Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that includes repair of droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As a person ages, the eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them become weak. As a result, excess tissue such as skin and fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, drooping upper lids and eye bags. This excess tissue of skin or fat are removed or repositioned and surrounding muscles and tendons may be reinforced to improve peripheral or side vision.
Some scars resulting from the incisions may take at least six months before they will fade. You are not to expose your eyes from too much sun during the healing period. A more rested and youthful appearance may be expected after healing. The results of surgery for some may last a lifetime but others may have recurring droopy eyelids.
Local anesthesia is usually administered prior to procedure. The surgeon generally works on the upper lids making an incision along the natural fold of the upper eyelid, removing the excess skin and fat under the skin. The surgeon will close the incision with tiny stitches leaving an invisible scar. The surgeon will proceed to make an incision on the lower lid just below the lashes or inside the lower lid, to remove or redistribute the excess fat, muscle or sagging skin. The surgeon will close the incision with tiny stitches following the lower lid’s natural crease. Blepharoplasty procedure in the Philippines usually takes less than two hours. After the procedure you will be in a recovery room for monitoring. Same day discharge may be made if no complications are observed.
Choosing the Best Doctor
How does a patient choose the best doctor or surgeon to perform blepharoplasty successfully? While most patients usually and initially consider the price or fee charged for the procedure, some others are realizing that it is important to look for a surgeon or doctor that has the right professional qualifications, training, experience and exposure in similar cases or conditions. You can’t expect to have successful results if the doctor or surgeon chosen had no experience whatsoever in blepharoplasty, nor should you expect a doctor without the proper accreditation in such specialization.
As a thriving business and industry, many doctors perform cosmetic or plastic surgery but not all of them have the proper training as plastic surgeons. Best results are expected from authentic plastic or cosmetic surgeons, with the training and years of experience essential for the success of your surgical procedure.
