Can I get double eyelid surgery if I have a skin condition? This is an extremely common question, but the answer isn’t so clear. There are many factors to consider before deciding whether or not you can undergo this cosmetic procedure for your eyes. In this blog post, we will explore some of these factors and give you our opinion on whether or not it is possible with your particular situation.
What is it?
This is a cosmetic surgery that eliminates the crease in the eyelid. This surgery, also called Asian blepharoplasty, makes it look as if you had double eyelids when you didn’t beforehand.
Many skin conditions can prevent someone from getting a Double lid surgical procedure. One of these common conditions is dermatochalasis. This condition causes the skin to droop, making it appear as if you have a double lid when in reality, your crease was never there. Another common skin issue that prevents getting this surgery done is ptosis or eyelid ptosis. Ptosis means that one of your upper lids has fallen and appears to be a crease when it is not.
An excess buildup of collagen causes many skin conditions. Collagen gives us our skin structure and firmness, so an excess of collagen can lead to skin conditions like puffy eyes.
Puffiness in the eye area is often caused by allergies or swelling due to too much salt intake (for example, eating pickles). For this reason, puffiness may worsen around the eyes if you undergo surgery while you have a skin condition like this.
However, even though puffy eyes may be worsened by surgery, if you take certain precautions and make sure to avoid triggers that exacerbate your puffiness before the procedure is done, it can still work for you.
The purpose of the surgery is to create a crease in the upper lid. This creates a more defined and attractive look, which can appeal to Asian eyes that tend not to have this natural creasing.
How long do I need to wait?
Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer to this question. You should get surgery if you have a skin condition, but how long you need to wait will depend on the severity of your skin condition and how it is affecting your eyes specifically.
Suppose you are experiencing puffiness or swelling around your eyes that can be easily seen when looking at you in person. In that case, you will need to wait until it is under control before getting surgery. This can mean waiting anywhere from a few weeks to a year or more in some cases.
However, suppose your skin condition causes puffiness that is not visible when looking at you normally and only becomes apparent when taking pictures of the eye area. In that case, you may have better luck getting the surgery done.
Will surgery work If I Have A Skin Condition?:
Surgery is performed to create a crease in the upper eyelids. The procedure gives an attractive look, but it may not work if you have a skin condition around your eyes. These conditions are caused by an excess of collagen and can worsen after the surgery. Therefore, it will be best to wait until your skin condition is under control before getting surgery. If you have puffiness that cannot be seen while looking at you normally, then this procedure would probably work for you. It all depends on how severe your case is and what factors affect it.
– Many people get surgery because they want to look more Asian. It is not uncommon for Asians living outside of Asia to feel like their eyes don’t fit their face. Since this procedure can make your eyes appear bigger, it’s often popular with those who are self-conscious about how small or narrow their eyes may seem compared to their face.
– However, it is important to recognize that this surgery cannot change the size of your eyes or give you a different eye shape than what you were born with. It simply creates an upper eyelid crease where one may not exist naturally. With these facts in mind, some people should avoid getting surgery because it could make their vision worse.
– For instance, if you have ptosis (a medical condition that causes drooping of the upper eyelid) or lagophthalmos (the failure to close your eyes all the way), getting this procedure will not change these underlying conditions. Since muscles control how much an eye can open, this surgery cannot fix these problems.
– Also, if you have severe dry eye or just milder cases of irritation and redness caused by your eyes drying out easily, it might be best to avoid getting surgery because it may exacerbate the problem. The skin around your eyes is very delicate (especially when compared to the skin on your face). If you have any eczema or another form of dermatitis, this surgery might not be advisable because it could irritate your condition.
– On top of that, having a medical history with herpes can also pose problems for some people who want surgery. That’s because if there’s a recurrence of an ocular herpes infection, it could be very dangerous for your eyes and even threaten the function you have in them.
– For this reason (and others), we typically recommend that people with skin conditions such as these get other forms of surgery that may not affect their visual capabilities if they want to enhance their appearance.
– If this doesn’t apply to your situation and you want the cosmetic benefits of the surgery, then, by all means, go for it. It can be a very rewarding procedure that gives you a more youthful and energetic appearance.
