Some people have eyelids that are not in proportion with their size of eyes. There might be loose and saggy skin on the eyelids that appears odd. To amend this issue, eyelid surgery can be the best solution. This surgery can be performed on upper lid, lower lid or on both. This cosmetic surgery is known as blepharoplasty and it improves the aesthetic appearance of eyelids. This can resolve functional issues of eyelids as well.
Blepharoplasty surgeon designs a surgical process according to specific requirements of each patient. The surgical procedure may involve removing fat deposits below eyes, removal of fine lines and wrinkles, give proper shape to eyelids, removal of excess saggy skin from eyelids etc.
To initiate blepharoplasty surgery, surgeons usually use intravenous sedation of general anesthesia for comfort of patient during the surgery. The choice of process depends on the anesthesia specialist. Surgeons design incision lines on eyelids so that the scars can be easily concealed in natural structure of eyelids. Usually these incisions allow surgeons to remove or reposition fat deposits, tightening of muscles and removal of excess skin. For similar processes for lower eyelids incision can be made just below the lower lash line. They can even choose to make incision through inside of lower eyelid. They can remove or reposition fat deposits, however removal of excess skin would not be possible through this incision.
Sutures or skin gloves for these incisions are usually removed after a week and patients can see results of the surgery. Usually it doesn’t require too long for recovery after this surgery and patients can return to their normal life within a week or two.
Average eyelid surgery cost would be excluding charges for anesthesia and charges for surgical equipment and use of hospital facilities. This varies according to different circumstances. Surgeon’s fee depends on his experience, type of procedure used for surgery and geographical location of his office as well.
