For those of you who love Korean dramas or Korean pop music, you may be familiar with the term plastic eyelid surgery. Plastic surgery on the upper eyelid or eye fold is common among South Koreans, especially for celebrities. Because people in South Korea are very obsessed with having large eye shapes accompanied by double petals. So how is plastic surgery on the eye done? Are there special treatments that postoperative patients must undergo? Then what is the negative impact after doing plastic surgery on the eyelids? Consider the following full discussion.
Eyelid repair surgery or also called blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure on the eyelids that is carried out both at the top and bottom. The aesthetic surgery performed on the upper eyelid aims to remove fat deposits, wrinkles and excess skin on the upper eyelid that is usually owned by people who are experiencing the aging process. Circumstances like this certainly make your face look tired and sad. Excess skin on the eyelids causes the natural folds of the upper eyelids (eyelids) not to be seen clearly. This is what often happens to Korean celebrities. They are willing to operate on the eyelids to form new folds in the eyes so that their eyes look more vibrant and radiant.
Eyelid surgery is not only focused on the eye, but also covers other parts around it. If the condition of the upper eyelid is also accompanied by sagging eyebrows, then the forehead tightening is also recommended. Before performing surgery on the eye, the doctor also ensures that the patient does not suffer ‘dry eye’ or other eye disorders. Before starting the surgery, the main thing to do is anesthesia.
Local anesthesia is usually done in patients who want to perform eyelid surgery. Not only that, the activities of examining the heart, blood pressure, pulse, etc. are also not to be missed. Then how is the process of eyelid surgery done? Your doctor will choose the best technique for everyone. Because each individual has different ways and conditions. For upper eyelid surgery, the incision is extended to the outer corner into a line of laughter or other curves. Through this incision, the excess skin is removed to form new petals.
Doing eyelid surgery is not without risk, some of these things could have been the impact after performing eyelid surgery, including the presence of a collection of frozen blood that occurred under the skin layer. This should not be allowed, action must be taken immediately by issuing it. Then, there is a feeling of ‘dry’ in the eye or irritation that takes longer to heal. In addition, after performing surgery, the eyelids will experience ‘numbness’ for a while or even experience a malfunction.
However, some of these things can be minimized by always following the doctor’s advice and instructions both before and after surgery. Then is there a special treatment done by the patient after performing eyelid surgery? The day after surgery, the patient must rest with his head elevated. The doctor will give a message so that the patient performs a cold compress on the eyelid. In addition, patients are also not allowed to take certain drugs such as aspirin or certain inflammatory drugs
You also do not need to worry if there is swelling and bruising for 48 hours after surgery, because it usually happens to someone who has just had eyelid surgery. In addition, your vision will also be slightly blurred, sensitive to light and may experience excessive wet or dry. But you don’t need to worry, because this only happens temporarily. You only have to routinely give eye drops to help treat “burning sensation” or itching in the eyes. You may also be advised to always wear dark glasses for the first two weeks to protect and rest your eyes.
