Upper eyelid blepharoplasty - Eyelids Treatment

Blepharoplasty is a kind of surgical procedure that fixes saggy eyelids and includes eliminating overabundance of skin, muscle and fat. As a part of the ageing process, the eyelids begin to stretch, and the muscles supporting them eventually debilitate. Accordingly, excess fat might accumulate above and beneath your eyelids, causing hanging eyebrows, sagging upper eyelids and bags under the eyes. For certain individuals, the results of this surgical procedure may typically last for a longer period of time. On the other hand, for some people, saggy eyelids might occur again. Swelling and bruising, as a part of the upper eyelid blepharoplasty recovery period generally subside within 10 to 14 days.

Before the treatment begins, the doctor will check and mark your eyelids. This will assist the doctor with knowing where to make cuts. They will generally have you sit up straight so they can see your eye bags clearer. 

While the site of incisions might vary based on the concerns, the doctor will make cuts into the upper lid, once the eye area has been numbed using a local anesthesia. Your doctor will then, at that point, eliminate overabundant skin and fat, and stitch or sew the skin back together to make a lifted, smoother eye appearance.
