Who Can Have Eyelid Surgery?

If you’re dealing with eyelid problems that are affecting your appearance, vision, and quality of life, you’ve probably wondered if you are a candidate for eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a very common procedure that can remove excess fat and skin, smooth out wrinkles and crow’s feet, and give you back your full field of vision.

Blepharoplasty is a Simple Procedure

At the J. Justin Older Eyelid Institute in Tampa, we do hundreds of blepharoplasty procedures each year. They are usually outpatient procedures done under local anesthesia. We also provide sedation if desired. Because blepharoplasty is so quick and easy, it’s typically a good choice for almost anyone. As long as you’re healthy and get the okay from your primary care physician for surgery, you are probably a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

Blepharoplasty Contraindications

Despite the fact that blepharoplasty is so common and suitable for almost anyone, there are a few people who shouldn’t have it. Patients with certain conditions should speak with their surgeon before going under the knife, including:

  • Certain psychological conditions, such as Body Dysmorphic disorder
  • Excessive laxity is the lower eyelid
  • Excessive drooping of the eyebrow
  • Bulging eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Issues with tissue healing
  • Active inflammatory cicatrizing skin conditions
  • Multi-revision surgeries

If you have any of the conditions above or a similar condition, consult with your physician and surgeon about what is the most appropriate course of action for your eyelid issues.
