Eyelid Surgery And Our Top Destinations

Title: Eyelid surgery what you need to know.

The eyes are one of the most captivating parts of our body. However, with age, our eyelids tend to outstretch, and the muscles that hold them in place grow tired – As these muscles weaken, unwanted fat may start forming below and above the eyelids. As a result, your upper eyelids may become droopy, your eyebrows sag, and eye bags start forming under your eyes. Eyelid surgery then becomes an option.

Unfortunately, this sagging skin around your eyes doesn’t only make you look older; the excess skin can also have a substantial effect on your side (peripheral) vision, too, reducing the outer and upper fields of view.

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic eyelid procedure that permanently removes unwanted fat deposits around the eyes, which come naturally with age.

Blepharoplasty gives your eyes a more youthful appearance and helps minimize the vision complications that come with droopy eyes.

Although the idea of an eyelid surgery may seem frightening, the procedure usually isn’t too complicated, especially if you find a first-class oculoplastic surgeon.

Before you sulk at the expensive prices of eyelid procedures, there’s good news! You don’t have to break your bank to get rid of the sagging fat around your eyes.

In the past, you may have put up with the expensive prices of your hometown cosmetic surgeon; However, today, with the impressive technological advancements emerging in various parts of the world, you can receive high-end cosmetic surgeries while also touring and experiencing exciting places all over the world.

However, if you are under lockdown with the COVID-19 restrictions then maybe clinics like Dr. Shah-Desai ‘s Perfect Eyes clinic in London UK is reassuringly well located.  London prices, true, but looking safer than many exotic destinations right now. Another London specialist is Dr Julian de Silva who prides himself on his own signature techniques.

Medical tourism can save you a lot of money, especially if you are to undergo a Blepharoplasty. However, some countries are better than others when it comes to medical tourism.

We’ve done the donkey work for you and compiled a list of top economic eyelid surgery clinic destinations for your Blepharoplasty.

  1. Destination: South Korea

South Korea has emerged as one of the top medical hubs in the world. Its skyrocketing popularity is due to the country’s impressive world-class health treatment centers, JCI accredited cosmetic surgery clinics and certified plastic surgeons. Due to the high number of medical tourists that visit South Korea, many cosmetic surgeons speak excellent English.

Places in South Korea: Seoul is the hub of many cosmetic centers that specialize in liposuction-Blepharoplasty, and Rhinoplasty. One significant advantage of carrying out your eyelid surgery in Seoul is the excellent value they offer at a surprisingly affordable price.

Top tip: After your surgery, you can explore the rich and vibrant history of Seoul, discover the exquisite dishes, and enjoy magnificent locations.

                Thailand is quickly making inroads as one of the most visited medical tourism destinations in the world. Due to the astonishing number of ex-pats that come to Thailand as medical tourists, Thailand is rivaling South Korea as Asia’s prime destination for cosmetic surgeries and treatments.

                Places in Thailand: When it comes to cosmetic procedures like eyelid surgery, Thailand can be competitive. However, Bangkok is our preferred city if you choose to undergo your Blepharoplasty.

                Bangkok is an exceptional city that blends traditional culture and history with its modern first-grade medical infrastructures. After your procedure, you can visit their temples, festivals, and warm beaches.

                Bonus: Asides the remarkable low cost of living, Thailand is incredibly welcoming to tourists.

                                            Although Singapore is a more expensive option on our list, their sophisticated medical prowess has earned them a spot as a global medical tourist center. Although it faces stiff competition from Thailand, Singapore still reigns supreme as Asia’s most visited medical center. Their effective health care systems have made them a perfect destination for both Westerners and Asians. Special surgeries available here include spine surgery, liposuction, and various cosmetic surgeries.

                                            Places in Singapore

                                            Hougang and Singapore are all incredible cities to carry out your eyelid surgery. If you’re not a fan of big cities and you prefer a more serene location, I recommend you check out Tampines.

                                                                  man eyelid surgery

                                                                  Eyelid surgeries are not as complicated as they sound, but before you go on the table, you need to meet specific criteria. Firstly, you need to be in an optimum health condition; underlying sickness can affect your surgery. Ideal candidates for Blepharoplasty are 40 years or older.

                                                                  Top tip: If your baggy eyelids are hereditary, I recommend you undergo the surgery sooner.

                                                                  How long will the effects of my eye surgery last?

                                                                  You can perform your eye surgery on your upper eyelid, lower eyelid, and in some cases, both of them. Lower eyelid surgery can produce incredible results that can last a lifetime. However, you may have to redo the upper eyelid surgery every five to seven years.

                                                                  Top tip: Although eyelid surgery can produce outstanding effects, after your eyelid surgery, your eyes will still age. If your eyes start drooping again, rather than going through another Blepharoplasty, I recommend you opt-in for a forehead facelift.

                                                                  Risks

                                                                  Like any surgery, eyelid surgeries have their risks. However, with an experienced oculoplastic surgeon, the risks are very minimal. Risks of Blepharoplasty include;

                                                                  • Scarring
                                                                  • Excess Bleeding
                                                                  • Infection
                                                                  • Dry, irritated eyes
                                                                  • Skin discoloration

                                                                   

                                                                  Top tip: After your surgery, placing ice packs on your face for 10 minutes every day will help speed up your recovery.

                                                                  Wrap Up!

                                                                  Have you ever stared at the eyes of a child? It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the human eyes are one of the first features we notice, and having sagging eyes can be unsightly (pun intended).

                                                                  With the top tips and magnificent destinations above, you can explore the world as a medical tourist and improve your appearance and boost your self-confidence too.
