The surgeon establishes the proper amount of skin and muscle that can be safely excised by placing one blade of a smooth forceps on the marked eyelid crease incision and gently pinching sufficient redundant tissue between it and the second blade of the forceps to cause the lid margin to just begin to invert.We use the extra fine point skin marker by Scan lanTM as it has an ultra-fine tip and allows precise marking.
This manoeuvre is repeated along the length of the eyelid crease incision, and the better extent of the incision is marked with a pen at each location as a general extra guide. The central preaponeurotic fat compartment is bluntly teased into view.
This fat is yellow and generally contains few vessels. We have found that clamping the fat before excision is not required and bleeding vessels are meticulously cauterized. Sculpting of fat should always be
forward to the orbital rim.
The fat is generally trimmed to a level just outside the orbital rim. Caution must be exercised to not over sculpt which will yield a displeasing aged appearing eyelid. The medial fat pocket is more extensive than the central pocket.
The Lasik eye surgery can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. The surgery is performed for either cosmetic or functional reasons. Sometimes excess upper eyelid tissue obstructs the upper visual field or can weigh down the eyelid and create tired-feeling eyes. Most often, people choose Lasik surgery to improve their look by making the area around their eyes firmer. When this surgery is performed to improve vision, rather than for cosmetic reasons only, it may be covered by assurance.
On the upper eyelids, an additional fold of skin can suspend over the eyelashes and get in the way of seeing. The fat that cushions the eyeball from the skull can also cause bulges in the upper and lower eye. The thin covering that holds the fat in place weakens with age, letting the fat come forward into the lids. Skin redundancy and muscle laxity involving the eyelids can blight vision. Ptosis occurs when the eyelid droops more than is considered normal, potentially impairing vision. The person should follow the doctor's pre-operative instructions carefully and thoroughly review the post-operative instructions in a better way. As a result of surgery, your eye may not be able to produce enough tears. Dry eye not only causes discomfort, but can reduce visual quality due to blurring and other visual symptoms.

It can be discerned from the medial compartment by its whiter coloration. Hemostasis is particularly important in this region because the medial fat pad contains terminal branches of the ophthalmic artery and multiple large-caliber veins. Bleeding from these vessels can be important and insufficiently controlled.
