Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)

What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also known as an eye lift or blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure which helps restore tired-looking or baggy eyes to their naturally youthful appearance. The aging process affects the elasticity of the skin. Gravity pulls the fragile skin down, and thus, prompts the formation of droopy eyelids or bags under the eyes. Muscles surrounding the eyes also weaken with time, making the skin appear wrinkly and bulgy.

Excess skin and/or fat can be removed from both upper and lower eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning that patients are discharged from the hospital on the same day as their surgery. Upper eyelid surgery is performed under local or general anaesthesia. Lower eyelid surgery is only performed under general anaesthesia. Usually, especially with upper eyelid surgery, a surgeon injects numbing medications into your eyelids and administers sedative medications through an intravenous catheter. Incisions are usually done above the lash line or inside the pink portion of the lid (transconjunctival approach).

Upper eyelid surgery for medical reasons

Severely hooded eyes not only make one appear much older but also can impair one’s vision which may interfere with daily tasks (e.g. driving). Droopy eyes can result in the loss of peripheral vision, particularly the top and side parts of the visual field, making eye lift surgery a medical necessity. After blepharoplasty, patients regain their normal vision and become more alert, and thus, can drive safely.

Eyelid surgery may also be required for treatment of such hereditary conditions as ptosis. If untreated, it can worsen the vision even more and lead to other conditions, such as amblyopia or astigmatism.

Is eyelid surgery safe? Can it affect my vision?

Eyelid surgery targets one of the most fragile parts of the human body, thus, it is not surprising that many prospective patients worry about their eyesight after surgery. As opposed to many concerns, blepharoplasty significantly improves vision. After removing extra skin and fat from the eye area patients can see more clearly.

Patients who have high blood pressure or are on blood thinners or aspirin have a higher risk of complications. In extremely rare cases (1 in every 30.000 surgeries) eyelid surgery can result in vision loss. Fortunately, it is such a rare occurrence that most surgeons have never observed this complication during their career.

Preparing for eyelid surgery

Patients have very specific expectations for the outcome of a surgery, therefore, a thorough discussion with a surgeon is necessary.

During the consultation, patients are instructed to stop taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen and the like. You should take only medications that are approved by your doctor. 

Smoking and alcohol consumption should be avoided one month before and after the surgery so that it does not restrict blood circulation and affect the healing process.

Skin condition and wound healing greatly depend on nutrition. You should consume enough minerals (e.g. zinc) and vitamins (e.g. vitamin A and vitamin C) which are all important for the synthesis of collagen. Note that malnutrition impairs all stages of immune response, wound healing and tissue production

Make sure you have a well-fitted pair of sunglasses as you will have to wear them outside.

Medical examination and a review of medical history is an essential step prior to surgery. Your surgeon will explain in detail the surgery plan and recovery process. Before and after pictures of your eyelids may also be taken.

You should not eat or drink 6 hours before your surgery. An empty stomach is required in order to prevent regurgitation when under anaesthesia.

On the day of surgery, you should not wear any makeup, eyelash extensions, wigs or hairpieces.

Opt for comfortable and loose clothing. Choose a button-up top so that you do not have to put on clothes over your head.

Recovery after eyelid surgery

Explaining aftercare and revision surgery policy

You can find more information in video format about post-op healing and revision surgery policy in the section “Explaining aftercare and revision surgery policy” here.

Just after the surgery, you will wake up from anaesthesia in a recovery room. If everything goes well, you will be discharged from the hospital to recuperate at home.

At first, you may experience blurred or double vision, watery eyes, numb eyelids, light sensitivity, swelling, and bruising similar to having a black eye. Your doctor will inform you about any specific pain-relieving medications you have to take. Slightly elevating your head when sleeping will reduce swelling and bruising.  Eyes may have to be cleaned gently with prescribed ointments. Eye drops will be necessary to prevent the eyes from drying out.

After about a week most patients have recovered enough to make short trips. Bruising should subside after 10-14 days. By this time you should feel confident to go out in the public again. Usually, patients can return to their jobs in 10-14 days after an eyelid lift. However, if your job requires staring at a computer screen for long periods of time, be careful about straining your eyes and attempt to gradually increase your workload.

 You should not drive until your surgeon gives you clearance to do so. 

When upper eyelid surgery is not enough?

Eyelid surgery restores a more natural eye contour by correcting droopy eyelids and bags under the eyes. However, blepharoplasty cannot correct the wrinkles around the eyes (e.g. crow’s feet), remove forehead wrinkles, or reposition the eyebrows. Thus, in many cases, just blepharoplasty may not be enough to achieve one´s aesthetic goals.

Fortunately, eyelid surgery can be performed with other rejuvenation procedures, such as a forehead lift or facelift. For those who want to make the most out of their efforts, performing several procedures in one go will save money as well as traveling and recovery time. 

Different types of lower eyelid surgery

Aging process makes the skin under the eyes loosen and wrinkles form. In some cases, fat which was previously located around the eye can shift from its position and accumulate under the eyes as bags. When a patient decides to undergo lower eyelid surgery, there are a few different surgical techniques that can be performed.
