Sometime the eyes have it and sometimes they don’t, if you are looking to improve the overall look at your eyes this is a great place to start. The fact is overtime, the aging process can take its toll on your eyes. Aging alone cause your eyelids to sag combine that with bags and puffiness and you come up with tired and older than you really are. That’s part of the reason why almost a quarter of a million people had eyelid surgery or what’s known as blepharoplasty last year in United States.

Here are the four types of blepharoplasty you may want to consider. There is upper and lower eyelid surgery, laser eyelid surgery and for those with Asian ancestry Asian eyelid surgery. Check with a qualified plastic surgeon to see which procedure is best for you. As a general rule here is how eyelid surgery works.

The standard surgical technique usually involves removing or redistributing fat deposits as well as removing excess skin and muscle from regions of upper and lower eyelids. An eyelid surgery procedure may last about an hour or two depending on extent of the treatment. It might be performed under local or general anesthesia depending on your plastic surgeon’s preference.

You will probably experience some discomfort, swelling and bruising which can be treated with cold compresses and pain medication. Non-absorbable sutures are typically removed in five to seven days and you will begin to notice an improvement in the bruising around your eyes in seven to ten days. Although you will feel well enough to return to work in about a week, you should continue to avoid strenuous activities such as heavy lifting or exercise for at least two weeks following the procedure.

You will start to notice the results from your procedure within a few weeks as the bruising and swelling continue to fade, while you will likely to have some small scars which are usually well hidden by the contours of the eyelid. The scars may be slightly recognizable at first but will fade over several months to a very faint white line. The result of eyelid surgery generally last for years. For some the positive effects of their blepharoplasty procedure are permanent allowing them to enjoy a lifetime of beautiful looking eyes.

1. What is a Blepharoplasty?
Also known as eyelid surgery, lower blepharoplasty is an operative procedure that rejuvenates the eyes. It is achieved through removal of excess skin and/or muscle and removal or repositioning of excess fat from the eyelids.


2. How is the surgery performed?
Blepharoplasty may be done under a local or general anaesthesia. This may depend on your own preferences, but also on whether it is being combined with any other surgery. During Blepharoplasty, incisions are made within the natural creases of the eyelids or on the inside of the eyelids. The surgeon removes some of the herniated fat and excess skin and then closes the incision with very fine sutures.


3. Will I have bruising after lower blepharoplasty?
Most patients experience some level of bruising and swelling after surgery. This can last several weeks, depending on the person. Many patients are presentable and return to work within one to two weeks.


4. Will there be any scars after the surgery?
There are scars involved with Blepharoplasty just as there is with the majority of other types of surgery. Normally though the scars are hardly seen after a few months and this is because the incisions are put in the normal creases and folds of the upper and lower eyelids. For those patients that only have to have fat removed from their lower eyelids may have incisions made on the inside of their eyelid and therefore the scars are undetectable.


5. Will lower blepharoplasty help with the dark circles under my eyes?
If the circles are caused by shadows cast by large bags beneath the eyes and/or hollowness in the tear trough area, fat repositioning or using fillers during lower eyelid surgery can improve these dark circles. However, there are also many other reasons for dark circles beneath the eyes, including allergies, thin skin overlying prominent muscle, swollen veins, and hyperpigmentation of the skin. These will not be improved by lower eyelid surgery.


6. When will I be able to see the results?
After the swelling and bruising has subsided, you will be able to see a definite difference. Because every individual is unique, this time period varies. Most patients who’ve had their procedure with Clinic Center improve within one or two weeks.


7. When can I exercise after my lower blepharoplasty?
Although you may feel ready to resume your normal physical activity within days after surgery, you should refrain from exercise for a week after surgery. During the second week after surgery, you can begin to engage in lighter exercises, avoiding prolonged aerobic workouts and heavy lifting. After three weeks, you should be able to safely resume any and all of your usual physical activities.
