscle and
fatty tissue from both the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) operation is
performed for those who wish to have double eyelids to make their eyes
look bigger, and remove unsightly eye-bags and drooping skin. It can
also improve the vision of older patients who have hooding of their
upper eyelids. However the eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) will not remove "crow's feet",
wrinkles, and dark circle under the eyes or lift sagging eyebrows.
Double Eyelid Surgery
Most popular operation. Carried out under
local anesthetic (like the dentist) operation time 45 minutes and rest
for 15 minutes; out-patient basis. The surgical procedure on your upper
eyelids will create the double eyelid effect. Your surgeon will remove
the excess fat and skin, thus resulting in bigger eyes. Excess skin and
fat removed and skin fold created resulting in bigger, lovelier and more
lively eyes. Suggested time off: 10 days
Lower Eyelid Reduction
Done for baggy or sagging eyelids with
excess skin & fat. The surgical procedure on your lower eyelids
will remove eye-bags and smoothen the eyelids. Carried out under local
anesthetic (out-patient basis). Operation time 1 hour and rest for 1/2
hour. Suggested time off: 2 weeks.
You will be given local anesthesia and
IV sedation before the eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) so that you will not feel any pain. The
eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) should take about 1-2 hours and you may return home immediately.
At home, you will need to apply cold pack over your eyelids for 24
hours. However you may shower and wash right away. You will need to have
follow-up consultations with your doctor on the 3rd day and your
stitches will be removed after 1 week. You should be able to return to
work the next day after eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty).
After the eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty), you may experience
some swelling in the first 2 weeks and your scar will not be noticeable
after a few months. However the upper eyelid surgery might cause
asymmetry, and the lower eyelids surgery might result in too much skin
being removed, causing the eyelids to be pulled down.
