Everything you need to know about upper eyelid correction surgery: which type to choose and whether it is possible to finally get rid of drooping eyelids and swelling
Let’s consider blepharoplasty, an effective solution to problems with the upper and lower eyelids. The procedure has several options, each of which solves specific problems. For simpler problems, a consultation with a cosmetologist is appropriate, while for longer-term results, you should consult a plastic surgeon. Dr. Amjad Al-Yousef describes the process and types of blepharoplasty in detail. The operation can be aimed at the upper or lower eyelids, or be circular, covering both areas. The main goal is to remove excess skin and fatty tissue, as well as smooth out wrinkles. The effect of blepharoplasty gives expressiveness to the look, gives youth and freshness to the face.

The first type, lower eyelid blepharoplasty, is represented by two approaches: transconjunctival and classical. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty involves a small incision inside the eyelid, making the surgery invisible. Classic blepharoplasty involves making a skin incision under the eyelashes and is often used for significant excess skin and fatty hernias.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty involves removing excess tissue in the crease of the upper eyelid followed by suturing. The final results can be seen within a few days after the operation.
Preparation for blepharoplasty includes a preliminary consultation with the surgeon, as well as examinations to determine possible contraindications, which may include age restrictions, cancer, poor blood tests and other medical problems.
It should be noted that contraindications may vary depending on the individual case, so it is important to consult a qualified specialist before undergoing surgery.
