Blepharoplasty

Ideal candidates

Men or women of any age with droopy, hooded upper lids or puffy under-eye bags who wish to have a youthful and attractive appearance of their eyes.

The procedure

Upper blepharoplasty: Skin incision is placed in the natural crease of the eyelids to remove excess skin and fat, while orbicularis oculi muscle is typically spared. Fat is also minimally removed to avoid a “hollow-eyes” appearance. Lateral canthus is elevated with non-absorbable sutures, as it normally lies 2mm higher than medial canthus. Lower blepharoplasty: Skin incision is placed 2mm under the lower lid margin to remove excess skin and fat that cause tiring and saggy appearance. In almost every patient over 35, tightening of the lower lid must be performed to avoid scleral show.

Anesthesia

Local anesthesia with or without sedation.

Recovery

Application of ice pack is recommended to reduce swelling and bruises. These typically remain for 1-2 weeks. Sutures are absorbable and do not have to be removed. Eye drops (natural tears) are typically applied for 1-2 months for lubrication. The final result is usually obvious after 1 month.
