Blepharoplasty is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes.

Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

Removing excess tissue from your upper eyelids can improve your vision. Upper and lower lid blepharoplasty can make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

Before operation stop taking warfarin, aspirin, ibuprofen , naproxen sodium, naproxen, and any other medication or herbal supplement associated with increased bleeding.

If you have surgery on your upper and lower eyelids, the surgeon generally works on your upper lids first. He or she cuts along the fold of the eyelid, removes some excess skin, muscle and possibly fat, and closes the cut.

After surgery you spend time in a recovery room, where you are monitored for complications.

Use ice packs on your eyes for 10 minutes every hour the night after surgery. The following day, use ice packs on your eyes four to five times throughout the day.

Gently clean your eyelids and use prescribed eyedrops or ointments.

Avoid straining, heavy lifting and swimming for a week.

Avoid strenuous activities, such as aerobics and jogging, for a week.

Avoid rubbing your eyes.

After a few days, return to the doctor’s office to have stitches removed, if needed.

Many people express satisfaction with the results of blepharoplasty, such as a more rested and youthful appearance and more self-confidence.
