Eyelid Surgery in Dubai

As you grow older, the eyelids get stretched, and the muscles responsible for supporting the eyelids become weakened. This may result in extra fat accumulating around your eyelids and cause sagging eyebrows, bags under the eyes, and dropped upper lids while lessening your side vision. With Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery), you can get rid of excess tissue from your upper eyelids and can improve your vision. Lower and upper lid blepharoplasty can revive your eyes to look fresh and younger than ever besides being more attentive.

 

What is Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty, typically known as eyelid surgery, is meant to treat dangling eyelids that may be responsible for ageing your face. The skin encircling our eyes is the most fragile in our bodies, and ageing tends to begin to appear around our eyes making it difficult to apply eye make-up.  Serious cases of eyelid ptosis mean that a patient’s field of vision is hindered.

Eyelid Surgery – The Complete Procedure

Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, the doctor will go through any questions or concerns you may have about your procedure. They will also go through associated risks. During your in-depth consultation, you will have the ability to see what your eyelid procedure results will look like with an advanced system called the Crisalix 3D Imaging software. The 3D image is created with a specialized camera.

The Procedure

Blepharoplasty generally involves the removal of extra skin or fat from upper as well as lower eyelids, thus reviving a renewed look and offering the eyes an extra plump and young outlook.

The process is conducted with local sedation and anesthesia. To reduce visibility, incisions are always made around natural skin folds and creases. Once the incisions are in position, extra skin and fat are peeled away, and fine hems are used to cover the gaps. The “transconjunctival” eyelid surgery deals solely with the disposal of excess fat, no stitches are used.

The doctor may apply one of these two surgery techniques:

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

An incision is placed along the natural crease of the upper eyelid & excess eyelid skin and fat are removed to restore the eyelids to a more youthful aesthetic. The upper eyelid muscles are repositioned as necessary, tightening the upper eyelids.

Advantages

  • Upper eyelid drooping is corrected
  • Improves impairs vision from eyelid ptosis
  • Improves and smooths wrinkles around the eyes
  • No visible scarring

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty

In lower eyelid surgery, an incision is made below the lash line or inside the eyelid, commonly known as the transconjunctival approach. This incision is created to reposition fat that causes puffiness and tighten the lower eyelid.

Advantages

  • Improve puffiness around the eyes
  • Improves the appearance of eye bags and chronic fatigue
  • No visible scarring

Post-surgery Care Guidelines

After the process, no bandages are applied, and stitches, when they are used, are generally discarded within four days. It’s noticed that most blepharoplasty patients are up and about in just one or two days of the process.

The surgery will generally last between 45 minutes to 2 hours, dependent upon whether you are having other procedures take place at the same time, or if you are combining both upper and lower eyelid surgery. Typically, tightness in the eyelid region & difficulty closing your eyes, blurry vision, dry eyes, and itchy eyes are all to be expected. Bruising and swelling is also normal, as the tissues and sensory nerves heal.

It is recommended to take all medications as prescribed by the clinic and continue to keep your head elevated, even during sleeping. You will have to avoid lifting, straining, and bending down to pick things up for up to 4 weeks after eyelid surgery and you must protect your eyes from sun and wind. Generally, patients feel ready to return to desk jobs 10 – 14 days post-surgery.
