4 Major Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery is gaining popularity and is one of the most performed facial procedures as it helps improve eyesight as well as gives a natural youthful look. Eye surgery, popularly known as blepharoplasty, is performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both eyelids. 

The procedure lasts between 1 hour to 3 hours and is done under local or general anesthesia. The surgeon advises on the best anesthesia depending on the type of surgery. 

We take a closer look at what it is and the benefits after a discussion with Skin Works Medical Spa.

Why consider blepharoplasty? 

Eyelid surgery is done for functional and cosmetic reasons which include;

1. Improved eyesight.

As one grows old, the skin on the upper eyelid may sag over the eyelids and block vision. The lower eyelid may also droop and the white part of the iris is left open and unprotected. Excess skin on the lower eyelids also causes wrinkles. Such instances require surgery for correction where the upper eyelid is lifted to expand the line of sight. 

2. Removes eye bags. 

Lower lid blepharoplasty is done for cosmetic purposes to give a youthful appearance and involves the removal of fats under the eye and tightening the lower eyelid skin. This surgery is done to both men and women who do not wish to have puffy eyes and wrinkled skin. 

3. Gives a refreshed facial appearance. 

If your upper eyelid was drooping and the lower eyelid was puffy, blepharoplasty gives you a radiant look around your eyes. This is because the saggy skin is gone, you do not always look tired or sleepy but look rested and youthful. Your self-confidence and self-esteem will greatly shoot due to the improved look. 

4. Minimal risks and fast recovery. 

Eye surgery is a simple procedure and the side effects are rarely complicated as one recovers mostly within two weeks. Eye surgeries are the most successful surgeries worldwide and visiting a certified plastic surgeon is key to achieving this. 

It is important to note that after the eyelid surgery, for the youthful appearance to last longer, you need to maintain it by using eye creams that contain Sun Protection Factor and wearing sunglasses. Eyelid surgery can also be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers, neurotoxins, and laser treatment to soften wrinkles and reduce dark circles around the eyes.

New dry eye discovery! The need to protect eye lids by Sharon Kleyne

Keeping Eyelids Moist Can Help Prevent Dry Eye Complaints Says Researcher and Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, Sharon Kleyne

Several recent news articles have reported a new therapy for evaporative dry eye syndrome involving the tiny meibomian glands located n the eyelids. To water and health researcher and radio commentator Sharon Kleyne, the reported success of this new therapy underscores her long-held contention that dry eyelids are too frequently overlooked as a component of dry eye disease. 

Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a water and health research and product development center. Natures Tears® EyeMist® is the company’s global signature product for dry eye and dry facial skin. As part of an ongoing commitment to educating the public about water and health, Kleyne hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.

According to Kleyne, dry eye complaints are caused by a loss of water in the all-important “aqueous layer” of the basal tear film overlying the eye. The tear film is 98% water. Tear film water may be lost either to excessive evaporation or insufficient production by the tear glands. Excessive tear film evaporation, in turn, may result from dry air, polluted air and/or dysfunction of the oil-producing meibomian glands located in the eyelids. Meibomian glands produce lipids, or oils, which cover the “aqueous layer” and help slow evaporation.

The new therapy reportedly unblocks clogged meibomian gland ducts through a gentle heat treatment. The therapy has reportedly proved successful when meibomian gland dysfunction is a contributing factor in the dry eye condition.

Sharon Kleyne’s own research has discovered that dry eye is more environmentally based than most researchers realize. Dry air and air pollution significantly increase the rate of water evaporation from the tear film (certain common pollutants, such as soot and sulfur dioxide, have the ability to attract water). According to Kleyne, when water evaporates out of the tear film as a result of environmental conditions, it simultaneously evaporates out of the eyelid skin, causing the eyelids to become dry, inflamed and flaky. Inflammation of the eyelids is called ”blepharitis.”

Dry and inflamed eyelids almost certainly affect the meibomian glands within the eyelids, says Kleyne. She has long been concerned that most standard dry eye treatments do not rehydrate dry eyelids and that untreated dry eyelids can create a vicious circle in which the complaints continue to recur.

The best way to soothe and hydrate dry eyelids, according to Kleyne, is the application of a pure water mist followed by a gentle moisture sealing lotion.

Pure Water Soothes Dry Eye, Enhances Medications Announces Water and Health Researcher Sharon Kleyne in New Report.

An application of pure water still offers the best relief of dry eye complaints, says water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne. The statement was in response to media reports of new drugs for dry eye syndrome. While Kleyne supports these new medications, she continues to advocate pure water, applied to the eyes as a fine mist for dry eye prevention and symptomatic relief. 

Sharon Kleyne is a water and health researcher and founder of product development center, Bio Logic Aqua Research. Natures Tears® EyeMist® is the company’s global signature product for dry eye and dry facial skin. As part of an ongoing commitment to educating the public about water and health, Kleyne hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.

The new medications Kleyne notes, stimulate tear and lipid production to increase the amount of water in the tear film’s “aqueous” (water) and “lipid” (oil) layers. The tear film is 98% water, Kleyne explains, and the purpose of the microscopically thin lipid layer is to prevent the water from evaporating. Excessive tear film evaporation occurs when the air becomes too dry or polluted or the lipid producing meibomian glands in the eyelids malfunction.

Kleyne has discovered in her own research that when water evaporates, the salt, proteins and antibodies contained in the water do not evaporate. The over-concentration of salt causes symptoms such as itching and burning eyes. Discomfort is also caused by the reflexive production of inflammatory hormones when the tear film loses some of its water content.

For rapid absorption and instant, all-natural relief of dry eye symptoms, Kleyne advocates supplementing natural tear film moisture with an application of pure water. According to Kleyne, a pure, fresh water mist with no added ingredients may be safely applied as often as necessary. Kleyne’s research has found that when a fresh water mist is applied to the eyes immediately prior to the application of a formulated medication, the benefits of the medications are enhanced.
