Blepharoplasty (Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery)

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery is a plastic surgery that is done to correct defects or deformities of the eyelids and to modify the eye region of the face aesthetically. Eyelid surgery in Dubai is one of the most conventional plastic surgeries performed in the UAE. This surgery removes the extra/excess skin from the upper eyelid.

Who Needs Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery in Dubai is mostly opted by people with drooping eyelids to give them a rejuvenated and youthful look. It is a perpetual solution to correct eyelid issues as well as it improves the vision of elderly persons.

Diagnosis and Causes

It is a fact that people look into the other person’s eyes while conversing and not to the nose or mouth. A person looks more exhausted and old if their eyes are saggy. Eyelid surgery leaves an astonishing effect on the face as it eliminates the redundant skin from the upper eyelid.

Heavy eyelids occur mostly due to age, whereas infection and nerve rupture can also be a reason of cause. When proteins (collagen and elastin) diminish from the body, the skin loses its firmness and becomes baggier. Eyelid surgery in Dubai helps reduce the bagginess in the lower lid and excess fat from the upper eyelid.

Procedure of Blepharoplasty

The excess skin fat is removed with Blepharoplasty. In case, there is a prominent bagginess under the eye, it is fixed with a tiny incision.
Moreover, eyelid magnets are used to correct paralytic ptosis caused by a nerve rupture. The surgeon proceeds to the surgery after examining your medical history and explaining the risks involved with potential complications.

Preparing Before Surgery

Preparation of eyelid surgery in Dubai requires the arrangement of ice packs, clean towels, and gauzed pads at home. The leading plastic surgeons of Dr. Imran Tahir Aestheticare Center recommends the patients to stop the intake of aspirin and other inflammatory drugs to reduce bleeding risk.

Expectation/ Results of Blepharoplasty

Eyelid Surgery in Dubai helps you improve the overall appearance of the person and boosts self-confidence. But, the swelling may last up to two weeks post-surgery. Do not wear contact lenses for around two weeks.


The healing process of this surgery varies according to the patient’s immunity system. There may be sutures for a week but  swelling is the common symptom after Eyelid Surgery, but normalcy returns in a week or two.

Risk Factors

The complications that arise in Blepharoplasty are bleeding, infection, dry eye, pigmentation of eyelids, loss of vision, and unable to fully close eyes. If any of these complications arise, consult the best plastic surgeons of Dr. Imran Tahir Aestheticare Center in Dubai as soon as possible.
