Blepharoplasty I Unveiling the Magic of Blepharoplasty | HEG


Minimize Age. Maximize Beauty.

What is Blepharoplasty ?

Blepharoplasty is a type of surgery that removes excess skin from the eyelids. With age, eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess skin and fat can gather above and below your eyelids. This can cause sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under the eyes.

Blepharoplasty might be an option for:

  •       Baggy or droopy upper eyelids
  •       Excess skin of the upper eyelids that partially blocks peripheral vision
  •       Excess skin on the lower eyelids
  •       Bags under the eyes

Blepharoplasty is a surgery performed to remove heavy, sagging skin and bulging fat that can make you look older and more tired than you actually are. Aesthetic benefits of this procedure can take years off the appearance of the eyes.  This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons. It’s also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision.

The eye is an important component of facial aesthetics, and blepharoplasty can play a vital positive role in facial harmony and the perception of aging. Blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly performed facial cosmetic procedures. Symptoms such as tired-looking eyes, excess skin, droopy eyelids, or circles around the eyes may benefit from blepharoplasty. It can also be combined with other facial and skin rejuvenation procedures such as brow or mid-face lift, lasers or chemical skin resurfacing.

Blepharoplasty can be done to rejuvenate the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both.

Procedure types

Upper Eyelid Surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty)

Upper Eyelid Surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty)

An Upper Eyelid Lift or Upper Blepharoplasty is a specialist eyelid surgery procedure that removes the folds of loose skin and bulges of protruding fat which sit over the upper eyelids, to produce a less-tired and more youthful appearance.

As a result of the downward pull of gravity and loss of elasticity in the skin, the skin and muscles around the eye weaken and stretch resulting in an accumulation of loose skin and protrusion of fat resulting in “eye-bags” or a hooded appearance of the upper eyelid skin. This trait may run in families and may be accelerated by the effects of smoking, sun-exposure and weight-loss.

Lower Eyelid Surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty)

Lower lid blepharoplasty is one of the most complex procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Here we provide a comprehensive and systematic approach to the lower eyelid, which is critical for lower lid blepharoplasty success.

The commonly perceived aging changes in the lower eyelid are a natural consequence of the anatomic attachments and age-related changes in the periorbital tissues. A variety of techniques have evolved to address cosmetic concerns in the lower eyelid including subtractive blepharoplasty techniques, elevation of ptotic eyelid and midface tissues, and the injection or implantation of autogenous or alloplastic materials to diminish lower eyelid “bags.” Greater anatomic understanding of the pathogenesis of aging changes in the lower eyelid has led to more anatomically conservative and appropriate cosmetic surgical treatments. The decline in purely subtractive surgical techniques in blepharoplasty surgery and the advent of fat repositioning and other volume enhancement techniques has improved surgical outcomes.

Frequently asked questions

HEG skilled surgeons will evaluate your individual needs and determine if you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty. However, some indications that you may be a candidate include:

  • Your upper eyelids sag and hang over your eyes
  • You have wrinkles or excess skin in the lower eyelids
  • You have bags under your eyes
  • You have droopy lower eyelids
  • The excess skin in the upper eyelid impairs your vision

HEG experienced surgeons make incisions that are carefully hidden in the natural folds of the eyelids, on the inside of the lower lid, or just under the lower lash line. After they heal, these incisions are usually undetectable.

The recovery time ranges from one to four weeks. During this time, you may experience some swelling and bruising but very little discomfort. To minimize swelling, we recommend using cold compresses and keeping your head elevated. Sutures are typically removed within one week, and makeup can be applied after that.

You should notice an improvement in the area around the eyes immediately following the surgery. However, the final results may take up to four weeks to fully manifest once the swelling has subsided. Many patients are able to return to work after a week.

Your vision may be blurry following the surgery due to cornea swelling and the use of eye lubricants that we provide. However, your vision should recover completely within a few days.

The results of eyelid surgery are long-lasting. However, over time, the skin elasticity and the facial muscles of the eyes will continue to change in response to the environment, sunlight, and the aging process. As more time passes, the brow could drop or descend enough to cause excess skin to reappear on the upper eyelid. In this case, a brow lift rather than a second eyelid surgery may be necessary.

You can work from home by computer or phone the day after your blepharoplasty. The sutures will come out in one week, and there can be swelling and bruising around the eyes. You can wear eyeglasses to hide the sutures, or if you do not mind if someone sees you like that, then you can return to work after three days. Otherwise, we recommend planning on taking about a week off of work.
