Understanding Blepharoplasty

Understanding Blepharoplasty

If you have droopy eyelids with excessive fat, skin and muscle, blepharoplasty in Florida is a procedure which can help you correct it. With age, your eyelids stretch and the supporting muscles weaken. This results in excess fat gathering either above or below the eyelids causing sagging eyebrows and droopy lids with under eye bags.

Not only does this make you look older than you are, it also reduces vision on the upper and outer side vision field. Blepharoplasty eliminates all these issues making the eye appear alert and hence taking years off your appearance.

You should consider this procedure when you are unable to open your eyes completely due to droopy or sagging eyelids or when your lower eyelids are getting pulled down. Your vision will be improved when the extra tissue from your lower or upper eyelids is removed. You could even opt for another procedure in conjunction with blepharoplasty like a facelift or skin resurfacing for a complete facial rejuvenation.

If the condition has impaired your vision, then insurance may cover your surgery. If you opt for blepharoplasty simply to improve your appearance then the cost won’t be covered by your insurance.

Once you have decided to undergo the procedure, here are some associated risks you must be aware of:

  • Irritated and dry eyes, difficulty in closing your eyes and other problems with the eyelids

  • A rare risk could be blurred vision for some time or loss of sight

  • Infection, bleeding and visible scars

  • Other surgery associated risks like blood clot complications, pulmonary or cardiac risks and reactions to anesthesia.

  • Discoloration of the skin

  • A requirement for second surgery

When you opt for eyelid surgery, you must do so after being well informed about what the procedure is and the associated complications and risks. Weigh your benefits against all the risks and then determine if you really require this procedure at this time.

During consultation your doctor will want to know all about your medical history and expectations from the surgery in order to determine if you are a good candidate. More than likely, physical examination and vision examination will be performed.
