The eyes are often the best asset of a person that’s why in a world where innovation and breakthroughs in health are continuously updating, people tend to become more conscious and willing to undergo techniques for a better look.

 Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

 The eyes are often the best asset of a person that’s why in a world where innovation and breakthroughs in health are continuously updating, people tend to become more conscious and willing to undergo techniques for a better look.

 However, there are environmental factors such as stress that can bring the eyes to look puffy, tired and unpleasant that’s why medical operation is likely to be considered.

 Dr. Malcolm Paul, MD, a plastic surgeon says, “What makes a beautiful eye is not only the eye itself, but what surrounds it, including the position of brows and the contours of the entire upper eye area," explains Dr. Paul. "Upper eyelid surgery is an important facial rejuvenation technique, but we now understand how to perform this technique even more effectively so that the surgical improvements we make today will create the best possible long term results."

 Causes of Eyelid Sagginess

Often blamed for eye bags, dark circles and eyelid sagginess are the lack of sleep, and of course, ageing.  What actually happens when eyelids sag and droop is when the layers of skin, both below and above the eye, start to lose firmness and elasticity. The following are considered causes as well. 

• Fatigue

• Over exercising

• Fluid retention

• Toxins affecting the eyes

• Smoking

• Allergies

• Thyroid problems

 What is Blepharoplasty?

In the objective of reducing the sagginess and droopiness, blepharoplasty is done. It is defined as a plastic surgical operation for correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids.  A surgeon doing the operation first will inject numbing medication to be able for the patient to relax before administering the operation. 

Although this operation is known to be done for cosmetic reasons, it’s also a great way to help improve the sight of ageing people since their sagging upper eyelids are corrected.

 Is Blepharoplasty can be Applicable for Anyone?

For anyone who wants to have a younger-looking eyes and is having a realistic outcome, blepharoplasty is appropriate. People who are 35 years old and older are the leading candidates for this surgery since they are more prone due to ageing. However, people who are exposed to a lot of stressful and tiring works, are probably to undergo such surgical operation.

 How is Blepharoplasty Done?

Here’s how blepharoplasty is done by a surgical doctor.

1. The surgeon makes incisions in accordance with the natural lines of the patient's eyelids. This is to avoid possible scars appearance after the prodecure.

2. For the upper eyelids, the surgeon will make an incision in the creases of the upper lids. For the lower eyelids, the incision is made just below the lashes. (depending on which eyelid you want to be fixed)

3. Using the incisions made, the surgeon will detach the skin from the tissue underneath.  The excess fat is removed and sagging skin and muscle is corrected. Very fine sutures are utilized n this process.

The length of time the operation will take depends on the operation you want to have for your eyelids. If both, this will take for 1-3 hours. If there are other surgical procedures to be made in your face, the procedure will even longer.
