Are stitches used in blepharoplasty? Does the surgeon actually put stitches in the eyelids during blepharoplasty, or are the incisions closed some other way? .
Yes . Some type of suture is usually used during blepharoplasty surgery. Some surgeons prefer the use of absorbable sutures; some prefer the use of non-absorbable sutures.
Depends. Not all blepharoplasty incisions are closed with sutures by all physicians. Eternal approaches, typically the "sub-ciliary" incision are closed with sutures. Internal eyelid incisions, typically the "transconjunctival" incision can be closed with one or several simple sutures or left to heal without sutures. It is really a matter of surgeon preference and a very reasonable pre-op question.
Blepharoplasty. in blepharoplasty procedures, the eyelid skin is closed with sutures.
Yes. Sutures are placed on the upper and lower eyelids. http://www.dassmd.com/eyelid-surgery/index.html.
