Eyelid Enhancement Surgery | Plastic Surgery Compensation Claims

Blepharoplasty is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and can involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As people age, their eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them get weaker. This can result in excess fat gathering above and below the eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under the eyes.

This can have the effect of making people look older. Also, severely sagging skin around the eyes can reduce peripheral vision. Therefore, the benefits of undergoing Blepharoplasty can be cosmetic, as well as to improve vision in certain cases.

Individuals therefore have to weigh up the benefits and risks before undergoing this type of surgery, besides, of course every type of surgery carries a certain amount of risk.

Benefits of Eyelid Enhancement Surgery

Blepharoplasty may be an option if you have:

  • Baggy or droopy upper eyelids;
  • Excess skin of the upper eyelids that interferes with your peripheral vision;
  • Excess skin on the lower eyelids;
  • Bags under your eyes.

Potential Risks of Eyelid Enhancement Surgery

Possible risks of eyelid surgery include:

  • Infection and bleeding;
  • Dry, irritated eyes;
  • Difficulty closing your eyes or other eyelid problems;
  • Noticeable scarring;
  • Injury to eye muscles;
  • Skin discoloration;
  • The need for a follow-up surgery;
  • Temporarily blurred vision or, rarely, loss of eyesight;
  • Risks associated with surgery in general, including reaction to anesthesia and blood clots.

If you consider that you have been given inadequate advice or received substandard treatment/cosmetic surgery, our specialist team here at Swain & Co Solicitors can help. Contact our expert eyelid surgery Solicitors to discuss your case today.

You can really on our Medical Negligence Solicitors for professional advice on your circumstances.
