Eyelid Surgery/Blepharoplasty

Overview of the surgery:
An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty is a type of plastic surgery designed to restore a more youthful and rested appearance to your eyes. It can also improve your scope of vision if you have excessive upper eye lid skin that interferes with peripheral or
superior vision. A blepharoplasty can involve the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids or
both. Incisions are made in the natural creases in the upper and lower lids and are
very well hidden once healed. The surgery typically involves some skin removal and
re-suspension of the muscle and fat surrounding lids.
Operation Time:
It takes 1-2 hours depending if just upper lids or both upper and lower lids are being
addressed.
Type of Anesthesia use:
This surgery is usually done under local anesthesia or sedation
Hospital/clinic stay:
No hospital or clinics stay for this type of surgery.
Days to stay in Thailand:
At least 7 days.
Risks and Complications:
Complications are rare; however there are risks associated with any medical
procedure. Possible complications include: infection, bleeding (rare) but can cause
loss of vision, prominence of the scars, asymmetry in healing or scarring, dryness,
decrease sensation in the eyelid, difficulty closing the eyes, or any reaction to
anesthesia and in rare instances blindness. You can help minimize certain risks by
following the advice and instructions of your plastic surgeon, both before and after
your eyelid surgery.
Recovery Period:
While not a very painful operation, there is a fair amount of bruising and swelling
which can last 1-2 weeks. Sutures are generally removed 4-7 days after surgery and
make up can be worn once the stitches are out. Contact lenses can usually be worn
about 2 weeks after surgery.
Preparation Prior To Surgery:
 Medical history assessment (any allergies, serious medical condition and all
medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical
examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.

 Avoid smoking   for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes
with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
 Stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your
recovery period.
 Taking any medications should be avoided such as hormones, anticoagulants,
anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating
medical factors prior to surgery, and also avoid taking aspirin, anti-
inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
