What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty (BLEF-uh-roe-plas-tee) or eyelid surgery is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes.

Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

Blepharoplasty, also known as eye lift or eyelid, is a surgery that gives your face a dynamic and younger look. Blepharoplasty reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids.

An eye lift will not eliminate dark circles under the eyes, crow’s feet, or other facial wrinkles. It is often done along with other procedures such as laser resurfacing, filler injections, or forehead lifts.

 Blepharoplasty in Iran

Before Blepharoplasty surgery

Why it’s done

You might consider blepharoplasty if droopy or sagging eyelids keep your eyes from opening completely or pull down your lower eyelids. Removing excess tissue from your upper eyelids can improve your vision.

Who Are the Best Candidates for Blepharoplasty Surgery?

Blepharoplasty may be an option if you have:

. Baggy or droopy upper eyelids

. Excess skin of the upper eyelids that interferes with your peripheral vision

. Excess skin on the lower eyelids

. Bags under your eyes

You may undergo blepharoplasty at the same time as another procedure, such as a brow lift, face-lift or skin resurfacing.

Before your eyelid surgery, you’ll undergo:

. A physical examination. Your surgeon will conduct a physical examination, which may include testing your tear production and measuring parts of your eyelids.

. A vision examination. Your eye doctor will examine your eyes and test your vision, including your peripheral vision. This is needed to support an insurance claim.

. Eyelid photography. Your eyes will be photographed from different angles. These photos help with planning the surgery, assessing its immediate and long-term effects, and supporting an insurance claim.

And you’ll be asked to:

. Stop taking warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven), aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), naproxen sodium (Aleve, others), naproxen (Naprosyn), and any other medication or herbal supplement associated with increased bleeding. Ask your doctor how long before surgery you need to stop taking these medicines. Take only medications approved by your surgeon.

. Quit smoking several weeks before your surgery. Smoking can reduce your ability to heal after surgery.

. Arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery if you’re having outpatient surgery. Plan to have someone stay with you for the first night after returning home from surgery.

Preparation for a Blepharoplasty Procedure

You’ll need to clarify with your doctor whether you’ll be undergoing local or general anesthesia for your eyelid surgery.

If you have local anesthesia, you will remain awake during the procedure, but the area around your eyes will be numbed with a drug administered through a needle. Local anesthesia can be enhanced with the use of systemic sedatives given either orally or intravenously.

You may require general anesthesia if the blepharoplasty is more complicated or if you plan to undergo other cosmetic procedures at the same time.

If you need general anesthesia, you will be given an intravenous (IV) injection that will put you to sleep for the duration of the procedure, which lasts from one to two hours, depending on the complexity of the surgery and whether both upper and lower eyelids are involved.

Prior to the day of the procedure and particularly if you’ll be undergoing general anesthesia, you may be asked to take steps such as these:

. If your doctor advises this, stop taking any medication that can thin your blood and prevent it from clotting normally. This includes pain relievers such as aspirin and ibuprofen. You’ll need to stop these medications one to two weeks beforehand, to reduce the possibility of excess bleeding during the procedure.

. Eat only a light meal such as soup the evening before your surgery.

. Do not eat or drink anything after midnight.

. On the morning of your procedure, you should take essential medications — such as for blood pressure — with a small sip of water.

. Do not wear makeup of any kind on the day of surgery.

. Make sure someone is available to transport you home and watch after you during the first several hours after you are released following surgery.

Procedures typically are performed in a day clinic or at the doctor’s office. Ordinarily you would not need an overnight hospital stay unless you plan to have several complex cosmetic procedures that day.

Blepharoplasty Surgery complication and Risks 

It’s common after eyelid surgery to temporarily have:

. Puffy, numb eyelids that are difficult to close at night

. Irritated, sensitive or watery eyes – this may last a few weeks

. Bruising that looks like a black eye

. Scars – these eventually fade to almost be invisible

Eyelid surgery can occasionally result in:

. Temporary blurred or double vision

. Your eyes looking slightly uneven (asymmetrical)

. A pool of blood collecting under the skin (haematoma) – this usually disappears on its own after a few weeks.

. Noticeable scarring

Rarely, it can result in more serious problems, including:

. Injury to eye muscles

. The lower eyelid drooping away from the eye and turning outwards (ectropion)

. The lower eyelid becoming pulled down and showing the white of the eye below the iris (eyelid retraction)

. Visual impairment – though this is extremely rare and many people find that their vision improves in the long term

Also, any type of operation carries a small risk of:

. Excessive bleeding

. Developing a blood clot in a vein

. Infection

. An allergic reaction to the anaesthetic

The surgeon should explain how likely these risks and complications are, and how they would be treated if they happen.

Occasionally, patients find the desired effect was not achieved and feel they need another operation.

During Blepharoplasty in Iran

What Happens During Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty can be performed on upper eyelids, lower eyelids — or both at the same time.

During surgery, incisions are made in the natural folds of the eyelid, in the crease of the upper eyelid and just beneath the lashes or behind the lower eyelid. This way, incisions are virtually unnoticeable after they have healed.

While you are lying down during blepharoplasty, your surgeon will make precise markings to designate where excess skin and fat pads need to be removed. Some underlying muscle also may be removed.

These tissues are removed with surgical instruments such as scalpels, surgical scissors, radio-frequency cutting devices and sometimes cutting lasers. Sutures or tissue adhesives (glue) then are carefully applied to smooth and reconfigure areas around the eyebrows and eyelids.

During the procedure, your surgeon will make judgments about how much skin, muscle and/or fat to remove, based on a preoperative evaluation of factors such as your underlying facial muscle structure, bone structure and the symmetry of your eyebrows.

Dry eye patients frequently require that less tissue be removed to avoid exposing more of the eye to the air, which can cause symptoms to worsen.

Your surgeon also may use a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to enhance the procedure by resurfacing skin and smoothing out any remaining wrinkles in the eyelid and eyebrow area.

In cases where the eyebrows also are droopy, a procedure to elevate the eyebrows also may be appropriate. This procedure, called a brow lift, involves making incisions into the scalp and tightening the skin to lift the eyebrows.

5 Different eye shapes

These typesType of eyelid surgery of eyes might need some correction

1. Sleepy & Droopy Eyes

This type of eyes will make you look tired and lack of positive energy. It is likely that more than half of your iris is covered by your upper eyelid skin, and this might create a lazy and depressed look.

2. Asymmetrical Eyes

No one has the perfect asymmetry between left and right of the face. The more symmetrical your looks, the more beautiful people will see you.

3. Small Eyes

Having small eyes can hamper you from leaving a strong impression. You may also feel that after taking yourself a picture, your face looks relatively bigger because of your small eyes.

4. Sunken & Hollow Eyes

Sunken or hollow eyes make look older than you currently are. It also might make people think that you are sick and unhealthy.

5. Saggy Eyes

As you get older, having saggy skin around your eyes is inevitable. However, you can correct this before it’s too late by removing multi-layered upper eyelids and creating single and defined eyelids.

4 Types of Blepharoplasty surgery

1. Lower blepharoplasty Surgery:

What is lower eyelid surgery?

A lower blepharoplasty is carried out on the lower eyelids to help correct loose, drooping skin and eye bags between the lower eyelashes and the tops of the cheeks. It can also help to correct darker, creepy skin and puffiness under the eyes.

With lower lid surgery, your surgeon will make an incision either just inside the lower lid or just below the lower lash line.

Then they will remove the loose, creepy skin and fatty tissue that is causing the lower eyelids to droop and appear heavy.

You may then have dissolvable stitches or suture strips to close the incision. If you have suture strips, these will be removed by your surgical team around a week later.

Lower eyelid surgery usually takes longer than surgery to the upper eyelid and can take up to two hours.

2. Upper blepharoplasty Surgery:

What is upper eyelid surgery?

An upper blepharoplasty is carried out on the upper eyelids to help improve the tone and tightness of the skin between the eyebrows and the upper eyelashes. It will help to minimize excess skin that can cause the upper lids to appear heavy and creased.

Your surgeon will make an incision in the skin of the upper eyelid where the skin naturally creases, to minimize scarring.

They will then remove the excess tissue that is causing the heavy eyelids (this can be fat, muscle or excess skin) before closing the incision using small stitches. These stitches are designed to dissolve or fall out over the weeks following surgery. Upper eyelid surgery usually takes around an hour.

Upper eyelid surgery is mostly performed to deal with vision disorders caused by excessive sagging of upper eyelid.

3. Laser blepharoplasty Surgery:

Laser technique is used to fix problems of sagging eyelids, under eye bags and especially wrinkles without any incision. This technique is suitable for those who doesn’t want to have an operation with incision or are not able to undergo a procedure with anesthesia.

4. Asian blepharoplasty Surgery:

Asians and people with Asian roots generally have single eyelids, so they don’t have visible folds and creases in their upper eyelids. This feature causes eyes look smaller, puffy or the face look tired. Asian eyelid surgery generally includes a small incision made in the upper eyelid from which the excess tissue containing fat and skin will be removed. With this incision, an eyelid fold is imitated. Asian eyelid surgery is designed to keep ethnic origin and glamorize the face and eye shape at the same time.

After blepharoplasty surgery in Iran

What is the recovery time after eyelid surgery?

After surgery, you will be given pain relief medications to use once the anaesthetic wears off, and you may have eye pads on for a short while to help minimise bruising.

Your eye area, depending on whether you’ve had upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery or both, will feel tender, swollen and bruised in the days after surgery. Your eyes may also feel dry.

You will be given full instructions to follow on how to clean and care for your eyes in the weeks that follow surgery. Your surgeon may also give you antibiotic cream to use to help prevent an infection developing while your wounds heal.

The swelling and bruising will normally settle down after a week, but it may take up to six months for the full benefits of eyelid surgery to be noticeable.

You will normally need around a week off work and normal duties to recover from eyelid surgery. You should also refrain from driving for a few days or for as long as your surgeon has recommended.

Tips for eyelid surgery recovery

The following tips will help you recover successfully:

. When resting, use more pillows than normal to keep your head in an upright position to help minimise swelling.

. Use a cold pack on your eyes, if your surgeon has said this is advisable

. Wear wraparound sunglasses when outside to avoid irritation from strong sunlight, winds, dust or dirt.

. Take paracetamol or ibuprofen to help with any pain

. Follow the advice of your surgeon on cleaning your eyes and what ointments and/or drops to use.

. Avoid wearing contact lenses, swimming, doing anything that might cause you to sweat, and avoid smoking for at least a week or for as long as your surgeon has recommended.

. Avoid any unnecessary bending, lifting or physical activities. These can all increase the blood flow to the eyes.

. Have everyday items placed within easy reach. This means that tins, bottles, kitchen utensils and bathroom items are all close to hand.

. Avoid reading, or watching television for the first week following your surgery. It may be tempting to have the remote control near you but watching television can dry the eyes out so avoid doing this.

    Can I put to sleep for eyelid surgery?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

  2. debby@23 says:

    Am I a good candidate for plastic surgery and is it important to give my doctor the list of my medical history?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      Individuals in good general health are typically good candidates for plastic surgery. It is very important for prospective patients to have realistic expectations for their surgery results. During your consultation with your plastic surgeon, it is important to openly discuss your previous medical history, plastic surgery goals and any concerns you have so that your surgeon can make an informed and realistic assessment about your candidacy for cosmetic surgery.

  3. anjella says:

    How much does a blepharoplasty cost? is it contain anesthesia or not?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      The average cost of cosmetic blepharoplasty(eyelid surgery) in iran is $680, according to 2018 statistics from the Iranian Society of Plastic Surgeons. Blepharoplasty costs in iran can widely vary. The average fee referenced above is only part of the total cost – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses

  4. Alena says:

    Is it really important to waer contact after blepharoplasty?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      For most patients, contact lenses can be worn again 10 days after cosmetic eyelid surgery. This is subject to the surgeon’s assessment of the patient’s recovery as well as the patient’s rate of recovery. Even at 10 days, you may want to wait a bit longer before you wear contacts again.

  5. allice says:

    Does blepharoplasty not make the face abnormal?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      hello dear Allice
      why should make the face abnormal let me explain
      Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure in which the eyelid skin, orbicularis oculi muscle, and orbital fat are excised, redraped, or sculpted to rejuvenate the esthetic look of the patient along with correction of any functional abnormality.
      so the best course of action is to do your surgery with a board certified plastic surgeon in order to make sure about the results of your procedure .

  6. Zeynab says:

    I have heard about a roumer that there is no way to reduce swelling after blepharoplasty,is it right?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      Pain management, especially with anti-inflammatory drugs, can keep the swelling manageable and help you rest. Keep your head elevated to reduce blood flow to the areas around the eyes, which can reduce swelling. Apply cold compresses to the surgical area, only if advised by your facial plastic surgeon.

  7. emily says:

    Hello dear doctor,
    I’m a 37 year old woman who is self-conscious about my uneven brows & my drooping, slightly hooded eyelids. I think they look a bit ‘baggy’ with excess skin, as do my lower eyelids. I also think my eyes point downwards at the outer corners. In the opinion of doctors on here, am I exaggerating & making a fuss over nothing? Does it look like ptosis? If it does look worth correcting, what treatment/s could correct it?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      Thank you for your question. You can be a suitable candidate for blepharoplasty surgery because it can remove excess skin around your eyes and improve the appearance and uniformity of your eyes.
      Best regards,

  8. LAN says:

    Wondering how to get rid of under eye wrinkles and hooded eyes. Would and upper and lower blepharoplasty work?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      it is highly likely that you will benefit from an upper and lower eyelid surgery, but it can be a good idea to book a consultation with a plastic surgeon for a surgical evaluation and assessment.

  9. fernanda says:

    Can I use blepharoplasty to dramatically change the look of my eyes?

  10. susan says:

    Can I use this surgery to dramatically change the look of my eyes?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      This is a very difficult question to answer because it fulfills one’s realistic expectations. Only a good, honest surgeon can inform the patient of his or her unrealistic expectations.
      And the answer will be varied for different people .To get a better answer to this question, we suggest that you ask those who have done this surgery in order to know they were satisfied with their operation or not.

  11. nine says:

    Can Belpharoplasty Allow Your Wrinkles, Lines, and Moods to Get Rid of Crow’s feet?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      Some patients, in addition to the sagging skin around their eyelids, on the skin around their eyes, have tissue or superficial disorders. People who perform blepharoplasty at the same time with skin smoothing techniques can also eliminate these tissue disorders on the surface of the skin. These include lasers and chemical cells.

  12. delliah-josefine says:

    Will there be an scar?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      Plastic surgeons warn patients that scar always comes after surgery. But the eyelids heal better than any other parts of the body. The reason for this is that scarring depends on the thickness of the skin and the eyelid has the thinnest skin. Eyelid scars are usually visible when your eyes are closed and someone is carefully looking for differences in your eyelids.

  13. Naila says:

    Hi there,
    I hope you are doing well and this finds you in good spirits – Happy Early New Years! I am living in the US and have had what appears to be ptosis in my right eye for about 7 years or so now – seems to be genetic but less medically/cosmetically invasive until more recently (I am currently 19, nearing 20). In the past three years or so, my eyelid has gotten very droopy and I am constantly having to lift my brow to get rid of the heavy weight. It also appears that the vision in my right eye is not that good compared to my left eye. Otherwise, my eyes are in good health. Surgeons in the US charge a very high price, and a lot of times, don’t do the surgery to my liking or in a way that makes me feel safe to go forward with this procedure.

    I would love to get a surgery done at the soonest and see if there is some way to get some financing options for this as I am a college student in the US and basically talk to someone. I would mean a lot for me to have the excessive skin removed and have my eyes even and feeling better. I would love to hear back and see what can be done. I am very much looking forward to your response. Thank you!
