Blepharoplasty Package

Eyelid plastic surgery, also known as "Blepharoplasty", is designed to remove excess skin from the eyelids, improve puffy and droopy eyelids, and in some cases correct eyelid depression. The main purpose of this cosmetic eyelid surgery is to rejuvenate the area surrounding the eyes.

Age Limit for Blepharoplasty
  • You Should be older than 35 years.
Surgical Procedure

The surgery, which can be performed on both of the upper and lower eyelids, is usually done on an outpatient basis, under local anesthesia, and there is no need for hospitalization. In very exceptional cases, the surgery may be performed under general anesthesia, depending on the patient's health condition and the surgeon’s diagnosis.

Post-Operative Care

Your eyelids may feel tight and sore or painful as the numbing medicine (anesthesia) wears off. The discomfort is usually mild and easily controlled with pain medicine. If you have any severe pain or reduced vision, be sure to call your ophthalmologist. It is generally recommended to use a cold compress for 24 to 48 hours and keep your head raised (use several pillows during sleeping). After 48 hours, if you have bruises, use a warm compress. These measures help to control swelling and bruising of the surgical site. The rate of swelling and bruising of the surgical incision site varies from person to person, and usually the swelling and bruising will be maximized after a few days and resolve between two to four weeks. One to two weeks after surgery, the eyelids have mild secretion or adhesion. The use of appropriate eye drops helps to eliminate these discomforts. In the first days after surgery some complications like tearing, light sensitivity, and temporary vision problems (such as mild blurred or double vision) may occur which are gradually resolved. The stitches are usually removed 6 to 8 days after surgery.

visual acuity test, tear film assessment, assessment of the extraocular movement, motor and sensory testing of the facial and ocular nerves, and examination of the condition of the eyebrows and their symmetry
