Blepharoplasty surgery is the cosmetic surgical procedure for correcting physical deformities of the eyelids, cheeks, ears, mouth, and other facial features; and for enhancing the appearance of one’s eyes. As there are multiple types of blepharoplasty, the type of procedure you undergo will be determined by several factors, including your age, current medical condition, and your lifestyle. If you’re a woman, you’ll most likely undergo this procedure at an eye clinic. Although women do not need the same degree of care as men do when it comes to their eyes, they do still require a similar level of care in the case of blepharoplasty.
During the surgical techniques of this procedure, the surgeon will first cut through the skin and remove any excess tissue that may impede the operation. This area will then be stitched up, and the incision made on the side of your eye. The surgeon will then make several tiny incisions into the lower lid of your eye. These small openings are the entryway for the blepharotomy probe that will be used to remove excess skin. Once the incisions are made, a balloon-like instrument is used to cut away the excess tissue, which is the blepharoscope.
After the surgical process is completed, the physician will stitch back the remaining tissue over the area. The surgeon will then use an instrument to reshape the area around the implant if required, to allow the new implant to properly fit in. After this, a bandage will be placed over the wound, which will help the wound heal.
Blepharoplasty surgery is very popular for men. Men often have large wrinkles on their face, or enlarged droopy eyes that are caused by aging. Sometimes these wrinkles or enlarged eye lids can be attributed to high amounts of stress on the face, such as sleepiness or excessive blinking, which can also lead to more damage to the skin, resulting in more visible wrinkles.
A blepharoscope is a device that can be used to assess the condition of a patient during the surgery process. Blepharoscopes have three different functions. One function is to create an image of the patient’s eye, which can show you if there is any swelling or bleeding behind the cornea. Another function is to monitor the status of oxygenation, which tells you the amount of oxygen in the cornea. Finally, the third function is to record the status of blood flow in the patient’s eye, which helps the physician determine the type of surgical treatment that needs to be done on your eyes.
Before undergoing this surgery, you should speak to your eye doctor about it, as well as discuss your reasons for needing the surgery. If you have any medical conditions or medications, your doctor will usually ask you to stop taking those before the procedure so you don’t put unnecessary stress on your eyes after the procedure has been completed.
