    About Blepharoplasty

    Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is a procedure performed to correct defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids along with improvement of the eye region. It involves the removal of skin, muscles, and fat tissues that causes the eyelids to sag.

    People undergo this surgery for both cosmetic concerns and genuine medical concerns. Some are bothered by the way their eyes and face look due to droopy eyelids. Others choose surgery when the sagging skin interrupts the peripheral vision, especially in the upper and outer parts of the visual field.

    If your eyelids make your eye look baggy or affect your vision, you can consider blepharoplasty to resolve the problem effectively. You can contact Pristyn Care and learn all about the treatment from our expert plastic surgeons.


    Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery
    • Someone who is 30 years old or older.
    • Someone whose eyebrows have started to sag.
    • A person with overall good health.
    • A person with no other eye conditions.
    • Someone whose vision is affected due to the hanging skin.
    Side Effects After Surgery
    • Blurred vision
    • Watery eyes
    • Light sensitivity
    • Puffy and numb eyelids
    • Swelling and bruising
    • Pain or discomfort



    To confirm you have blepharoptosis, the doctor will perform a physical examination and ask about your medical history. Once you mention the frequency of drooping and how long it has been happening, the doctor may recommend the following tests to find the cause.

    Slit Lamp Exam– A high-intensity light is used to check the internal structure of the eye.
    Tensilon Test– This test involves using Tensilon (edrophonium drug) to diagnose if you have myasthenia gravis. This condition can be the potential cause of blepharoptosis.

    After finding the cause of eyelid sagging, the doctor will further perform a complete eye exam, visual field testing, and take photographs of the eyelid from different angles to plan the surgery and document the reason for the insurance claim.


    The steps involved in the surgery are explained below-

    • Anesthesia is administered to the patient to numb the eye. In some cases, IV sedation may be used.
    • The upper eyelids are addressed first. The surgeon makes a small incision to remove the excess skin, muscles, and fat from the eyelids.
    • Some tissues may be moved to other areas before closing the incision.
    • If the surgery is performed on the lower lid, mostly fat tissues are removed as they are the only ones contributing to the under-eye bags.
    • A small amount of skin tissue is also removed from the internal side of the eyelid or the external side underneath the lower eyelash.
    • In some cases, the lower eyelid is also secured to the bony skeleton.
    • After achieving the desired results, the incisions are closed, and the upper and lower eyelid skin is tightened properly. Either sutures or skin glue is used to close the incisions.

    The entire procedure can take around 1 to 2 hours. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and the patient is discharged on the same day.

    Frequently Asked Question

    Who should I consult to undergo blepharoplasty?

    If you wish to undergo blepharoplasty, you can consult a plastic surgeon, an ophthalmologist, or an oculoplastic surgeon. All of them specialize in performing the surgery safely and effectively.

    How much does eyelid surgery cost in Chennai?

    On average, eyelid surgery cost in Chennai ranges from Rs. 60,000 to Rs. 80,000. The exact cost depends on multiple factors, such as the severity of eyelid ptosis, correction of lower and upper lid, doctor’s fee, hospital’s expense, diagnostics, etc. Due to these factors, the treatment cost will be different for each patient.

    Does health insurance cover blepharoplasty treatment cost?

    Yes, health insurance covers the cost of blepharoplasty when it is performed for medical reasons, such as vision improvement. However, if you wish to get the procedure done for cosmetic reasons, the insurance company won’t cover the cost. To learn more about the terms and conditions regarding the coverage and claim, you should contact your insurance providers.

    How long does blepharoplasty last?

    The results of a blepharoplasty can last for up to 5 to 7 years or an entire lifetime, depending on the patient. The results of lower lid surgery rarely need to be modified again. But in some cases, patients may have to lift the upper eyelid again.

    Is blepharoplasty painful?

    No, the eyelid surgery itself is not painful as it is performed under general anesthesia. You might feel a slight discomfort while blinking your eyes. But these side effects will go away in some days.
