Having a brow lift in Thailand can be an effective way to refresh the appearance of those drooping eyelids.
Eyelid surgery is an excellent option for people who wish to refresh and rejuvenate the area around the eyes. People who have loose or excess skin in the upper eyelids, as well those with puffiness, “bags,” hollowing, or wrinkles around the eyes, may be suitable candidates for an eyelid lift.
Good candidates for a blepharoplasty include adult men or women who are healthy, fit and emotionally stable, with features of the aging eyelid as described above. Some candidates for eyelid surgery may also have some degree of Brow Ptosis (forehead droop) and actually are also candidates for a Brow Lift together with surgical rejuvenation of the eyes.
Smokers, patients with high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease or diabetes, and individuals who are psychologically unprepared for surgery are not good candidates for blepharoplasty. Individuals with diseases of the eye such as dry eyes, glaucoma or a history of a detached retina may not be suitable candidates for surgery.
Remember to tell your surgeon about a history of vision disorders or LASIK surgery. Patients with an overactive thyroid (Graves disease) or “exophthalmos” (bulging of the eyes) are at higher risk of complications from blepharoplasty and should avoid cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Each blepharoplasty technique, used in the right setting, has outcomes that are consistently reliable and long-lasting. Surgical eyelid rejuvenation creates a refreshed and relaxed appearance to the eyes, a smoother contour to the lower eyelid skin, and a more rested and youthful look overall. The eyes will appear less sad, tired or angry.
At your blepharoplasty consultation, your entire eyelid and forehead area will be examined both at rest and with facial muscle animation. The particular blepharoplasty surgical technique recommended will depend on your skin quality and elasticity, the position of your eyebrows, amount of excess upper or lower eyelid skin, the presence of bags or festoons, and the condition of your forehead and eyebrow area.
An upper lid blepharoplasty, lower lid blepharoplasty, four-lid (also known as “quad”) blepharoplasty or nonsurgical rejuvenation of the eyelids may be recommended to you specifically, or in combination.
Most clients who seek eyelid surgery do so for one or more reasons. A short list of what leads people to have the procedure include:
- Excessive wrinkles on the lower eyelids
- A droopy look around the eyes, especially in the lower eyelids
- Upper eyelid folds, which include loose and saggy skin
- Bags under the eyes
- Puffiness around the eyes, primarily near the upper eyelids
If you suffer from one or more of these conditions, eyelid surgery might be the smart way to regain your natural, healthy appearance.
The method used for your blepharoplasty procedure will depend on your anatomy, the degree of skin excess and amount of bulging fat and/or muscle in the upper and lower lids. All incisions used for eyelid surgery are designed to be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region.
Following injection of local anesthesia containing epinephrine (which minimizes bruising), delicate eyelid skin is separated from the underlying tissues, and excess fat or muscle is repositioned or removed as necessary. Tiny blood vessels are meticulously cauterized to avoid bleeding during and after surgery. Excess skin is trimmed, the remaining eyelid skin is redraped without tension, and incisions are closed using very fine sutures that will be removed a few days to a week after surgery
When you awake from your blepharoplasty, your eyes may be blurry from protective ophthalmic ointment applied to the eyes during surgery. You will be comfortable; eyelid surgery is not normally painful. Pain medication is prescribed for you to take after surgery as needed. You will have cool packs over your eyes that you can continue at home for a few days. Blepharoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and takes 1-2 hours depending on the details of surgery.
Initial healing after a blepharoplasty may include some eyelid swelling, bruising, tearing, eye irritation, light sensitivity or dry eyes that is controlled with medication, cold compresses and lubricating ointment. Blepharoplasty incisions tend to heal very well with excellent quality scars due to the delicate nature of eyelid skin and robust blood supply of the face.
As mild swelling and any bruising subsides, visible improvements of the eyelid procedure will appear over a few weeks. The results of a blepharoplasty will reveal a smoother, more defined eyelid, and brighten the eye region for a more youthful and refreshed appearance. It takes several months up to a year for the final results to be evident and for incisions to fade maximally.
