Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that involves the removal of extra skin from the eyelids and tightening of the muscles to improve the appearance and functionality of the eyelids.
The elasticity of the eyelids skin ( the ability of the skin to snap back to it’s original shape after being stretched) reduces with age, trauma and sickness. This can lead to sagging, drooping, ectropion ( outward flipping of the eyelid) or entropion ( inward flipping of the eyelid).
This can affect the appearance or functionality of the eyelids and can lead to
- Dryness of the eyes which is harmful to the cornea
- Eye lashes entering the eye (especially in cases of entropion)
- Irritation of the eyes which can cause a foreign body sensation (the feeling that something is in the eye(s))
- Watering and redness of the eyes
