BLEPHAROPLASTY

(Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery)
Patients with puffy and sagging eyelids and pouches beneath the eyes are best candidates for this operation. It is usually done under local anesthesia and takes 1-2 hours. Incisions are made in the natural skin folds and creases. The excess skin is removed conservatively and the bulging fat is usually repositioned to correct the groove under the eyes and keep the natural youthful appearance. The fat is rarely excised and fine suture are placed. A limited or comprehensive cheek lift can be added to the surgery which makes the area around the eyes more youthful and rejuvenated. It however makes the eyelid surgery more complicated and recovery hence is more prolonged. Some bruising and swelling occur that subsides in 10-14 days. Sutures are removed in 4-5 days. Return to work is usually in one to two week. Complications are rare and discussed by the doctor.
