Eyelid Surgery Pro And Contra

Aug 17, 2007
Such surgery eliminates a particular aspect of the patient's eye construction, an element that gives each Asian a creaseless eyelid.

Due to the nature of the Asian eye, skin and fat interfere with the extension coming from the eye muscle. Because of that interference, the eyelid does not form a crease when the eye is opened. Plastic surgery can put a crease in the eyelid of an Asian patient. Some patients view that fact as an important benefit of such surgery.

Yet every Asian should realize that no plastic surgeon is perfect. Changes resulting from cosmetic surgery do not always fill the expectations of the patient requested those changes. If a surgeon creates a crease that's too high or too arched, then that crease looks noticeably out-of-place on the face of the patient. Moreover, swollen Asian skin does not return to normal quickly.

Asian patients do not lack for company in the quest for plastic surgery to correct an eyelid problem. Patients with drooping eyelids or those with bags under their eyes can eliminate those problems by agreeing to cosmetic surgery. Surgery to the eyelid can also correct for a drooping brow.

Yet any correction obtained through surgery exposes the patient to certain risks. The surgery could produce a cut that would become infected. It could introduce a point on the skin that failed to heal as expected. Such a point might demonstrate continued bleeding. A surgical cut that exhibits continued bleeding usually demands that the doctor order a cauterization.

Few patients relish the thought of a cauterization. Few too want to face the prospect of more surgery, especially if such surgery does little more than give a surgeon the chance for a "do-over". Sometimes a patient who agrees to one operation on the eyelids later finds that he or she feels forced to accept a second surgery.

If the eyelid surgery failed to remove a sufficient amount of fat and skin, then the results could be far less than satisfactory. If the surgeon happened to remove a bit too much fat or skin, the results could be equally distasteful. Poor placement of an incision could introduce a need for a suture.

Sometimes a surgeon uses poor judgment concerning where he or she should put the surgical knife. When that occurs, the patient can have asymmetric eyes. A patient who sees such asymmetric eyes in the mirror every day has been deprived of the expected "plus" from the cosmetic surgery.

Such a patient can, of course, request corrective surgery. Still, there are undeniable drawbacks to such corrective surgery. In addition to forcing the patient to invest more money in a search for a suitable appearance, more surgery also puts further demands on the patient's time. Sometimes such corrective surgery can produce skin damage that takes longer than expected to heal properly.
