Eyelid Surgery Introduction

One of the first areas of the skin to show signs of aging is the eyes. Skin around the eyes is naturally thin, and gets thinner and less elastic the older you get. Dr. Chartchai will show you how the redundant skin and excess fat in your upper eyelids may create a tired look and a heavy feel to the lids.

Years of frowning create eyelid folds that droop over the eyes and in extreme cases interfere with your sight. Our Surgeon, Dr. Chartchai will also demonstrate to you how the fatty deposits under your eyes fall and create the bagginess that makes you look sad and old.

Surgical/Procedure name: Blepharoplasty
Common name: Eye Lift, Eyelid Surgery, Eye Lift Surgery, Upper and Lower Eyes

How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?

Eyelid surgery can be a standalone outpatient surgery or can be combined with other plastic surgery procedures.

  • Lower Lid
    Excess skin, fine lines and puffiness below the eyes are reduced by removing (or redistributing) excess fatty tissue, skin and muscle. This is done with a scalpel through an incision made just below the lower eyelashes or sometimes through the conjunctiva.
  • Upper Lid
    Excess skin is marked in the fold of the upper lid where the incision will be made. The resulting scar will fall into the fold and be nearly invisible.

 

Recovery and Post Operative Care

Stitches are removed after 4 or 5 days. Contact lens must not be worn for one week or longer post surgery.

For several weeks you will experience bruising and swelling. Ice packs will help alleviate the swelling and bruising after surgery. No heavy exertion or strenuous activity should be undertaken for 2-3 weeks. Sunglasses are required when you go outside in the sun.

 

Possible Complications

Dryness, burning, itching or excessive tearing, sensitivity to light and possible blurred vision are a temporary inconvenience after eyelid surgery. Temporary eversion (a turning down of the lower lid) may occur but should be back to normal in a few weeks. Dr. Chartchai routinely does a tarsal suspension to prevent this complication. Bleeding and infection are the main risks, but are preventable.
