Upper eyelid excess skin and fat can create a heavy looking eyelid, aged appearance, puffiness, and sometimes block vision. A blepharoplasty or cosmetic eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure to remove skin and to add or remove fat from the eyelids. Upper blepharoplasty surgery uses incisions on the skin to allow for removal of skin and fat. A thin stitch is then used to bring the skin together to allow for a creation of an eyelid crease. It is performed to remove excess skin and fat and can improve vision. In a lower eyelid surgery, it involves skin incisions directly below the lash line or an incision on the inside of the eyelid. This approach allows for access to the eyelid fat without visible incisions making this technique perfect for patients who need fat to be removed or added. This approach can also be combined with laser resurfacing of the eyelid to reduce visible lines and wrinkles. Double eyelid surgery also known as Asian eyelid surgery is performed to create an upper eyelid crease. Prior to the eyelid surgery, the patient should have a detailed discussion about the procedure and potential risks associated with the operation. The patient should follow the doctor's pre-operative directions cautiously and thoroughly review the post-operative instructions before the day of surgery. It may be required to have your medical doctor "clear" you for surgery if intravenous sedation or general anesthesia is used. They also instruct the patient accordingly to have any medications for pain relief or essential items such a gel packs, artificial tears and gauze at home prior to their return from surgery. Usually, patients have a short recovery time after the surgery. Although bruising and swelling are more often than not worse on the day after surgery, they quickly start to fade away. During the first few days, the use of cool compresses can significantly reduce bruising and swelling around the eyes and the face. Light exercises such as walking will also help in a speedy recovery. Thin bandages are usually placed over the incision sites and removed in after a few days while the stitches can remain in the skin for about a week. Nowadays, self-absorbing stitches are used that do not require removal. Most people return to normal activities after 7 to 10 days following the procedure. By 2 weeks after eyelid surgery, the majority of the bruising and swelling will resolve. As with any surgery, there are potential risks and complications after the surgery. These risks include infection, bleeding, scarring, and inability to close the eyes, dry eye, abnormal positioning of the eyelid,
double vision, and loss of vision. The cost of eyelid surgery depends on the type and complexity of the procedure performed.
