Surgery called blepharoplasty is used to remove extra and saggy skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Skin that is too loose on the eyelids can make people look older and potentially impair vision. Dr. Manwani provides upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures at Cosmetic Surgery  Mumbai for patients looking to improve their appearance and regain complete peripheral vision.

Although it may make a minor difference, blepharoplasty is not intended to treat sagging eyebrows, under-eye discolouration, or crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes. As part of a full cosmetic treatment, blepharoplasty is frequently combined with other procedures such a facelift, forehead lift, injectable fillers, and facial resurfacing.


General anaesthesia or local anaesthesia combined with intravenous sedation are both used to complete blepharoplasty. Depending on the precise issue that needs to be addressed, each patient’s surgical technique is different. While excess skin on the lower eyelids is typically removed out of choice for cosmetics, excess skin on the upper eyelids can impair peripheral vision and may need to be removed owing to functional issues. In cases where the patient needs treatment for both the upper and lower eyelids, the upper eyelids are usually treated first.

Incisions are made inside the eyelid folds, on the inner eyelids or along the lash line after the patient has been given a general anaesthetic. The incisions were strategically placed to allow for easy access to the underlying tissues and to keep scars buried inside the skin’s natural folds. Then, the underlying muscle tissues are realigned, and any extra skin is removed. Fatty deposits that contribute to the appearance of under-eye bags will be eliminated during lower blepharoplasty.

The incisions will be sutured closed once any extra tissue has been eliminated and the required modifications have been made. Patients can go home the same day as their operation and the complete procedure lasts between one and two hours.


Patients should anticipate mild to severe edoema and bruising for roughly two weeks following blepharoplasty. Eye watering, light sensitivity, double vision, dry eyes, and impaired vision are additional typical adverse effects. To guarantee a secure and comfortable recovery, Dr. Manwani gives each patient thorough instructions on how to minimise the negative effects of eyelid surgery. Use of ice packs, eye drops, and ointments might lessen these adverse effects, which continue for about a week.

Patients need to allow at least three weeks before starting any vigorous activity, such as exercise, and should anticipate missing roughly one week of work. It will be advised to use sunglasses to protect the eyes from wind and too much sunlight while they are still sensitive. Additionally, patients should refrain from rubbing their eyes as they heal and sleep with their heads raised for the first 72 hours to lessen swelling. In the event that stitches were required, they will be taken out three to seven days after the procedure.

The effects will become less noticeable once they have subsided. As the swelling goes down and the incisions begin to disappear, the final results will continue to get better for a few months.




Choosing a surgeon with extensive proficiency in the field and multifaceted training is crucial to having a pleasant and rewarding surgical experience. As a pioneer in the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Manwani treats every blepharoplasty procedure with artistic rigour and considerate care, ensuring that patients receive the best possible cosmetic outcomes.


A thorough surgery that produces results that last a lifetime is blepharoplasty. Even though the skin will age and possibly droop once again, it will never be as awful as it was before the operation. The outcomes of a blepharoplasty treatment are expected to endure a lifetime for the patient.

You are probably an excellent candidate for blepharoplasty if you have excess upper or lower eyelid skin that has caused an ageing appearance or visual impairment. To get a thorough evaluation and learn more about your treatment choices, make an appointment with us.

Lower blepharoplasty can reduce under eye bags that might cause dark under eye circles, but it’s not meant to get rid of them entirely. This frequent skin darkening can be treated with chemical peels and laser procedures. During your initial consultation, let us know whether you’d also like to lessen your under-eye circles, and we’ll develop a thorough treatment strategy that takes all of your issues into account.

The underlying facial muscles that control expression are unaffected by blepharoplasty, and the procedure will not significantly alter the appearance of your face as a whole. However, by eliminating any extra skin that has obscured the eyes, it can produce a more young and awake appearance.

Under eye bags are frequently inherited and can appear as the skin matures or even at a young age. As the skin around the eyes sags and stretches with age, fatty deposits under the eyes can become more apparent, making the under eye bags more exposed and obvious.

No, blepharoplasty is just intended to remove extra skin and drooping tissue. During your initial consultation, we can go through our selection of injectable filler treatments with you if you’d want to control your crow’s feet as well.
