Eyes are the first facial feature that reflects your age. Unhealthy eating habits, poor lifestyle, and stress along with the natural process of aging make them appear tired taking away freshness and charm from your face. This is when you can choose to undergo eyelid surgery. The eyelid surgery in India is gaining popularity among westerners as they can get the best results at many affordable prices. The world of plastic surgery has evolved and India has emerged as one destination that lets you undergo a procedure at a much reasonable price than anywhere else in the world. Not only the country is home to some of the most renowned cosmetic surgeons but also the hospitals are well-equipped with the most advanced technologies.
Eyes are the mirror to your soul. They are the most beautiful part of a face. However, it also shows the early signs of aging and stress that you might be having. The elimination of excess skin, fat deposits, and muscles around the lower and upper eyelids can dramatically alter the look of your face thus turning back the clock.
Also known as Blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery removes excess fat and skin deposits from upper eyelids, corrects drooping or sagging eyelids and eliminates fat pouches under the eyes giving your face a rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
Types of Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery can be categorized into three types:
Upper Eyelid Surgery – Usually, it is performed in aged people for restoring function for proper vision to do normal daily chores and activities.
Double Eyelid Surgery – This type of procedure is commonly performed in Asians and it is often called Asian Eyelid Surgery. A lid crease is introduced in the upper eyelid to give it a double lid appearance. One of the main reasons for an increasing number of people preferring undergoing this type of surgery in India is low cost and quality care and treatment.
Blepharoplasty can also be categorized in other ways too. It can be performed either for cosmetic or functional purposes. It can be performed alone or in combination with other facial procedures like a brow lift or a facelift to give your face a younger and fresher look. The surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation depending on the type and purpose of it.
The surgeon makes an incision below the eyelashes in the lower eye and along the upper eyelid crease followed by skin dissection, fat removal, and muscle tightening. Then the incision is closed with sutures. In some cases, a trans-conjunctival approach is used for avoiding external excision.
The procedure starts with the administration of anesthesia to a patient. The incision is made internally so that there is no scarring. It can remain inconspicuous by the natural anatomy of structures related to the eye. In upper eyelids, the incision is made in the natural folds of the eyelid for tightening appearance with the removal of excess fat and skin deposits.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
The incision is made in the lower lash line followed by the removal of excess fat and skin deposits. A trans-conjunctival incision is an alternative for lower eyelid surgery however there is no skin removal with this method. The incisions are sutured and dressed to heal.
Follow the instructions given by the surgeon for a smooth recovery. You can get back to normal activities in ten days. Avoid all kinds of strenuous activities and work for at least four to five weeks after the procedure.
Eyelid Surgery is a surgical procedure that can enhance your appearance giving you a younger-looking face with rejuvenated eyes and area around it. The field of vision is corrected and eyes look awake.
