The eyes are the most beautiful and alluring features of the face. Unfortunately, for some people, their beauty is diminished by baggy or droopy eyelids or excess skin on the eyelids. These problems can prevent someone from completely opening their eyes or can cause the lower eyelids to be pulled down. They can also make them look older and obstruct their vision!
In these cases, the most effective solution is to opt for blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure in which the excess skin and fat in the eyelids are removed and the skin around the eyelids is tightened. It can be performed on both upper and lower eyelids for aesthetic and functional reasons.
Blepharoplasty can be performed in combination with another cosmetic procedure like a facelift, browlift, or skin resurfacing.
The following is a list of criteria for an ideal candidate for blepharoplasty:
A person who is physically and mentally overall healthy
A person who has functional or cosmetic concerns about their eyelids
A person who has realistic expectations from the surgery
If you fit the above criteria, then you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty.
During the consultation, Dr. Vasant Gholave, Director of Arra Aesthetics, Pune, will discuss with the patient their detailed medical history, including any previous facial surgeries or conditions like dry eyes, glaucoma, or allergies. He will also ask about any medications or supplements the patient might be taking.
Dr. Gholave will conduct a physical examination and enquire when the patient had last gotten a vision test. This will help him determine whether the patient needs blepharoplasty for cosmetic reasons or functional reasons. He will photograph the patient’s eyes from different angles, as this will help him plan the surgery.
At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, we believe that open communication between the doctor and the patient is necessary for the best results. That is why Dr. Vasant Gholave will discuss with the patients their desires and goals from the surgery. He will explain the detailed procedure to them, including possible risks. He will also explain the best possible results of the procedure so that the patient has realistic expectations. Dr. Gholave will answer all of the patient’s doubts so that the patient can go through the surgery without any fears.
If the blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is done simply for aesthetic reasons, the procedure will not be paid for by insurance. However, if a medical or functional cause of blindness is identified, insurance may cover the repair. The following factors have an impact on the overall prices of blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery in India:
Fees for consultation with the doctor
Medical staff fees
Cost of the surgical facility
Cost of pre-surgical tests, and post-surgery dressings and garments
The cost of blepharoplasty is determined by a number of factors, such as the type of surgery performed, the technique utilized, the surgeon's experience and expertise, the clinic or hospital's location, and facility accreditation.
The average cost of blepharoplasty ranges from Rs. 50,000/- to Rs. 80,000/- + 18% GST at Arra Aesthetics, Pune. Dr. Vasant Gholave will discuss every aspect of the cost of blepharoplasty with you during consultation.
Since blepharoplasty is a minimally invasive surgery, there usually aren’t any specific requirements or procedures the patient must go through before the surgery. However, Dr. Vasant Gholave, Director of Arra Aesthetics, Pune, might require the patient to undergo some routine blood or urine tests.
The patient may be asked to stop taking certain medications if they could cause complications during the procedure. If the patient smokes, they will be asked to stop smoking at least a few weeks before the surgery.
Blepharoplasty is usually performed in the following steps:
Step 1: Local anesthesia is administered. In cases where other surgeries may be performed along with blepharoplasty, general anesthesia is administered.
Step 2: If the surgery is to be performed on both eyelids, the surgeon usually works on the upper lids first. He makes incisions along the fold of the eyelid and removes the excess skin and muscle. The surgeon may also either remove excess fat or redistribute it.
Step 3: The surgeon then closes the incision.
Step 4: For the lower eyelid, the surgeon makes the incision just below the eye’s natural crease or inside the lower lid. Then, he removes the excess skin, muscle, and fat. The surgeon may redistribute the fat.
Step 5: Finally, the surgeon closes the incision on the lower lid.
After the surgery, the patient will be monitored for a few hours to ensure that no complications will occur. They will be able to go home later that day.
The patient may suffer from some bruising, swelling, and redness after the procedure. This is perfectly normal and will fade away within a few days. The surgeon may also prescribe ointment, antibiotics, and painkillers to the patient.
For at least 48 hours after the procedure, cold packs must be applied to the eyes. The surgeon may even ask the patient to apply warm compresses for the first 48 to 72 hours after the surgery. It is necessary for the patient to follow all the instructions of the surgeon carefully, to ensure a safe and quick recovery.
Usually, the patient can resume their daily routine after 3 days, though they are advised not to perform any physically strenuous activities for at least 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery.
Though blepharoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure, it is a surgical procedure. So it carries certain risks like:
Temporary inability to completely close the eyelids
Possible vision loss from retrobulbar hemorrhage
Wrongly positioned eyelids
Overcorrection (removing too much skin)
Undercorrection (not removing enough skin)
These risks are rare and can be avoided by selecting a surgeon who is skilled and experienced. Dr. Vasant Gholave is the founder of Arra Aesthetics, Pune, and his priority is ensuring the patient’s safety and satisfaction during any procedure.
