Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty addresses the droopy appearance of the upper eyelids and baggy lower lids. Eyelid surgery should create a natural and more youthful appearance. Excess eyelid fat, redundant skin and muscle may be removed or repositioned. If the excess skin of the eyelids is obstructing part of the visual field, the procedure might be covered by the insurances. Blepharoplasty may be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures.

The Preoperative visit

Consultation for blepharoplasty consists of an extensive evaluation and discussion of the patient's expectations and concerns. A history and evaluation of the patient's eyes and eyelids will be performed. The available surgical options and Dr. Soltanianís recommendations will be reviewed, including the limitations and risks of the surgery. Photographs will be reviewed.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in their expectations. Most are in their mid thirties and older, but if you have a family predisposition to droopy and baggy eyelids you may decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age.

The Surgery

Eyelid surgery is usually performed in a hospital. In most cases surgery is performed under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation or general anesthesia depending on the patientís comfort level. Several different surgical techniques are available depending on the patient's needs. Surgery usually takes under two hours. The patient will be provided with thorough written pre and postoperative instructions.

Recovery and Results

Discomfort after blepharoplasty is usually managed well with small amount of pain medication. Sutures are removed in about 5 days. Most of the swelling and bruising resolves within 10-14 days. In most cases results will last for years and may be permanent. Scars are usually well camouflaged.
