Blepharoplasty

FAQS

An ideal candidate has:

  Tired looking eyes and drooping eyelids

  Dark circles under the eyes or puffy bags under the eyes

  Deep tear troughs

  Hooding of the eyelids

  Prominent Crow’s feet

Before starting the procedure, Dr. Chugh will make exact markings to give you the desired look. You will be then given local anaesthetic so that procedure is pain free. Incisions are then made in line with the natural skin creases of your upper eyelid and just beneath the lashes or behind the lower eyelid. The extra skin is then excised, with or without a strip of the underlying muscle along with prominent fat bulges.

Scars are given in a way that they are not visible. For upper eyelids, incision is given in natural crease. Incision for the lower eyelid most of the time is made right through inner side (Transconjuctival) so that scar is hidden or sometimes under the eyelashes, where the eyeliner is put.

All scars are well hidden or camouflaged by special technique that Dr. Chugh uses.

Safety, natural results, quick recovery, and very less downtime are the key benefits.

It’ s an outpatient procedure done usually in 45 mins. You can go home after that.

Recovery period:

Keep two- three pillows under your head as it helps in reducing swelling.

Day 2 Can resume normal activity. Keep on applying cold compression and eye ointment and eye drops.

Day 3 onwards: Shift to warm compressions to fasten healing. Apply topical eye ointment.

Day 5 Sutures will be removed.

Day 10-14 Most of the swelling and bruising has subsided.

Blepharoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedure done globally. If done by a well- trained board certified plastic surgeon results are good and patients are happy. You will look your best at 6-12 months after surgery.

Blepharoplasty is a very safe procedure in trained hands. However if done without proper training and after care. There can be issues like bruising, blood collection, visible scars, blurry vision and dry eyes.

Surgery is the gold standard but in some cases injectables, lasers, microneedling can be offered. Results with these procedures are temporary though.

Persons of oriental descent (North east of India, China, Koreans, Japanese) have eyelids which lack the eyelid fold. It can either be due to non – attachment of eyelid muscle to skin or more fat in upper eyelid.

So it involves creation of double eye fold. It is a simple surgery which requires finesse and Dr. Chugh ensures that results look natural.
