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.
Dr. Anjali of Dr. Anjali's Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic, Visakhapatnam has provided criteria for candidates who want to receive Blepharoplasty:
If you fall into the above criteria, you might be an ideal candidate for Blepharoplasty.Book Appointment
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.
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.
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.
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.Book Appointment

If eyelid surgery is performed correctly, complications are rare and usually minor. However, there is always a risk of complications during any surgery, including infection and a reaction to the anesthetic. You can reduce your risk by closely following Dr. Anjali ’s instructions both before and after your surgery.
