Eyes hold immense aesthetic significance and can make the face look tired and aged. Excess skin and fat tissues on the upper eyelid may give an individual a heavy aged appearance of puffy eyes. In such circumstances, Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the aesthetic appearance of eyes and face giving them a more youthful look. Upper blepharoplasty is known to be performed on individuals who experience partially blocked vision due to their eyelid condition. During upper blepharoplasty, incisions are surgically made on the skin to facilitate the removal of excess skin and fat tissue. Fine stitches are then used to strategically conjoin the skin creating an eyelid crease.
Below, we will discuss the upper blepharoplasty procedure in detail. Continue reading if you want to learn more about the treatment.
Upper blepharoplasty is an elective form of surgery that seeks to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the eyelids by addressing puffiness, sagginess, and droopiness in the upper eyelids. It boosts facial and cosmetic appearance. By improving the area of the skin around the eyes, a youthful look is achieved that is effective for those who face premature aging and eye bags.
Ideal candidates for blepharoplasty are healthy, non-smoking individuals who do not suffer from chronic diseases and have realistic expectations from the surgery. The complications are higher for those individuals who are suffering from diabetes, glaucoma, high blood pressure, thyroiditis or vascular diseases.
The procedure is carried out in the presence of local anesthesia and mild sedation or general anesthesia as it is more suitable for you but this decision is to be taken by your surgeon. An incision in the upper eyelid is made in the natural crease of the lid so that it remains hidden. After the incisions, the skin is excised and fat is removed, added or redistributed as necessary. To close the surgical site, fine sutures, surgical glue or straps may be used. For the coming weeks of recovery, pain medication and topical creams are prescribed for quicker and safer healing in order to avoid risks of infection. Sunglasses are an accessory you must wear until recovery is complete.
Swelling and tenderness are experienced for the first few weeks after surgery but it gradually declines and the bruises fade. Once the scars of surgery disappear, the patient will begin to see beautiful and youthful eyes once again. You will have smoother eyelids that roll back the years and give you a fresh new look or help you regain your youthful appearance.
Upper blepharoplasty can be performed with other cosmetic procedures such as facelifts, browlifts or laser epidermal resurfacing to give you a perfect look that you wish to have. The complications associated with upper blepharoplasty are minimal and usually include infection, scarring or temporary blurred vision that is very rare. Costs for upper blepharoplasty vary depending on the complexity of the condition and the type of technique carried out. Medical insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery unless the upper blepharoplasty is being performed to solve the partial obstruction of vision as proven in a valid medical checkup hence making the patient medically deserving of an eyelid lift.
Upper blepharoplasty is undoubtedly an effective solution for the people who have sagging or droopy upper eyelids that blocks their vision. However, it is necessary for you to talk to your surgeon before undergoing the surgery. It will help you to know about your candidacy for the procedure. Moreover, you will be able to discuss your concerns with the doctor to avoid any risks.
