Manchester Cosmetic Surgery offers blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) performed by top plastic surgeon Dr. Abel Mounir, a cosmetic plastic surgeon with 20 years of experience. He performs a range of aesthetic facial rejuvenation procedures to restore the youthful look of the patient. He aims to always produce a natural-looking cosmetic outcome. Effectively if the aging signs start to show and droopy eyelids are detracting from your appearance, you can turn to Dr. Mounir to book your consultation and discuss your cosmetic surgical procedure.
During the aging process, usually, the upper and lower eyelids may become droopy and baggy. These aging signs are often associated with the descent of the eyebrows (ptosis). The skin of the upper and lower eyelids become loose, the muscles lose firmness, and fat tissue bulges and becomes more noticeable. At our practice in Manchester Blepharoplasty is performed to correct these signs and restore a youthful appearance. Generally, patients with droopy upper and puffy lower eyelids do complain about the tired look. They look to upper and lower Blepharoplasty to achieve a more rested and youthful look.
Effectively, when the outer side corner of the eye drops, it causes a colloquially called “hound dog” look. These symptoms are usually seen in the mid to late forties. The midface and eyebrows start to drop, giving a crowded look to the eyes. The Upper Blepharoplasty is designed to restore the youthful look of the eyes.
At the beginning of this type of blepharoplasty Manchester plastic surgeon Dr. Abel Mounir makes an incision within the skin fold of the upper lid, so the scar is hidden within the crease. Usually, excess skin and fat are removed, and the skin is closed without tension. During a lower blepharoplasty, a discreet incision is made right under the eyelashes of the lower lid. This allows the bulging fat to be removed and the septum to be restored to its original position, thus producing a more youthful look. Dr. Mounir almost always removes some excess skin before the wound closure is achieved.
Blepharoplasty is usually performed through external incisions placed discreetly along the natural lines of the eyelids, such as the creases of the upper lids and below the lashes of the lower lids. In addition, incisions may be made from the inside surface of the lower eyelid (transconjunctival blepharoplasty); this allows removal of lower eyelid fat without an externally-visible scar but does not allow excess skin to be removed.
Dr. Mounir always performs upper lid blepharoplasty under local anesthesia. However, when performing a lower lid blepharoplasty, you will need deep sedation. This means that the consultant anesthetist will place an IV perfusion to give you medication to help you sleep during the surgery.
An inability to close the upper eyelid may occur if too much skin has been removed. Blindness has been also reported. During lower eyelid surgery, complications such as ectropion and conjunctivitis have been described.
The discharge time will depend on the anesthesia used during your blepharoplasty, but usually, it’s between one to three hours.
No, not really! But you should expect to experience some discomfort once the local anesthesia wears off.
You will need to wear your dressing for five to seven days.
