EYELID SURGERY OR BLEPHAROPLASTY

Loss of elasticity in the skin is commonly a part of aging process. This is usually seen in the eye muscles and skin where they slacken off easily with age resulting in the formation of droopy heavy eyelids. In fact eyes show aging more than any other part of the face. Double vision, fatigue and sensitivity are a few consequences of droopy eyelids. Loosening of the muscle and laxity of the septum allows fat to cushion in their sockets, forming eye bags and giving a baggy appearance. In some cases it also forms deep creases in the lower eyelids.

Sometimes the situation worsens giving a permanent tired look. Although, there are number of other causes like improper eyelid function, lack of sleep, tiredness and so on but, aging is the major factor contributing droopy and saggy eyelids. Eyelid surgery can make an amazing difference to your overall appearance, giving you a more fresher and youthful look.

WHAT TO DO?

Droopy upper eyelids can interfere with vision where eyelashes tend to obstruct vision. When neglected can have adverse effect on person’s life, so a proper medical consultation should be sought to discuss surgical treatment. Eyelid Surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, is performed to remove fat and surplus skin around the eye region in such situations.

WHO CAN CONSIDER THIS SURGERY?

This surgery is performed for various reasons. People who want to get rid of extra loose lax skin or fat bags beneath the eye, or suffer from visual obstruction can undergo this surgery. To reduce puffy and bagginess appearance for your eyes, eyelid surgery is useful in appropriate patients. The process can be generally carried out in anyone from the age of 35 onward.

LIMITATIONS

The surgery only treats the natural eyelid lines within the eye sockets. It is not the treatment for crow’s feet appearance which may require Botox injections in addition to blepharoplasty. The festoons i.e. skin folding that are extending on the cheek may not be improved fully with this surgery without facelift at the same time. Sometimes, laser resurfacing or chemical peel technique can be applied to treat recurrent or residual wrinkles also.

EYELID SURGERY OR BLEPHAROPLASTY PROCEDURE

A local anaesthetic is used to perform both upper and lower eyelid reduction surgery but general anaesthesia can be preferred depending on the procedure involved. Mr Javaid will make incisions in the natural folds of the upper eyelid, and for lower eyelid surgery, just below the lashes. A little extension can be made at corner or at the crow’s feet of the eyes to remove sagging muscle and excess fat under the skin.

Incision through the inside of the lower eyelid can be performed if you have excess fat deposits beneath you lower eyelids. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty can be used to reduce wrinkles and to tighten under eye skin. There is no side effect like skin colour change or appearance of external scar after the treatment is performed, just a mild redness in the treated area is seen and it would last for a few months only.

POTENTIAL RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

Bleeding, infection, scarring and pulling of the lower eyelids, asymmetry, scar related problems, temporary bruising and swelling, photosensitivity and tearing, temporary blurred vision, double vision, extremely rare risk of blindness, persistent dissatisfaction with the appearance.

PRECAUTIONS BEFORE SURGERY

Avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs for 2 weeks before surgery. Stop smoking 6 weeks before surgery.

SUMMARY

Operation duration: 1.5 hours. Anaesthesia: General/Local. Hospital Stay: Overnight. Time offwork: One week. Overall Result: Visible from 2-6 months.

Body Contouring

View this post on Instagram

Body Contouring ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES ARE INVOLVED IN BODY CONTOURING⁠⠀ LIPOSUCTION⁠⠀ Some areas of the body are resistant to dieting and exercising. Liposuction can be used to remove fat from such areas. Non-smokers compared to smokers, heal faster post-surgery. Good skin elasticity also promotes better and quick healing.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ARM LIFT⁠⠀ Saggy skin is quite prevalent in the upper arms. An arm lift also called brachioplasty or arm reduction is performed by making incisions behind the arm, from armpit to elbow. This procedure tightens the upper arms, giving them a smooth and firm shape.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ THIGH LIFT⁠⠀ Thighs are especially resilient to exercise and dieting. With the help of thigh lift, loose skin and excess fat around the thighs and groin are removed through careful incisions. This surgical technique may be followed by liposuction.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ TUMMY TUCK⁠⠀ The abdomen is the region most people are quite conscious about. A flat stomach improves the silhouette of the body. A tummy tuck also involves removing excess skin through incisions, resulting in a smooth and tight abdomen. Patients with excessive skin roles in the flanks, may benefit from Fleur-de-lis type abdominoplasty and patients having saggy buttocks may benefit from circumferential abdominoplasty to tighten the abdomen and uplift the buttocks simultaneously. Mr Javaid will guide you with the best option in your bindividual case after having examined you in detail.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Enquiries in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire: Please speak to Mrs Pauline Titley (private secretary) on 077 8069 8989⠀⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ #cosmeticsurgery ⁠⠀ #bedfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #hertfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #derbyshire ⠀⁠⠀ #nottinghamshire⁠⠀ #stevenage ⁠⠀ #hitchin⁠⠀ #luton ⁠⠀ #hatfield⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

Unwanted fat deposits in the body look unappealing and the common areas where fat becomes accumulated are hips, tummy, neck, arms, thighs, and inner areas of ankles and knees. This technique can also be useful to treat benign fatty lumps called lipoma and excessive fat deposits under the nipple in males giving an appearance of female-like breast known as gynaecomastia.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Enquiries in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire: Please speak to Mrs Pauline Titley (private secretary) on 077 8069 8989⠀⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ #cosmeticsurgery ⁠⠀ #bedfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #hertfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #derbyshire ⠀⁠⠀ #nottinghamshire⁠⠀ #stevenage ⁠⠀ #hitchin⁠⠀ #luton ⁠⠀ #hatfield⁠⠀
