Blepharoplasty | Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid surgery), Blepharo- stands for eyelid and -plasty stands for moulding or surgical repair. The eyelid surgery reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids and gives more youthful appearance.
Blepharoplasty is of two types-
Functional blepharoplasty: It is performed for medical reasons. A functional eyelid surgery is done to improve sight in those people whose sagging upper eyelids come in the way of their vision.
Cosmetic blepharoplasty: It is a surgical procedure that is not medically necessary and is done solely to make better your look.
At 100 Harley Street eyelid surgery is carried out under local anaesthesia with oral sedation which usually takes about two to three hours if both upper and lower eyelids are done together. During blepharoplasty, incisions are made in the natural lines of the eyelid, in the fold of the upper eyelid and along the eyelashes margin or behind the lower eyelid. Via these incisions, your surgeon will separate the skin from the underlying tissue and eliminate the excess fat, muscle and skin. After this the surgeon will close those incision with very small stitches.The stitches in the upper eyelids will stay for three to six days while lower eyelids may or may not require stitches as if incisions are made inside your lower eyelid then incisions would not be visible. However, if incisions are made along the eyelash margin the incision line fades after some time. At last your surgeon may also use a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser or erbium laser to enhance the surgery by reconfiguring skin and smoothing out any remaining wrinkles in the eyelid and eyebrow area.Those people who have droopy eyebrows, the brow lift procedure also can be considered to achieve more youthful look.
Blepharoplasty can enhance your look and develop your self-confidence. However, it can not alter your facial structure. You can see your final surgery result just after four to six weeks. Upper eyelid surgery can last at least five to ten years which depends on your health and other factors while lower eyelid surgery rarely needs to be repeated.
