Frequently Asked Questions
1. Am I a suitable candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Blepharoplasty, or surgery, is a surgical operation that improves the appearance and function of the upper and lower eyelids. As we become older, our skin loses its flexibility. Due to a lack of flexibility and the constant pull of gravity, excess skin gathers on the upper and lower eyelids. Wrinkles and bulges are caused by excess skin on the lower eyelid. An excess fold of skin on the top eyelids might hang over the eyelashes and obstruct your vision. The majority of eyelid surgeries are performed for cosmetic reasons. It is, nevertheless, an excellent approach to restore vision in older persons whose sagging upper eyelids obstruct vision.
2. Where are Blepharoplasty incisions made?
Eyelid surgery removing extra skin from the upper eyelids and decreasing eye bags from the lower eyelids. If the patient has undergone surgery on both their upper and lower eyelids before, our surgeon will usually start with the top lids. He makes a cut along the eyelid fold, removes some superfluous skin, muscle, and fat, and heals the wound. Excess fat, muscle, and drooping skin are removed from the lower lid by making an incision directly below the lashes in your eye's natural crease or inside the lower lid.
