Different types of blepharoplasty


Different types of blepharoplasty

When you meet somebody, the first thing you will notice is the eyes. When you have sagging skin, saggy eyelids and wrinkles, they may make you look aged, stressed out or overtired. With blepharoplasty, you can tighten your wrinkles and remove the unwanted fat at the eyelids so that you may look many years younger once again.

Blepharoplasty is known as an eyelid surgery or eye lift. It is now a common procedure and it can be done at the upper or lower eyelids and sometimes on both so that the patient can be given an alert and more rested appearance.

Different blepharoplasty types

There are many variations which a patient may choose from when it comes to getting the surgery. You can ask the physician about the available options and choose the one that fits you better. You may decide if you will get the surgery at the lower or upper eyelid.

The options available:

  • Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is done on the inside of your lower lid
  • Laser blepharoplasty uses lasers and it seals blood vessels when it meets them. This leads to less swelling and bleeding
  • Asian blepharoplasty also called double eyelid surgery

The benefits of blepharoplasty

After getting the procedure done, you will get a refreshed look and you will achieve a symmetrical face. The surgery, in certain cases, will improve the vision of the patient when the sagging skin has been hampering vision.

If you would like to get the surgery, you will have to keep in mind many factors. Get a quote from different surgeons to know how much you should expect to pay. You should be aware of all the costs such as anesthesia, surgery, medication and lab tests. If the procedure is not recommended by the doctor, then your insurance will not pay for it. When getting this surgery, ensure that the advantages you expect to get will outweigh the risks you are exposed to.

After the procedure, prepare a special ointment to use on the incision to lubricate it.  Ice packs and ice eye pads will keep down the bruising and swelling. The doctor may suggest that you use eye drops so that you can avoid an infection and help with pain management.
