As the aging process begins, the skin, muscle and adipose tissue of the eyelids become weak and loose. As a person ages, his eyelids expand, and the muscles that support the eyelids are no longer able to do so because they weaken over time. As a result, fat is expected to accumulate above and below the eyelids. In addition to the fact that this may make the appearance of your face appear older, this excess of skin in the drooping eyelids may limit the field of view. Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that can restore beauty and youth to your eyes and eyelids. Blepharoplasty is intended to treat drooping eyelids, by removing excess skin, muscles, and fatty tissue. This surgery is not recommended for people with diabetes, Grave's disease, hypothyroidism, dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and hypertension.
Before deciding to undergo surgery, patients must meet with a cosmetic surgeon or send a photo of their eyes to decide on the efficacy of the surgery in their condition. Some vision and eyelid tests may also be required. The doctor may ask the patient before the blepharoplasty about patients’ medical history and conditions like dry eyes, glaucoma, allergic response or sensitivity in the eye, and other eye problems. The patient must inform the doctor if there is problems with the blood circulation or thyroid gland, or if he/she suffers from diabetes or any other difficult disease. It is also expected that the doctor will ask before performing the surgery about the medications that the patient is taking chronically, including those that do not need a prescription. You should make sure that you inform the doctor about all the natural food supplements you eat, some of which contain ginkgo, ginseng or garlic, and ginger, which will double the risk of bleeding. Before performing the surgery, the patient will be asked to stop taking certain medications (such as aspirin, ibuprofen), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and plant-based food supplements known to cause bleeding. It is recommended that you stop taking these medications two weeks before surgery. These medications can only be resumed if the surgeon approves of this. The patient must refrain from exposing the eyelid skin to sunlight for a week before the date of eyelid surgery and after that for 3 months. Smoking should also be stopped a few weeks before surgery.
