Eyelid surgery is the answer to a person’s desire to be able to alter the current appearance of his or her eyes. This is not as cut and dried as many people think since there are a lot of alterations that can be done to the lids. There are also the different preferences of the patient to consider. The varied techniques and methods employed by the plastic surgeon to achieve the desired results are dependent on what the patient needs and wants as well as what the surgeon is capable of.
The standard operation that a patient undergoes during an eyelid surgery is usually to remove the excess skin and fats that may have deposited in the upper or lower lids of the patient. In some cases, the muscles, tissues and tendons of the area may be rearranged in order for them to function properly once more. The removal of excess skin and fat in the area is a major operation that requires that the patient be given general anesthesia. An overnight stay at the hospital may be recommended especially since the patient may need to have his or her eyes covered with bandages. A quadruple blepharoplasty means that both the upper and lower lids of both eyes will undergo the procedure. The end result of this surgical process is a refreshed look that exposes the eyes and creates a generally younger looking appearance.
Another technique to this form of cosmetic surgery is the correction of the function of the lids in order for the patient to have better vision. Sometimes excess skin may obscure the vision of the individual. This needs to be removed not for aesthetic reasons but for functional ones. This usually involves the upper lids and seldom if rarely, the lower ones.
This technique is almost always performed on Asians. More than half of the people from Asian descent may have a single lid instead of a double one. The fold is sometimes missing in individuals of Asian descent. Eyelid surgery is often performed to achieve the double eyelids effect in individuals who wish to alter their appearance.
In the basic blepharoplasty procedure, incisions are made in the appropriate places to facilitate the removal of the fat and the trimming of excess skin. In the Asian version, the procedure also requires making incisions to facilitate making the necessary fold to create the double lid effect. In the Asian version, a reversal of the operation can be done as well if the patient is dissatisfied with the results; whereas, in the standard version, the occurrence of fat and excess skin in the lids can repeat itself due to the person’s diet and lifestyle.
