What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is the surgery of the eyelids. The surgeons go into either the upper eyelid or the lower eyelid and take off excess skin.

Another thing that can be done during Blepharoplasty is to take off excess fat deposits.

What are the Types of Blepharoplasty?

There are two types of Blepharoplasty. One is the Upper Blepharoplasty, where you take off excess skin +/- any excess fat deposits.

Then there is Lower Blepharoplasty, where taking off the excess skin is called Subsidiary Blepharoplasty.

If taking out only the eyelid’s excess fat deposits, it is called Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty, and this is done without making an incision on the eyelid.

What are the risks of Blepharoplasty?

The most dangerous risk is Retrobulbar Hematoma, where you have a blood collection after the surgery. This, if not addressed immediately, will lead to blindness.

The other risks with regards to Blepharoplasty include taking off too much skin. This can lead to the patient not being able to close their eyes when they sleep.

Another risk is leaving a scar, especially on the lower eyelid. So you have to be very careful and talk to the patients about leaving a scar on the lower eyelid.

The upper eyelids will heal very well because any experienced surgeon would scar along the eyelid crease.

Who is an ideal candidate for a Blepharoplasty?

Anybody that comes in with excess skin/fat either on the upper eyelid or lower eyelid is an ideal candidate.

You have to assess the patient to ensure that your patient does not have a droopy brow that might be causing the eye to close or have droopiness.

Blepharoplasty Q & A

A blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess tissue and fat from the eyelid area. This type of enhancement can often be performed during another surgery, such as a facelift.

With age, skin stretches and muscles weaken. While the face tends to lose volume, fatty deposits above the lashes and under the eyelids make this area puffy and droopy.

The blepharoplasty procedure at Noble Cosmetic Surgery is appropriate if you’d like to tighten up the skin around your eyes, improve the appearance of sagging or wrinkles, and have younger, more alert-looking eyes.

In addition to impacting your appearance, sagging skin around the eyes can impair vision. Peripheral (side) vision is most commonly affected. A blepharoplasty procedure makes your eyes look younger and reduces the risk of vision complications.

Dr. Obasi performs the blepharoplasty as an outpatient procedure. First, he ensures that you’re given an oral or IV sedative and that your eyelids are numbed.

Treating the upper area first, Dr. Obasi makes a precise incision along the fold of the eyelid. He removes excess skin and fat and tightens underlying muscles. The incision is closed with fine sutures.

If your lower lids need to be addressed, he makes an incision below the lashes or inside the lid. He removes or redistributes fat and then repositions and tightens the skin before closing the incision.

You’re monitored closely after the procedure and sent home with post-operative instructions about cleaning and caring for your eyelids. Dr. Obasi might also prescribe eye drops or ointments to speed the healing process.

After a few days, you’ll return to Dr. Obasi’s office to have the stitches removed. Most patients resume a regular routine in about ten days.

Like any other cosmetic surgery, eyelid surgery can pose potential risks. As a delicate area of the body, complications of a blepharoplasty might include:

  • Eye irritation or dryness
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Temporary blurred vision or, in rare cases, loss of eyesight

Dr. Obasi is always happy to discuss potential risks and whether or not you’re a good candidate for a blepharoplasty procedure. Get the look you’ve always wanted: Book an appointment with Dr. Obasi by phone or online today.
