Eyelid surgery(blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids.

Candidates for surgery

The best candidates for an eye lift are people who are in good health and who have realistic expectations. If baggy eyelids or droopy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have the surgery done sooner.

Surgical procedure

An eyelift usually takes about two hours if both upper and lower eyelids are done together. Your doctor will most likely use local anesthesia (a painkiller injected around the eye) with oral sedation.
The surgeon will usually cut along the natural lines of your eyelids. Through these cuts, your surgeon will separate the skin from the underlying tissue and remove the excess fat and skin (and muscle if indicated). Next, the surgeon will close those cuts with very small stitches. The stitches in the upper lids will stay for three to six days. The lower lids may or may not require stitches, depending on the technique used
Surgery on the lower eyelids may be done using one of several techniques. In one method, your surgeon makes a cut inside your lower eyelid to remove fat. That cut won't be visible. Your surgeon can then soften fine lines in the skin using a C02 or erbium laser.
 

Recovery from Eyelid Surgery

After eyelid surgery, you will have stitches in both lids that will remain for a week. It is common to have swelling and occasionally bruising, but your eyelids should look normal within a week or two.

Does Insurance Cover Eyelid Surgery?

Health insurance companies typically don't cover cosmetic procedures. If you are getting eyelid surgery for a medical reason (for instance, because your eyelids are drooping so much that it affects your vision), and if a vision test confirms that, your insurance company may cover it.

Why India?


Medical tourism is a growing sector in India which is projected to grow to $7-8 billion by 2020.Advantages of medical treatment in India include reduced costs, the availability of latest medical technologies and a growing compliance on international quality standards, doctors trained in western countries including US and UK as well as English speaking personnel due to which foreigners are less likely to face language barrier in India.

With this in focus, Government of India have implemented visa-on-arrival scheme or e-Visa for tourists from select countries which allows foreign nationals to stay in India for 30 days for medical reasons.
