Some people may have excess sagging skin around the eyes. Even excess bagginess is seen in lower eyelids of some people. This is due to excess fat depositions and absence of the correct bridge between cheek fat and lower eyelids. Cosmetic surgeons perform eyelid surgery that is clinically known as blepharoplasty to remove excess sagging skin on upper eyelids and to adjust the fat deposits on the lower eyelids to get rid of bagginess of the particular part.
This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons. Sometimes sagginess of skin in the upper eyelids causes obstacle in vision for older people. This issue can also be corrected by removing the excess skin. To have other facial issues such as dark circles, wrinkles and cow’s feet this surgery can be performed in combination with laser resurfacing and forehead lifts.
Blepharoplasty surgeon use local anesthesia by injecting pain killer around eyes along with oral sedation. The surgery would take around two hours if both upper and lower eyelid is to be operated.
For upper lids surgeon take smaller incisions along the natural line of the eyelid. Then they separate the skin from fat deposits using tiny surgical tools and remove excess fat and the skin. Later they stitch the incisions with smaller stitches that remain for 3-6 days.
For lower lids surgeons take smaller incisions inside the lids at the bottom of eyes that are not visible. Surgeons use erbium laser to soften the fine lines appearing on lower eyelids. In order to remove excess fat or to adjust the available fat in a bit lower area to reduce bagginess, surgeons take incisions along the eyelash margin. In some cases instead of removing fat they change the placement of fat deposit to reduce pouch like hump below eyes and to gain the proper shape for the bridge between lower eyelids and cheek fat.
