What is eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)?
Eyelid surgery (technically called Blepharoplasty) is a procedure that reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin, muscle and underlying fatty tissue from the upper eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes. It will overcome signs that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, it won't improve other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes.
Blepharoplasty can be done alone, or together with other facial surgical procedures such as a facelift or brow lift.

You and your surgeon should carefully discuss your goals and expectations for this surgery.

What are the types of anesthesia?
Eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia--which numbs the area around your eyes--along with intravenous sedatives. You'll be awake during the surgery, but relaxed and insensitive to pain. In some conditions general anesthesia might be considered.
Top
How is the Surgery performed?
The plastic surgeon makes incisions on the natural lines of your eyelids; in the creases of the upper lids, and just below the lashes in the lower lids. Working through these incisions, the plastic surgeon separates the skin from underlying fat and muscle, removes excess fat, and trims sagging skin and muscle. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures that are removed in 3-4 days.

What are the steps after your surgery?
After the surgery, the surgeon will lubricate your eyes with ointment and may apply a bandage. Your eyelids may feel tight and sore as the anesthesia wears off, but in case of any discomfort the pain medication will be prescribed by your surgeon.

The plastic surgeon will instruct you to keep your head elevated for few days, and to use cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. You will use antibiotic eye drops (Your plastic surgeon will follow your progress closely for one week or two. The stitches will be removed during a week after surgery. On their removal, the swelling and discoloration around your eyes will gradually fade, and you shall begin to look and feel better.

When can you get back to normal?
You should be able to read or watch television after two or three days. However, you won't be able to wear contact lenses for about two weeks, and even then they may feel uncomfortable for some time.

Most people feel ready to go out in public in about 10 day's time. You may be sensitive to sunlight, wind, and other irritants for several weeks, so you should wear sunglasses and a special sunscreen made for eyelids.

Your surgeon will probably tell you to keep your activities to a minimum for three to five days, and to avoid more strenuous activities for about three weeks. It's especially important to avoid activities that raise your blood pressure, including bending, lifting, and rigorous sports. You may also be told to avoid alcohol, since it causes fluid retention.

When will you face your new look?
Healing is an ongoing gradual process, and scars might remain slightly pink for six months or more after surgery. Finally, the scars will fade to a thin, hardly visible white line.
