Blepharoplasty - Eyelid Surgery - Plastic Surgery India
Blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove fat--usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.
As we age, excess skin forms in the eye area and the skin loses elasticity. Fatty tissue can accumulate under the skin. Eyes "look older" because these aging processes leave the eyes appearing tired, wrinkled, or puffy. Genetic factors and body chemistry can cause these aging effects in younger people. Plastic surgery may restore a youthful and refreshed appearance to your eyes.
The best candidates for blepharoplasty are physically healthy, emotionally stable, and well-informed about the procedure. Ideal candidates are typically at least 35 (although genetic factors may indicate treatment for younger patients).
Blepharoplasty usually takes one to three hours, depending on the extent of the surgery. In a typical procedure, the surgeon makes incisions following the natural lines of your eyelids; in the creases of your upper lids, and just below the lashes in the lower lids. The incisions may extend into the crow's feet or laugh lines at the outer corners of your eyes. Working through these incisions, the surgeon separates the skin from underlying fatty tissue and muscle, removes excess fat, and often trims sagging skin and muscle. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures.
Expectations : Most people can expect good results from blepharoplasty, with the removal of excess eyelid skin and fat producing a more youthful appearance. Some swelling and discoloration is expected immediately following the procedure, but this clears in time. Small scars will be left where the surgeon has made incisions; but these generally lighten in appearance over several months, and, if placed correctly, will not be readily noticeable.

Anaesthesia : Local/General anesthesia
Hospital stay : less than a day
Recovery time : normal routine activities allowed after 2nd day. Some amount of eyelid swelling is expected after the procedure which usually subsides after few days.
