Plastic surgeon will inject a numbing medication into the eyelids and administer intravenous medication to help you calm down. If the upper and lower eyelid is being treated, the surgeon will generally work on the upper one first. Cuts will be made along the fold of the eyelid and excess skin, muscle or possibly fat is removed and the closure is made. While treating the lower lid, the surgeon makes a cut just below the lashes in your eye’s natural crease or inside the lower lid. Excess fat, muscle, and sagging skin are removed and the cut is closed. In case your upper eyelid droops close to your pupil, then our expert surgeon will perform blepharoplasty with a procedure called ptosis that provides additional support to the eyebrow muscle.
