Candidates:
Adults of all ages can benefit from blepharoplasty. Patients in their 20s or30s might improve their inherited traits that can make them look older ortired. Patients with excess skin or puffy appearance on the upper eyelids,excess skin, bags and dark circles on the lower eyelids.


Objectives:
The eyelid procedure can be designed according to the problem. If only theupper eyelids are affected there is no need to operate on the lower eyelids,and vice versa. If the problem is only caused by excess fat, with no skinexcess, there is no need to remove skin. If excess skin is the problem, theremight not be necessary to remove fat. Usually, however, with a patient in theirforties of fifties, there is usually the need to correct the drooping uppereyelids and puffy bags below the eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle.Sometimes a forehead lift is recommended if the upper eyelid condition isaccompanied by sagging of the eyebrows. A chemical peel can be necessary ifthere is dark pigmentation forming circles around the eyes. Crow's feet can betreated simultaneously through laser resurfacing.


Incisions and technique:
I prefer to do blepharoplasty using a CO2 laser. The technique will depend onthe problem, the excess fat and skin in the eyelid areas, and the position ofthe eyebrows. In the upper eyelid the incision is hidden within the naturalfold and extends to the outside corner of the eye. Excess skin and fat areremoved. The incision is performed with the laser and there is no bleeding. Thelower eyelid fat pockets are removed through an incision placed inside thelower eyelid. There is no need for stitches. If there is a need to removeexcess skin and muscle another incision is hidden just below the lower lashes,easily camouflaged by natural creases. The laser may be used to tighten thelower eyelid skin.

Operating Time:

1 to 3 hours. Anesthesia:Usually locally with sedation or general.

In/Outpatient:
Usually outpatient.


Recovery period:
There is usually no pain, just temporary discomfort, swelling, bruising,itching of eyes, tearing and sensitivity to light for a few days.

Recovery:
Reading: 2 or 3 days. Back to work: 7 to 10 days. Contact lenses: two weeks.Exercising about 3 weeks. Bruising and swelling may take several weeks todisappear, but usually with makeup or dark glasses the aspect is almost normal.

Risks:
Hematoma (accumulation of blood under the skin that may require removal),infection and reactions to anesthesia. Temporary blurred or double vision.Bleeding, dry eyes, slight asymmetry in healing or scarring. There might be atemporary difficulty in closing eyes completely (rarely permanent). If there isa pulling down of the lower lids it may require further surgery. Blindness isextremely rare.


Details:
Besides the normal pre-operative exams you will be asked to do an eye test. Thefirst evening after surgery, you should rest quietly with your head elevated.You should apply cold compresses to your eyelids to increase comfort. Stitchesare usually removed after five to seven days.
