The eyes are the windows of the soul, we are told, and the eyelids play an important role in the human expression. Blepharoplasty is cosmetic eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures done by men. Eyelid surgery can be undertaken for the following reasons :
An ophthalmological examination must be done before eyelid surgery. Specific items to look for will be dryness of the eyes and an eyesight examination.
Eyelid surgery is done under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. The operation lasts one or two hours. The patient may receive general anesthesia if any other surgery is going to be done at the same time as the blepharoplasty.
A few hours of observation afterwards is required.
The surgeon removes excess skin, and sometimes excess fat but are also working on the surrounding muscles, to create a youthful look
As in any surgical procedure, they are always possible but seldom occur (bruising, infection, anesthetic complications).
Specific complications, again always possible, but exceptional:
The final results after cosmetic eyelid surgery are obtained after several months.
The eyelid scars are practically invisible.
The patient's expression is refreshed and looks younger.
