Blepharoplasty (Eyelid surgery) in Delhi

Blepharoplasty or Eye lift, is the surgery of eyelids which helps to give them a more refreshing, awake and youthful. It is usually done on droopy or sagging upper eyelid or there is appearance of bulge in lower eyelid either due to ageing or chronic stress or skin laxity.

Patient who can benefit from eyelid surgery are those who have:

  • Tired looking eyes
  • Hooded eyelids
  • Sagging eyelids
  • Puffiness or puffy bags under the eyes
  • Deep tear trough (under eye hollowness)

Procedure

In this surgery the excess of eyelid skin and fat are excised so as to give more youthful and refreshing appearance. In case of lower lid surgery, the fatty bulge is corrected either by fat repositioning or limited fat removal which helps in improving the hollowness of under eye region an giving a rejuvenated look.

All incisions are made in natural eyelid creases so that scar blends with it easily and fades in due course of time.

Anesthesia

Blepharoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia but can be done under general anesthesia depending upon the surgical plan, patient and surgeon preference. A simple upper or lower eyelid blepharoplasty where only skin or fat is excised can be performed under local anesthesia.
