Blepharoplasty is performed on patients on an outpatient basis and may take up to three hours. Below, we have described every stage of the surgery.
The first step in the surgery is anesthesia injection. Anesthesia is mostly local, but sometimes doctors order general anesthesia for the ease of the patient. Depending on his or her diagnosis, the surgeon then cuts in the appropriate area. In Eye cheek Bag Removal (lower Blepharoplasty), the incision is made either just below the lash line or inside the lower eyelid.
Then the necessary changes are applied to the lower eyelids. These changes can be:
1-Removal of extra fat tissue in the lower eyelids
2-Removal of extra skin on the lower eyelids
3-Removing extra muscles
4-By cutting inside the lower eyelid, only the extra fat in the lower eyelid is removed.
Eventually, the incisions are closed with surgical sutures.
