(Blepharoplasty) Eyelid Surgery In Pune

As we age, the muscles supporting our eyelids weaken, allowing excess fat to accumulate above and below them. This fat leads to sagging of eyebrows, droopy upper lids, and bags under your eyes. Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure for tightening droopy eyelids by removing excess such skin, muscle, and fat from under the eyes.

In your first consultation, Dr. Sanghvi will evaluate what can be done to improve the look of your eyes. Eyelid surgery must be uniquely planned based on the condition of the eyelids.
For example, some patients only need to have a correction on their lower lids, while others need both upper and lower eyelids.

Patients with droopy eyelids may only need to have skin removed, while patients with baggy eyelids may need both skin and fat removed.

Patients with “crows feet” or fine lines and wrinkles may need a combination of blepharoplasty with a light laser resurfacing or Botox for perfect solutions.

Our surgeon will consider all these factors and let you know if Blepharoplasty would be right for you.

Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is a popular treatment that is suggested to patients who need to:
  • Tighten droopy eyelids
  • Reshape the lids
  • Remove unwanted fatty bags from under the eyes
  • Realign the eyelids

Lower Lid Blepharoplasty: 

If you have bags under your eyes with loose hanging skin, an incision is made along the lash line of the lower eyelid or in the smile creases below the eye. Excess fat, muscle, and skin are removed. The incision is closed with fine sutures. These sutures are removed in 5 days after the procedure.

Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty:

If you have bags of fat beneath your lower eyelids, but do not need to have any loose skin removed, Dr. Sanghvi may recommend a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. In this procedure a slight incision is made inside your lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty does not tighten the skin but reduces the puffiness in the lower eyelid region.

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty: 

Now in the case of fat on the upper eyelid, an incision is made in the fold just below the eyebrow bone and extends into the outer creases of your eye. Excess skin and tissue are removed and the incision is stitched. Normally since the incision is in the fold, it is hardly visible.

You will need to avoid straining, bending, and lifting during the early postoperative period.
Blepharoplasty can make a significant difference in the appearance of the face, erasing the appearance of tiredness and old age by eliminating the excess, wrinkly skin beneath the eyes. Eyes appear fresher and more youthful, and the results may last for many years.
