Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure used to correct droopy eyelids. Excess skin and fat from your eyelids and around your eyes are removed by the surgeon. Excess skin and wrinkles on your eyelids give you an aged and tired appearance. Droopy eyelids can also impair your vision. The skin on your eyelids becomes droopy and wrinkled as you age. Some people lose fat as well, and their eyes appear sunken and hollow. Eyelid surgery will make you look younger and more vibrant. Consult with the best cosmetic surgeon in Mumbai to help you make your decision.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Consider this surgery to be an anti-aging procedure. You will look younger and more refreshed after this procedure. You are an excellent candidate if and only if:
- Your upper eyelids appear wrinkled and aged.
- Your eyes have excess fat or bags beneath them.
- With the passage of time, your eyes have become sunken and hollow.
- Even when you're not, you appear tired and depressed.
- Your vision is being hampered by droopy eyelids.
- You want to look younger and more vibrant.
What should you do before having your eyelids operated on?
The most important thing is to meet with our plastic surgeon. We will examine your face and devise a surgical plan based on your needs. Upper or lower eyelid surgery, or both, may be required. We will assist you in making your decision.
Before the surgery, we will examine your health, go over the procedure, and take pictures of your eyelids. We will schedule the procedures at our clinic or at a reputable hospital, depending on the procedures chosen.
The procedure of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty in Mumbai is typically performed as an outpatient procedure at our clinic. If multiple procedures are planned, we can perform them in a hospital under general anaesthesia. However, it is usually simple to perform under local anaesthesia. Your eyelids' excess skin and fat bags are visible. With a small injection of local anaesthetic, we will numb the area. Excess skin is removed, and fat bags are reduced. The procedure is completed with a few dissolvable stitches. Throughout, you will be comfortable and pain-free.
The Recovery and Outcomes of Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery is performed safely as an outpatient procedure at our clinic, so you can go home right away. We may keep you under observation for a few hours after multiple procedures at the hospital. You will be given some simple pain relievers and anti-bacterial medications to help you heal quickly and without infection. There will be no dressings, and you will be able to see clearly with both eyes open. There may be some swelling around the eyes, which will go away after a few days of icing. You will be able to resume your normal daily activities very soon.
Risks and concerns about eyelid surgery
Many people are concerned that eyelid surgery will harm their vision or eyes in some way, but this is not the case. Blepharoplasty is extremely safe, with risks such as swelling, bleeding, scarring, or numbness being extremely rare. With my extensive training and experience, I will ensure that the procedure is both safe and satisfying.
A blepharoplasty can remove years from your face! You will enjoy having a young and fresh appearance once more.
