Before Eyelid Lifting

 You need to ask your doctor if you will do the procedure under local or general anesthesia. If the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, you will remain awake during the operation, but the area around your eyes will be anesthetized by a drug given by a needle. Local anesthesia can be enhanced using analgesics given either orally or intravenously. You may need general anesthesia if the procedure is more complicated or if you are planning to perform another cosmetic procedures at the same time. Before the day of the operation, especially if you are going thorough it under general anesthesia, you may be asked to follow steps such as:

  • If your doctor advised you, stop using any medications related to blood transfusions, including painkillers, aspirin and ibuprofen. You will need to stop using these medications two weeks before the operation to reduce the risk of excessive bleeding during the procedure.
  • Eat a small meal the night before the operation like soup.
  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight on the night of the operation.
  • In the morning of the operation day, essential medicines such as blood pressure medications must be taken with a small sip of water.
  • Do not wear any makeup of any kind on the operation day.
  • Make sure there is someone to take you home and accompany you after the first hours of the operation.

There is no need to stay for a night in the hospital unless you are planning to do other cosmetic operations.

During Eyelid Lifting

This procedure can be performed on upper eyelids or lower eyelids or both of them at the same time. Incisions are made in the upper and lower eyelids during the operation so as not to leave any obvious scars after surgery. During the operation, incisions are made in the natural folds of the eyelid, in the upper eyelid wrinkles and under the eyelashes or just behind the lower eyelid. In this way, the cracks are not actually noticeable after healing.

During the procedure, the surgeon will make precise marks to determine where you need to remove excess skin and fat. Some muscles also can be removed. Tissues are removed using surgical tools such as surgical shears, wireless cutting devices and sometimes laser. The stitches or glues then are made to the tissue carefully, reshaping the areas around the eyebrows and eyelids. During surgery, your surgeon will determine how much skin, muscle or fat should be removed, based on a preoperative assessment of factors such as the structure of the underlying facial muscles, the facial structure and the symmetry or your eyebrows. Dry eye patients often need to remove less tissue to avoid exposing the eye to more air, which can aggravate the symptoms. The surgeon may also use a CO2 laser to enhance the process by restoring the skin and eliminating any remaining wrinkles in the eyelid and eyebrow area.In cases where the eyebrows are also dangling, a lifting procedure may also be necessary.

After Eyelid Lifting

After the procedure, a topical antibiotic ointment will be used on the operation area. On the first day, you should put cool compresses every hour you are awake, for 10-15 minutes at a time. Ice should reduce swelling. On the second day, pack cold compresses should be used every few hours for10 to 15 minutes at a time. After 48 hours, warm compresses should be placed to increase healing speed.

The eye doctor will advise you about which painkiller to use. Most people need only normal painkillers. Expect mild pain during recovery, but if the pain is severe or you are having vision problems, contact your doctor immediately.

During the healing period, the area of your eyes will be bruised and red, especially during the first few days. It may take a few weeks to recover completely, and during this period no makeup should be used on the eye.

You can wear contact lenses when eyelid swelling get reduced enough, you can carefully place them at any time after surgery.
