Eyelid Surgery Process
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids.Our eyelids are the thinnest skin on our bodies so,signs of aging will begin to appear around our eyes earlier than other areas.Skin loses its elaticity as skin ages ,lack of elasticity and pull from gravity causes excessive skin to collect on theupper and lower eyelids.  Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both. 
If you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.eyelid surgery help restore a naturally refresned apperance to the eyes
What does eyelid surgery treat ?
  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision 
  • Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids 
  • Bags under the eyes 
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris 
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid 
Whom eyelid surgeries can be applied to
  • Healthy individuals with no medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals 
  • Most are 35 and older 
  • Individuals without serious eye conditions 
Remember that the eyelids are part of the face. The appearance of a drooping upper lid may also be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrow. Sometimes stretching out of the upper eyelid muscle may cause a drooping eyelid. This is called eyelid ptosis and requires a different surgical treatment.

Upper Eyelid Surgery
If your eyes look tired, as though you are unhappy or less alert than you feel and your upper eyelids seem to lack contour or obscure your upper eyelashes, Sagging, wrinkled skin on the upper eyelids can cause this type of appearance, and upper eyelid surgery can help remove the excess skin and restore a naturally youthful shape to your eyelids and a more open, refreshed appearance to your eyes. 
Upper eyelid surgery typically involves an incision made in the natural crease above the eye, through which your cosmetic surgeon will remove a precise amount of excess skin and fat and/or adjust the surrounding muscles to make the desired improvements.

Lower Eyelid Surgery
Lower eyelid surgery can be an excellent solution to correct eyelid bags. There are a variety of surgical techniques that cosmetic surgeons can use to improve the lower eyelids; incisions are generally located on the outer edge of the lower eyelid, just beneath the eyelashes or inside the eyelid .we will explain thebest approach for you. 
Through the incisions, we will remove or reposition fat to create a smooth, natural contour beneath the eyelid. Depending on the case, excess, sagging skin may be removed or the lower eyelid muscle may be tightened to provide the most natural, effective results. 

Combining Eyelid Surgery with Another Procedure
If you are like many patients, you may want to address aging in a few different areas of your face. While eyelid surgery alone can significantly rejuvenate your appearance, it’s quite common to have a facelift, brow lift, or both performed in conjunction with an eyelid lift to achieve more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. A brow lift will address sagging skin and deep furrows above the eyes, while a facelift will address jowling, sagging, and wrinkles on the cheeks and neck. 
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, and typically lasts from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending upon whether or not you are having another procedure performed at the same time.

Recovery
During the first 1 to 2 weeks after eyelid surgery, patients commonly have some visible bruising and swelling, and your eyelids may feel unusually tight. However, most patients report feeling more soreness than pain. Using cold compresses and keeping your head elevated while you sleep can help alleviate discomfort. 
Most patients feel well enough to make short trips (do not drive yourself until your cosmetic surgeon gives you clearance to do so) after about a week, and return to their jobs 10-14 days after an eyelid lift.  It’s always important to follow our instructions after eyelid surgery to ensure your newly rejuvenated eyelids heal optimally. 
Expect your eyes to get tired more quickly than usual for the first few weeks, and it’s important to let them rest as needed. If your job requires you constantly to be at a  computer, consider resuming work part-time initially, then gradually increasing your workload as you continue to recover. 
You must protect your eyes from the sun and wind. Wear dark sunglasses with frames that provide plenty of coverage whenever you go outdoors, and follow your cosmetic surgeons’ instructions about applying sunscreen after eyelid surgery. 
You will have to avoid lifting, straining, and bending down to pick things up for up to 4 weeks after eyelid surgery. This can be an inconvenient restriction, but it is crucial that you do not induce sudden increases in blood pressure until your incisions have healed adequately.
