One of the first areas you will start to notice the signs of ageing is the eyes. Wrinkles and lines commonly appear around the eye area and is caused by drooping skin and excess fat that has developed over time. As the skin of the upper eyelid starts to droop, a person will start to look tired and older. In order to remedy this and restore a more youthful appearance, a blepharoplasty can be performed.
A blepharoplasty is an aesthetic cosmetic procedure that involves surgery on the eyelids. The purpose of the surgery is to remove excess skin and fat from the eyelids. This helps to eliminate bags and open up the eyes, resulting is a more youthful, relaxed appearance.
How the procedure is done
The surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia, however general anaesthetic can be used when requested. Your surgeon will begin by making incisions behind or beneath the lashes of your lower lid and along the crease of your upper eyelid. Once the incisions have been made, the excess skin and fat can then be removed. In some cases, re-draping the muscles is necessary.
After the surgery patients may feel sore around the eyes. In order to reduce bruising and swelling, the patient’s head should be elevated for a few days. The stiches used to close the incisions will be removed 2–7 days after the eye surgery. Usually patients can return to normal activities after 10 days, however this will vary depending on the patient.
What complication could occur?
Any surgery comes with some risks so it is important to talk with your surgeon regarding any possible complications that could occur during or after the procedure. With blepharoplasty, risks and complications can include:
- Reaction to anaesthesia
- Blurred or double vision, which is usually temporary
- Whiteheads, which can be removed
- Having trouble closing the eyelids completely while sleeping – often temporary and very rarely permanent
While there are many people that wish to undergo a cosmetic procedure, there are a number of factors that inhibit them from having it done. One of the major issues that arise with this type of surgery is the cost. As cosmetic procedures are not covered by Medicare, the cost for the procedure may be too excessive for it to be a plausible option for some people.
The price of surgery is one of the many reasons individuals choose to have their procedures internationally. Cosmetic tourism is a great alternative for people who wish to undergo a cosmetic procedure without the excessive prices they could expect in their home country. As well as a lower price, patients undergoing procedures overseas may also experience shorter waiting times.
