Blepharoplasty or EEsurgery is one of the popular cosmetic procedures performed for eradication of signs of aging on the upper and lower eyelids and improving the whole appearance of eyes. Asian eyelid surgery or double eyelid surgery is another type of eyelid surgery that is very popular cosmetic surgery among Asian descendents all over the world as well as their countries of origin. This surgery results in appearance of visible crease on the upper eyelid when the eye is open. Nearly 50% of Asians do not have natural double eyelid fold and this is why a large number of Asians undergo this procedure to make their eyes look like the western eyes. Let’s know about the discomfort and pain you can feel caused by this procedure and other associated factors.
If we talk about the pain or discomfort caused by the surgery, as it is a surgical procedure it does cause certain side effects, discomfort and pain but all the side effects are temporary and anesthesia is administered during the procedure to minimize the discomfort during the procedure. In most of the cases local anesthesia is administered prior to procedure. However general anesthesia can also be used depending on the pain threshold and condition of the patient. Local anesthesia may wear off during the procedure and your doctor will give you more. There is nothing to be afraid, just seek a reliable plastic surgeon for the surgery.
Your doctor will recommend you not to leave the clinic just after the surgery because you will be having pain on your eyelid. Your eyes will be extremely swollen just after the procedure and will look smaller but this is temporary. Just after the surgery you may feel depressed because of the results and pain but the results will become visible over time.
Generally the stitches are removed and all the swelling goes away in nearly one week and the results will be completely visible after three months or so. You can get back to your work after a week or so.
This is the pain, discomfort and after affects that generally most of the patients experience after the surgery but the recovery period and side effects of the surgery may vary from patient to patient depending on the alterations made during the procedure and condition of the patient. Let’s see what Asian or double eyelid surgery involves.
Double eyelid surgery is actually a cut and sew procedure in which some of the skin on upper eyelid is removed to make a visible crease on it. For this purpose an incision is made on upper eyelid and then some skin is removed. After removing the skin, incision is closed. You can be the candidate for the procedure at any age because the purpose of surgery is making crease in it rather than eradicating aging signs.
