It is a short definition af “Gaining a young and energetic look with a simple procedure”. It is called as Blepharoplasty and is a type of surgery that removes excess skin from the eyelids.
With age, eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess skin and fat can gather above and below your eyelids. This can cause sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under the eyes.Besides aging, severely sagging skin around the eyes can reduce side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of the visual field. Blepharoplasty can reduce or get rid of these vision problems.
For eyelids, the surgeon cuts along the fold of the eyelid and removes some excess skin, muscle and possibly fat; then the closes the cut.
How do I feel after the surgery

You will use ice packs on your eyes for 10 minutes every hour the night after surgery. The following day, you need to use ice packs on your eyes 4 to 5 times throughout the day. Your surgeon will prescribe eye drops or ointments for you. You need to sleep with your head raised higher than your chest for a few days. You may feel relaxed if you apply cool compresses to reduce swelling. Wearing dark sunglasses to protect the skin of your eyelids from sun and wind for a while. If needed, you will be recommended to use acetaminophen to control the pain.
When will I see the result and how long does it last
