Blepharoplasty is operation for correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids; and for aesthetically modifying the eye region of the face. With the excision and the removal, or the repositioning (or both) of excess tissues, such as skin and adipose fat and the reinforcement of the corresponding muscle and tendon tissues, the blepharoplasty procedure resolves functional and cosmetic problems of the periorbita, which is the area from the eyebrow to the upper portion of the cheek.
Blepharoplasty varies for each patient depending on its particular needs. It can be done only with the upper and lower eyelids or both regions, or eye. During the procedure the loosened, sagging appearance in the eyelid area is reduced. The functions of the eyelids, deformity and excess skin are examined before the procedure. Blepharoplasty surgery can be used to fix the bags due to loosening and sagging of the eyelid.
The operation time is usually 1-2 hours. The operation is done in full-fledged hospital under local or general anesthesia. Patiens may often leave the hospital on the same day or stay overnight in the hospital. After a few days the patients may return to their daily lifes. There may be bruises and swellings around the eye after surgery. This will happen within a few days without any treatment. Operation scars can be visible in red colur for a few months. Later, incision’s colour changes to white and can be barely visible.
