 Understanding Eyelid Surgery: What It Is and How It Can Benefit You

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can be performed on both upper and lower eyelids for aesthetic or functional reasons. This procedure involves removing excess skin and fat in the eyelids while tightening the skin around the eyelids. Eyelid surgery helps individuals get a more youthful appearance as well as an improved vision.

Who is the ideal candidate for Blepharoplasty Surgery?

Dr. Anjali of Dr. Anjali's Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic, Visakhapatnam has provided criteria for candidates who want to receive Blepharoplasty:

  • A person who cannot see properly because of droopy eyelids, sagging skin on the eyelids (laxity) or has excess fat, or muscle that may be causing wrinkles around the eyes.
  • The candidate should be physically healthy, psychologically stable, and should have realistic expectations from the surgery.
  • Blepharoplasty is most often done on individuals over 35 years old, although if your family has a history of droopy, baggy eyelids, you might opt to have eye surgery at a younger age.
  • It’s also helpful if you don’t have any serious chronic illnesses, and if you don’t smoke because these factors might influence your recovery. If you smoke, you must be prepared to quit smoking for a set length of time as ordered by Dr. Anjali .

If you fall into the above criteria, you might be an ideal candidate for Blepharoplasty.

What are the types of Blepharoplasty?

  • Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty: Some people may need to undergo upper eyelid blepharoplasty or cosmetic surgery of the eyelid for functional reasons, such as fat accumulation that affects vision and skin laxity. You can also opt for upper eyelid surgery if you want to improve your appearance. Issues like the skin around the eyes becoming thinner and fat turning into bumps can all go away with this procedure!

  • Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty: Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that eliminates fat bulges in the eye area, extra sagging skin below your eyes and helps to improve one’s appearance drastically.


What to expect at the consultation for Blepharoplasty ?

During blepharoplasty consultation, Dr. Anjali will need information about your medical history, allergies, any medications (both over-the-counter and prescription) you take, and other health-related concerns.

Dr. Anjali will examine your eyes and assess your tear production in this consultation. Any relevant information from your eye doctor or the most recent eye exam might be requested. After that, Dr. Anjali will talk about your goals and expectations for the surgery. You must decide whether to get blepharoplasty on all four eyelids or just the upper or lower eyelids.

Don’t be afraid to ask Dr. Anjali any questions you may have, especially those regarding your expectations and worries about the outcome.

How is Blepharoplasty Surgery performed?

  • Blepharoplasty may take from one to three hours, depending on the degree of surgery. Dr. Anjali will most likely start with the upper lids and work her way down if you’re getting all four eyelids treated.

  • Dr. Anjali makes incisions in the creases of your upper lids, and just beneath the lashes in the lower lids during a standard procedure. The cuts may extend into the crow’s feet or laugh lines at the outer edges of your eyes.

  • The skin is separated from underlying fatty tissue and muscle, extra fat is removed, and sagging skin and muscle are trimmed using a scalpel. The incisions are then sealed with tiny stitches.

  • For the lower eyelids, Dr. Anjali may perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty on you if you have a pocket of fat beneath your lower eyelids but don’t need to have any skin removed. The incision is made inside your lower eyelid in this procedure, leaving no obvious scar. It’s usually done on younger individuals with more elastic and thicker skin.

  • However if excess skin is also present then Dr. Anjali will need to make an incision through the lower eyelid skin in the crease just below the lash line.

  • After surgery, your eyes will most likely be coated with ointment and a bandage applied to them. When the anesthesia wears off, your eyelids may feel tight and painful, but you can manage any discomfort with prescription pain medication. If you experience severe agony, contact Dr. Anjali immediately.


What happens after Blepharoplasty Surgery?

  • Dr. Anjali may advise you to keep your head raised for several days and to apply ice packs to reduce swelling and bruising (bruising varies from person to person; it peaks during the first week and usually lasts between 2 weeks to a month).
  • You’ll be shown how to clean out your eyes, which may take a few days to get used to. Many doctors recommend eye ointments because your eyelids may feel scratchy at first and your eyes might hurt or itch.
  • For the first few days, you may also experience increased tearing, sensitivity to light (such as when you look at bright lights), and temporary changes in your vision, such as blurring.
  • Dr. Anjali will be watching your progress closely for the first week and up to 10 days. Your stitches will be removed two to seven days after surgery. As soon as they’re out of your eye, the swelling and discolor­ation around your eyes will slowly subside, and you’ll start to look and feel a lot better.
  • After two or three days, you should be able to read books or watch TV. But you shouldn’t wear contacts for about two weeks, at least not right away. And even after that, they might feel uncomfortable for a while until your eyes adjust.
  • Most people feel ready for public exposure and work after one to two weeks. After that, depending on the rate at which you heal and Dr. Anjali ’s instructions, you‘ll probably be able to put on makeup to cover up any remaining bruises.
  • You may be sensitive for several weeks after exposure to sunlight, wind, or other irritants, so you should wear glasses and a special sunscreen lotion for your eyes when you go outside.
  • Dr. Anjali will likely advise you to rest for three to five days after your surgery and to avoid any strenuous activity for about three weeks. It’s especially important to avoid activities like bending, lifting, and vigorous sports that raise your blood pressure. You may also be advised not to drink alcohol because it causes fluid retention.

What is the cost of Blepharoplasty in Visakhapatnam?

The cost of blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, in Visakhapatnam can vary depending on a number of factors. These include the fees for consultation with the doctor, as well as the fees for the medical staff involved in the procedure. The cost of the surgical facility itself can also be a factor, as well as the cost of any pre-surgical tests that may be required. In addition, post-surgery dressings and garments can also add to the overall cost of the procedure.

If the surgery is being performed for purely aesthetic reasons, insurance will not cover the cost. If, however, a medical or functional cause of visual disturbance is identified, insurance may cover the surgery.
