What Is Blepharoplasty Surgery?

Due to accidents and traumas, our body goes through changes, and as a result, deformities are seen. Fixing any such deformity that was caused to the eyelid is called blepharoplasty surgery. This surgery can also be performed for aesthetic reasons as well, which is why blepharoplasty is also considered to be cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is nothing but a type of medical procedure that is generally performed for aesthetic purposes.

Blepharoplasty surgery has various aspects. The procedure followed is complicated and sensitive which requires great skill. It is done for both men and women, and the procedure is similar to other cosmetic procedures. Considering the age factor, the procedure is carried out by middle-aged persons.

Purpose Of Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is not just cosmetic surgery, but also reconstructive surgery. The purpose generally depends upon the requirement or need of the person. To generalize, the fundamental purpose of blepharoplasty surgery is to repair the saggy or misshapen eyelids that make you look older. Saggy eyelids not only make you look older but also alter your vision. Therefore, they are treated through this medical procedure.

The surgery is not always covered by insurance. If the procedure is being performed for aesthetic purposes, it is generally not covered by the insurance. However, if the surgery is reconstructive surgery for the repair of the damaged eyelid, it can be covered by the insurance. In the end, you will have a story to tell with your blepharoplasty scar.

Risks And Possible Side Effects:

When you make unnatural changes in your body, you must know that these changes come with certain risks. Even cosmetic surgeries done for aesthetic reasons have certain risks. Blepharoplasty surgery has certain risks as well that may follow after the procedure.

The surgery can leave a noticeable scar which will take time to suit your face. Also, in the process, the eye muscles can get injured and a follow-up surgery may be required. Other post-surgery effects that can be seen include dry and irritated eyes, eyelid problems like difficulty in closing or widening your eyes, blurry vision for a short period, or loss of eyesight in very rare cases. Eyes are delicate organs and with blepharoplasty surgery, the eyes may become prone to infection and even cause bleeding at times. Discoloration in the skin may also be seen after the completion of the surgery.

The risks shall differ as per the health and requirement of the patient. Therefore, it is necessary to consult your doctor and estimate the benefits and risks that you are prone to. The performing doctor will know what’s best for you and what’s not.

Benefits From This Surgery:

Apart from the blepharoplasty scar, there are benefits of the surgery that you can count on. After the successful completion of the procedure, you will have improved eyesight. The blepharoplasty surgery will repair the eyelid and tighten the eye muscles, getting rid of the barrier that was coming in between your vision. It will also make you look younger when you treat your saggy eye sacs. Your face will look less tired and fresher post-surgery.

The surgery will also contribute to your self-confidence and boost your self-esteem. The blepharoplasty scar is temporary, better vision and younger appearance is long term. The best part about the surgery is that it can be done by both men and women.

Results:

The blepharoplasty surgery on completion can have different outcomes for different patients. For some, the surgery may last a lifetime while for some the saggy eyelids may come back. You must take proper follow-up sessions with your doctor so that there are no post-surgery complications. You must consult the performing surgeon for the same.

The blepharoplasty scar may last for quite a while, but that should not affect the medical benefits of the surgery. You can still have a better and clear vision and the surgery will make you look younger still.
