The aesthetic importance of eyes cannot be undermined. When you look at a person’s face, the first thing you notice about them are their eyes. You may not be blessed with a gorgeous pair of eyes or perhaps as a consequence of aging, the youthful appearance of your eyes might have faded. But worry not, because eyelid surgery offers a solution to your problems. Eyelid surgery also known as Blepharoplasty, removes extra fat from around your eye to make you look younger. It can effectively improve the appearance of your eyes by eradicating visible signs of aging on your upper and lower eyelids.

Eyelid Surgery Goals
The goal of this surgery is improving the appearance of your eyes by:

- Removing aging signs on lower eyelids like lines, droopiness and bags.
- Giving more rested and youthful appearance to your eyes.

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty in Dubai, is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. Non-surgical options that eradicate visible signs of aging around the eyes are also available. These options are:
- Botox injections – Botox is a muscle relaxer that is injected in few sites around the eyes to eradicate lines and wrinkles and restore the youthful appearance of eyes.
- Injectable fillers – They are the fillers that are injected around the eyes to remove lines and are also helpful for removing eye bags.
- Fat injections – This treatment involves injecting your own body fat, taken from some other area of the body, under the eyes to remove eye bags and improve the aesthetic appearance of eyes.
Eyelid Surgery Techniques
Eyelid surgery in Dubai can be performed using various techniques which include:
- Upper eyelid surgery: It is performed on upper eyelids to remove the sagging skin, excess fat and lines.
- Lower eyelid surgery: It is performed on lower eyelids to remove puffiness, fine lines and under eye bags.
- Combined upper and lower eyelid surgery: When surgery is performed on both the eyelids simultaneously, it is called combined upper and lower blepharoplasty.
During your pre-op visit, our plastic surgeon will review your medical history, discuss the options available and will enlighten you on the process. He will also provide thorough list of pre-surgical instructions. Some steps that you will have to take prior to surgery are:
- Get the required lab tests done.
- Stop smoking for about six weeks or as recommended by the surgeon as it can affect healing process.
- Take the prescribed medications regularly and make adjustments in current medications.
- Discontinue the use of herbal supplements, aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs.
- Follow the recommended diet regimen and eat healthy food.
Eyelid Surgery Procedure
The latest procedure of Blepharoplasty in Dubai is performed on outpatient basis and it may take up to three hours. Following is the step by step description of surgery.
- The first step of the procedure is administration of anesthesia. It is mostly performed under local anesthesia but general anesthesia can also be used as an option.
- Then the surgeon will make incision in the suitable site depending on the type of surgery.
- For upper eyelid surgery, incision is made in the natural crease of upper eyelid.
- For lower eyelid surgery, incision is made either just below the lash line or inside the lower eyelid.

Eyelid Surgery Benefits
There are many aesthetic, functional and psychological benefits of this treatment. Here are some of them.
- It makes your eyes more refreshed and rejuvenated.
- It will make you look more vibrant even without makeup.
- It restores the vision obscured by sagging eyelids.

Experiencing temporary inability to close your eyelids completely is one of the most common complications that you might experience as a result of getting this procedure. It may happen due to the dryness of your eyes. Prescribed eye drops and other suggested remedies can assist you in this situation.

- Observable surgical scarring

- Under-correction (not removing enough of the excessive skin)
- Vision loss from retrobulbar hemorrhage
Suggestion – Don’t hesitate to call your surgeon if you are experiencing any of the above issues.
