“I could see my fast lifestyle had finally taken its toll on me. Even though I was only in my early 40s and slim I could see the intense signs of aging that made me look ten years older. Most noticeable were the bags under the eyes. I came across Aesthetics Medispa while searching for a good treatment online. Since undergoing the blepharoplasty procedure around 2 months back I have received compliments from everybody on how young I look now. I appreciate the excellent eyelid surgery done by the expert cosmetic specialists at Aesthetics Medispa.”
The eyes are the focal point of the face. They are our most intriguing and revealing facial feature and draw attention and convey expression. The first signs of ageing are usually seen around the eyes. Hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, bagginess, sagging of the eyelid skin, droopy eyelids, skin folds around the eye are some of the signs. Unfortunately, the signs of ageing can greatly impact the appearance of our eyes, so that what they reflect is not how we feel. The most common causes include heredity, ageing, chronic sun exposure and sun damage, pollution, irregular sleeping habits and chronic lack of sleep, significant fluctuations in weight, dietetic indiscretions indiscretions, and medical problems like hyper or hypothyroidism and liver diseases. Recent advances in cosmetic surgery now allow us to reduce and remove these changes around the eyes, a process called surgical rejuvenation or Blepharoplasty. Areas amenable for Blepharoplasty: Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can selectively be done for either the upper or lower eyelid. Usually both eyelids of both the eyes are done together for a complete rejuvenation. More often, it is combined with other procedures like facelift and brow lift for a comprehensive rejuvenation of the face.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY
An ellipse of loose skin of the upper eyelid is removed. If there is excess fat in the compartments around the eye causing bulges, this is removed. The wound is closed with a single absorbable stitch. For the lower eyelid blepharoplasty, the incision is made below the eyelashes. Once the skin and muscle has been lifted up, the fat is redraped over the bony rim of the orbit. This helps in reducing the naso-jugal groove depression, a prominent sign of ageing. The lower eyelid is then tightened by a procedure called canthopexy. Excess skin is then removed. Both the upper and lower eyelid scars heals very well and the scar is barely visible.
WHAT KIND OF ANESTHESIA IS REQUIRED?
Usually the procedure can be done under local anesthetic, but many would prefer a general anesthetic for improved comfort.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE SURGERY?
There might be bruising and swelling after the surgery that should subside in 3-6 weeks. Immediately after surgery, due to the swelling, you might experience some difficulty in opening your eyes. There could be slight irritation and a feeling of dry eye. This rapidly improves after te next day. Wounds normally heal in 7 days to 2 weeks. Your plastic surgeon at Aesthetics Medispa and the assisting staff will fully attend to your comfort and safety. You will be advised to apply an antibacterial ointment to the eye and protect the eyes from sun, wind and dust by wearing sunglasses. Eyelid surgery can offer dramatic improvement in the upper and lower eyelids and surrounding areas.
