Droopy eyelids may be a feature that you have inherited and are born with or they may be caused with the loss of elasticity of the skin with time and age. Droopy eyelids provide the face a tired and fatigued look and don’t frame the eyes well. Help is at hand as eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can remove the droopy look that your eyelids provide. This surgery is performed by qualified plastic surgeon who has experience in this surgery. It is important to understand that blepharoplasty cannot remove dark circles or laugh lines unless they are on the skin that may be removed.

Cosmetic Surgery for Droopy Eyelids

The procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia and can take between 1-3 hours. Basically what is done is removal of excess skin, fat and muscle that lead to the droopy look of the eyelids. The incisions in the upper eyelids are placed on the natural crease of the eyelids and for the lower eyelids they are made under the eyelashes. Once the excess skin, fat and muscle are removed sutures are placed. In case fat needs to be removed only from the lower eyelids the incision is made inside the eyelid and this is called a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. This cn be done with a LASER with virtually no brusing, minimal eyelid swelling and a quick return to work.

After the Cosmetic Surgery for Droopy Eyelids

The eyes may be bandaged and they will feel swollen and bruised. Discomfort can be eased by the use of cold compressions and prescription drugs. The head needs to be kept elevated even while lying down. Once the bandages are off Dr. Pasquale and his staff will show you how to take care of your eyes. This may include the use of eye drops or an ointment to keep the area lubricated. The stitches would be removed in 3 days after droopy eyelid surgery.
