Blepharoplasty Treatment

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic or medical procedure, also called eyelid surgery which helps to remove wrinkles and helps in tightening of the skin around the eyes. The procedure also helps in the removal of fat and to eradicate dark circles and fat bags around the eyes. This surgery is aimed at improving the eye shape and the overall appearance. Blepharoplasty is done for clinical reasons.

The clinical reasons could be to fix the sight of the eye by correcting the eyelids. The procedure is corrective and may be suggested by your doctor in certain cases. It should be done by fixing up an appointment with a surgeon and after due consultation from an expert.

The medical procedure is important to repair certain eye conditions surgically like extra skin on the eyelids, droopy eyelids, and falling of the lids. The cosmetic reasons for doing the surgery includes condition like treating bags under the eye, lifting the eyebrows, lifting the eyebrows, and giving a resurfaced appearance.

Is there an alternative treatment available for eyelid surgery?

If the dropping or falling of the eyelids is not very problematic then alternative treatment options can also be considered. Some of these treatments are as described below:

Laser Skin Resurfacing/Plasma
The procedure is done using laser beams or plasma and the exposure of the laser/plasma beams to the skin helps in improving the tightness of the skin around the eye area. The treatment also helps in removing pigmentation or discoloration around the eyes.

Dermal Fillers Treatment
These fillers mostly contain chemicals like hyaluronic acid that are injected in the area around the eyes and give a smoother and fuller look. This is a temporary solution that helps in treating the loss of volume and bounce under the eyes.
It is a possibility that the skin might not respond well to the temporary treatments.


What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is the treatment of drooping, falling or sagging under eye bags. This can be treated by a straightforward surgery and it improves the overall appearance of the face. It also helps you look younger by making your eyes look fresher and youthful. The surgery can also be treated as an anti-aging procedure that helps lift confidence by improving your appearance.

Like all surgeries and medical procedures, Blepharoplasty also has a few risks involved. There might be bleeding, scarring, or infection post-surgery, also there could be an injury to eye muscles. In some cases, the surgery also causes itching of the eyes and temporary distortion of the vision, improper closure of the eyes and wrinkles in the eyelids.
