Eyelid Surgery Adelaide (or blepharoplasty) is a plastic surgery procedure used to correct several deformities of the eyelid and correct cosmetic problems that arise in the area surrounding the eyes. The procedure is also used for improving the brightness and shape of the eyes. Blepharoplasty, also known as blepharoplasty, is the second most popular plastic surgery procedure. It ranks behind only nose surgery. This is because blepharoplasty provides the patient with a plastic appearance that is more natural than those derived from the nose.
For many individuals who need eyelid surgery, the first step towards achieving this goal is consultation with an eye doctor. During the consultation, the doctor will determine if you qualify for the procedure. For example, if your vision is corrected via contact lenses or glasses, you may be eligible for the procedure without board certification. Furthermore, if you have a disfigured eyelid due to trauma or a disease such as cancer, you may qualify for the procedure without board certification.
Eyelid Surgery Adelaide can be done either under general or local anesthesia. General anesthesia is often prescribed for more complex procedures that involve multiple organs or are long term or ongoing treatments. Local anesthesia is used when the cosmetic procedure is quick and requires minimal downtime. Both types of anesthesia are often combined for improved surgical results.
After general anesthesia is applied, a disposable lace is placed in each nostril for patients to use to pull the skin of their eyelids taut and close over the surgical site. A thin plastic band is then tied around the upper lid to pull the lower lashes toward the surface. This pulls up the skin of the eyelid and allows the surgeon to make small incisions beneath the lashes to separate them from the eyelid itself. Next, the remaining lashes will be trimmed off to a short length and trimmed their thick base hair. A small number of eyelash hairs are then pulled along with the remaining lashes. Finally, eyelid stitched shut using an endoscope is completed to ensure no bleeding occurs during the Eyelid Surgery Adelaide.
Once the incisions are made, and the lashes have been trimmed off, the surgeon then moves to the second step of eyelid surgery. The surgeon will loosen the excess lashes from the eye and move them to the desired lash line. This part of the surgery is usually done with sedation and the patient under general or local anesthesia. It is common for the patient to have some bruising on the eyelid or surrounding face several days after the procedure.
A plastic surgeon or dermatologist can perform eyelid surgery. This type of cosmetic procedure can be performed as a single procedure or divided into several steps to fit the patient’s individual needs. Generally, eyelid surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Although smaller procedures can be performed under a local anesthetic, larger, more complicated surgeries may require general anesthesia to prevent complications.
