Sagging or drooping eyelids happen normally with growing age. On the other hand, many people are born with droopy eyelids or acquire ailments (like myasthenia gravis) that can cause eyelid drooping.
An eyelid lift is generally done when you are awake. You’ll be given medicine to ease anxiety. The surgeon will inject numbing medication round the eye so you don’t feel discomfort throughout the surgery.
The surgeon is likely to make tiny cuts in the natural creases or folds of the eyelids, after which they will remove any loose skin and additional fat tissue. Right after tightening up the eyelid muscles, the surgeon places stitches in the region.
Eyelid repair surgery hardly ever requires a hospital stay. The surgical treatment is completed in a surgeon’s office or as outpatient surgery in a medical center.
Blepharoplasty can also be used along with BOTOX® treatments to help lift the eyebrows or decrease the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet or dark circles around the eyes.
