Aging process affects your eyelids very much. After certain age eyelids look puffy and baggy, giving you tired look. Skin becomes loose and lots of wrinkles start to appear. Excess loose skin drooping can sometimes cause obstructed vision. These problems can be easily corrected with Blepharoplasty of upper and or lower eyelids.

Who is a good candidate for it?
Any person who is medically fit, non-smoker, without any ophthalmological problems and has realistic expectations can undergo this procedure.

Anesthesia - It can be done under Sedation with local anesthesia or general anesthesia

Incision- The incision lines for eyelid surgery are designed so the resultant scars will be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region.
The upper eyelid can be corrected through an incision within the natural crease on the eyelid. This allows for removal or repositioning of fat deposits, tightening of muscles and removal of excess skin.
Conditions of the lower eyelid may be corrected with an incision just below the lower lash line. Through this incision, excess skin in the lower eyelid is removed. Again, the excess fat can be repositioned or removed.
A transconjunctival incision, created on the inside of the lower eyelid, is an alternate technique to correct lower eyelid conditions and redistribute or remove excess fat. With this technique, no skin is removed.

Little swelling, irritation, dry eye and bruising is expected and will settle. The final result is seen after 2-3 months.

Complications can occur but rare-
You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.

• Anesthesia risks
