Eylelid Surgery Overview
Eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty or an eye lift, is a surgery performed to remove bagginess and puffiness from lower eyelids, and droopiness from upper eyelids. It is commonly performed as a cosmetic procedure, but may also be necessary for patients who have obstructed vision due to drooping upper lids. The doctor will usually make a small incision in the upper eyelid or beneath the lower eyelid, in order to remove excess skin and/or fat from the area.
- Rejuvenating the facial appearance
- Droopy upper lids
- Removing bags under the eyes
Surgical adjustments to the eyelids can correct drooping or create a more contoured effect.
Number of days in hospital
Number of days in hospital is usually 1 to 3 days. Sometimes patients stay in hospital for a few days, however, in many cases, no overnight stay is required.
Average length of stay abroad
5 – 7 days. Patients may need a follow up appointment to check progress or get stitches removed.
Before Eyelid Surgery abroad
If a general anesthetic is administered, patients will usually be advised to stop eating and drinking around 12 hours before the procedure.
Some clinics perform the surgery with a local anesthetic, in which case patients are awake for the procedure but the eye area is completely numb. Patients who are awake throughout can usually leave the clinic the same day.
How is it performed
How the surgery is performed, will depend on whether the upper or lower eyelid is being treated.
Upper eyelid surgery involves making an incision in the skin, through which skin and fat is removed. The site is then stitched together in the eyelid, creating what looks like a natural crease.
Lower eyelid surgery involves an incision being made in the lower eyelash line, or on the inside of the lower lid, in order to avoid noticeable scarring, this incision is referred to as a transconjunctival incision. Through the incision, fat can be either removed or added, depending on the desired result, and the incision is then closed.
Sometimes the stitches need removing around one week after surgery, but the surgeon may use dissolvable stitches which are absorbed / broken down naturally by the body.
Local anesthetic, local anesthetic and sedation or general anesthetic.
The Eyelid Surgery takes 1 to 3 hours.
What to expect after Eyelid Surgery
Post procedure care
Patients should keep the wound clean. It is recommended that someone accompanies the patient after the procedure, in case vision is temporarily impaired. Patients should avoid swimming and sun exposure.
Patients may need to return to the clinic after around one week to get stitches removed, or wait a couple of weeks for dissolvable stitches to become absorbed / broken down naturally.
Bruising and swelling is usually worst on the day after surgery, but heals quickly. During the first 48 hours, the use of cool compresses can greatly reduce bruising and swelling around the eyes and face.
