Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that corrects sagging or droopy eyelids. It may involve
removal of excess skin, fat and muscle.
As a result of aging, eyelids may stretch and the eyelid muscles weaken. Excess fat therefore
accumulates above and below the lids causing them to droop. This greatly affects the peripheral
vision and can be improved by blepharoplasty.
Why blepharoplasty?
You may consider blepharoplasty if you have a:
- Droopy upper eyelids
-Excess skin in the upper eyelids that limit peripheral vision.
-Excess skin on the lower eyelids
-Bags under the eyelids
Many times blepharoplasty is carried out alongside other procedures such as skin resurfacing,
facelift or browlift.
What to expect
Before undergoing blepharoplasty, you will meet your surgeon and discuss your medical history. He
will guide you on the best way to go about it. A thorough physical examination will be done to check
your fitness for surgery. In the process, your vision will also have to be checked prior to the surgery.
During the pre operative visit, it is important to discuss your overall expectation with your surgeon.
This makes your calm and relaxed before and after the surgery.
Several photographs of the eye may have to be taken from different angles. This will help with the
planning of the surgery as well as assessing its short term and long term effects.
A few days before the surgery, you may have to stop taking drugs with increased risk of bleeding
such as warfarin, ibuprofen, aspirin and supplements or herbal medicines known to have the risks of
bleeding. You may also have to stop smoking because smoking impairs healing.
