Types of Eyelid Surgery and Effective Cost Dubai & Abu Dhabi

If aging has resulted in the formation of eye bags then you can consider Eyelid surgery. The treatment is safe and has no side effects associated with it.

Understanding Eyelid Surgery:

A cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of eye bags. It involves the removal of skin and fat from the eyelids. Incisions are made to perform it. The treatment is perfect for you if you want to add or remove fat.

The procedure can be performed alone or can be done in combination with laser resurfacing or chemical peeling. Before getting it, make sure you are not suffering from any serious eye condition. The treatment produces dramatic results and improves the overall facial appearance.

What to do Before getting Eyelid surgery?

Before undergoing any type of eyelid surgery you have to make sure that your expectations regarding the results are real. Set your goals and quit smoking. Tell your doctor if you have any allergies or illness. Discontinue taking aspirin, ibuprofen, and blood-thinning medications three weeks before the treatment.

Types of Eyelid Surgery:

There are two main types of Eyelid surgery:

1. Functional Blepharoplasty

If excess skin present under your eyes is interfering with your vision then you can undergo Functional Blepharoplasty in Dubai. How much vision is affected will be checked by the Humphrey Visual Field (HVF) Analyzer.

2. Cosmetic Blepharoplasty

The surgery can be performed on both upper and lower eyelids. Either skin or fat is removed or readjusted depending upon the type of eyelid surgery.

What Happens During Eyelid Surgery?

The doctor will use local or general anesthesia to minimize the pain associated with the operation. The procedure is short and takes almost 40 – 45 minutes to complete. If upper Blepharoplasty is being done then incision lines are made along the natural lines of eyelids. After creating incisions extra fat and skin are removed from the area around the eyes.

Eyelid Surgery Recovery:

The recovery period is short and easy. You might experience some swelling around the eyes for some days but they will fade within 3-4 days. Apply cold compressors and ice packs to minimize them.

Cost of treatment:

Cost is the first thing that people want to discuss with their surgeon when deciding to go for any treatment. It is not possible to tell you the exact price because it varies from individual to individual. There are variable factors by which the overall cost is affected. Common cost-factors of Eyelid surgery include:

  • Location of the clinic
  • Qualification and experience of the surgeon
  • Results you want to get from the treatment
  • The technique used by the surgeon
  • Type of anesthesia used

Alternative to Surgery:

You need to talk to the surgeon to decide which treatment is right for you. Common non-surgical alternatives to eyelid surgery are,

  1. HIFU treatment
  2. Botulinum toxin

1.     HIFU treatment:

A non-invasive cosmetic treatment that delivers super eyelift results. It uses focused ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production around the eyes. The treatment involves no cutting or stitching. The treatment can be done on the neck or chin to lift the loose and sagging skin. It also improves the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles.

2.     Botulinum toxin (Botox):

The treatment is FDA-approved. It works by injecting Botulinum toxin into the area around the eyes. The injections temporarily block the signal from the nerve to a muscle which is causing wrinkles. Fuller results of the treatment usually take 5 to 8 days to appear.
