Why Eyelid Surgery?You probably can go for eyelid surgery if you have a droopy or baggy or saggy eyelid due to the lack of elasticity and aging. Excess skin can also cause wrinkles.
Eyelid surgery can modify your upper and lower eyelids by eliminating excess skin, muscles, and fat. It might improve your eye vision due to the elimination of excess tissue from your eyelids and also rejuvenate aging eyes.
Is it right for me?If you are adult women or men who genuinely want to modify upper and lower eyelids and want a positive outlook. Also if you have good health and not have serious eye problems and also not a smoker then you can go for the surgery soon.
If you have any medical condition which leads to the surgical risks you must have to know your doctor before the surgery.
You must tell your doctor if you have any of these medical conditions:
- Dry eyes
- Thyroid eye disease
- High blood pressure
Procedural Steps:What happens during eyelid surgery?
Step 1 AnaesthesiaA doctor will give you a local anaesthetic drug before the surgical procedure to numb your surrounding part Or the general anaesthetic drug to make you unconscious If needed.
Step 2 The incisionThe incision lines are made on upper or lower eyelids or both the eyelids for concealed the scars and they are unnoticeable with the naked eyes after they healed. They made on the crease of upper eyelids and just below the lower eyelashes.
Step 3 Closing the incisionsTo close an eyelid incision doctor may use absorbable suture, skin adhesives and surgical tapes also use the chemical peel to remove the discoloration.

- Temporary blurred vision or double vision.
- Dry eyes.
- Difficulty during closing or opening the eyes.

Be sure to ask questions: It's very important to ask your plastic surgeon questions about your eyelid procedure. It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don't be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
After the surgeryThe doctor will prescribe you medicine, ointment to lubricate and cold compress. You have to apply or take medication for better healing and to get away from the infections as per prescription. You must have to protect your eyes from sun rays.
You will get results in several weeks but the incision line will take maybe a year to get perfectly concealed. The surgery will last permanently but you will continue to age naturally.
