Blepharoplasty

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is required to improve or enhance the appearance of the eyelids and the under-eye areas by removing unwanted skin from the upper eyelids and bagginess from the lower eyelids. This surgery is also called Blepharoplasty and includes removing the excess skin and muscle along with protruding fat pockets to get a smooth look in the upper and/ or lower lids. This is a very specialized surgery and can be undertaken only by well trained and experienced Cosmetic Surgeons such as Dr. Mohan Thomas. This surgery in the case of older people may also improve vision by removing the excess eyelid skin that may impede vision.

Why does the eyelid skin become loose?

    Aging is associated with degradation of the skin building material like collagen which causes loss of skin suppleness and drooping of skin. The support to the fat around the eyeballs is lost, and fat starts protruding in the lower lids as eye bags. The loose upper lid skin in association with a droopy eyebrow will give the look of a double lid and at times reduced vision in some directions. As the skin ages, natural substances like collagen which give it suppleness degrade and the skin starts to sag.

Who can undergo eyelid correction surgery or Blepharoplasty?

  • People older than 35 years of age, in good health and having eye bags or loose upper lid skin.
  • They should have realistic and reasonable expectations from the eyelid rejuvenation or blepharoplasty.
  • Best suited for people who do not smoke.
  • The effects of blepharoplasty, eye bag removal and eyelid rejuvenation surgery may last as long as 5-7 years. However, with increasing age, it is likely that you may experience the problem of sagging eyelid skin, and eye bags again.

How is the eyelid rejuvenation, blepharoplasty or eye bag removal procedure performed?

    This surgery is usually carried out under local anesthesia or with short general anesthesia. Blepharoplasty or eye bag removal may take approximately two hours for the whole procedure when both upper and lower eyelids are being operated upon. Dr. Mohan Thomas usually treats lower eyelid bags through a scarless and stitchless procedure. For treating the upper lid incisions are made on the eyelids and the surplus skin, fat and muscle are trimmed. It is then closed using very fine sutures.
