Simply applying lotions or moisturizers is unsafe, and not rmended by most dermatologists. Companies make specific types of gels and creams for the skin around your eyes. Using these types of lubricants can help you achieve the moisturized skin you are looking for on your eyelids. Another good treatment option is to gently wash with baby shampoo and wipe the area clean, to avoid known allergens. Discontinue using makeup until your condition heals. Try not to touch dirty surfaces with your hands. Unfortunately, many people naturally touch their face and eyes without thinking about it.
Keep your hands clean by constantly washing them or by applying an antibacterial gel. Wash your face twice a day, especially before bed and before reapplying makeup. Warm washcloths or warm pads can help to soften the dry skin on your eyelids, making it easier to remove. Always remember that dryness around eyes may also indicate a serious condition. Pay attention to whether the dryness bes chronic or the skin gets excessively dry, and visit your doctor in either situation. If you don’t treat it, the dry skin may get significantly worse, so always take care of it as soon as you can.

DermTV Common Causes for Itchy and Swollen Eyelids DermTV.Com Epi 012
music Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause and wee to DermTV. Itchy red swollen eyelids is a vexing and annoying problem that I see mostly in my female patients, and the mostmon cause of this problem, believe it or not, is nail polish. There are only two things that touch the skin of your eyesyour fingers and your makeup, and it’s usually not your makeup. Nail polish only causes this reaction if you’re allergic to it in the first 46 hours after it’s been applied while it’s still drying because the chemicals are much more irritating in the liquid nail polish than in the dry nail polish. They actually change when they’re on your nails, and those chemicals, after 68 hours, are no longer irritating. So the next time you wake up with red swollen itchy eyelids, think about whether or not you had new nail polish applied the day before and, if you remove your nail polish, reapply it and keep your hands away from your eyelids for the first eight hours and I’ll bet that that rash doesn’te back.
Solving Extra Skin Over the Upper Eyelids to Relieve Irritation and Heaviness
What are my droopy eyelid options I am 44 years old. My right eye lid is dropping more than left and causing a very heavy feeling in my eye and irritation. Left isn’t so great either but not as bad. What are my options Would insurance cover I am curious of costs if insurance wouldn’t cover. Thank you. Thank you for your question! You submitted a question with photos that demonstrate one eyelid appearing heavier than the other eyelid and you’re asking about options as well as about whether insurance coverage would be appropriate.
So in reviewing your photos, and anytime someone like yourselfes to our practice and we look at heavy looking eyelids, we try to first differentiate, is there extra skin over the eyelid which is termed dermatochalasis, is the eyelid drooping because of a muscle issue related to the muscle that lifts the eyelid called the levator muscle and that term is ptosis and we also look at the at the brow position. The brow position could also result in extra skin being pushed downward on top of the eyelid. We refer to that as brow ptosis.
Now, when you look at your photos, it is clear that the brows are relatively asymmetric. This is something that is very much normal. At 44 years old, I would suspect that your brows have note down significantly and I would also advise against a brow lift because I think with your brows elevated even with a few millimeter, it may have a negative impact on your facial expression and you may look eternally surprised. So I think that looking at your photos and looking at how your eyes appear where the upper eyelid margin is not low enough to be affecting the pupil, what appears you have is something called dermatochalasis.
Dermatochalasis means extra skin over the eyelids. And for that, the solution is blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty basically means to address extra skin, extra soft tissue, extra fat, anything that is impinging on top of the upper eyelid. Now there is an art of doing cosmetic blepharoplasty in that you want to look natural, you don’t want too much extra skin removed. If you do any kind of online research, one of the mostmon concerns is the unfortunate event when someone has too much skin removed and they have difficulty closing their eyes. As a cosmetic oculofacial plastic surgeon for 20 years, we have patients whoe from all over the world for revision surgery where it’s for drooping of the upper eyelid after blepharoplasty as well as skin shortage of the upper eyelid after blepharoplasty. So this something that cannot be overstated as being so important for your situation. The idea is that blepharoplasty for the eyelid is not only taking as much skin as possible. It is really about the art of the design as well as employing techniques that can allow skin to fold in properly so that it will look attractive and will look natural and you won’t look just as tired.
Now to address the question about insurance coverage, having practiced for 20 years, I have watched how insurancepanies have be very strategic in the way they present themselves to patients and doctors. And if you were to call your insurancepany, I would believe likely, well yes, if you were covered if your doctor shows it’s medically necessary. This is where the whole medical industry became so abused. And someone like yourself, even if few years ago, 15 or 20 years plus ago, if you had any visual field defect, it would be something be covered. That unfortunately led to a lot of abuse in the system and a lot of people who didn’t have a functional issue, functional problem for eyelid surgery would get covered and so now the pendulum swung to the other direction, now this is something extremely difficult. This is one of the reasons why over 10 years ago, in my practice, we stopped all insurance altogether. We found there the deceptive practiced to be detrimental to our ability to deliver the proper care to our patients. The insurancepanies would improve something and then later on, deny it and that’s kind of what they do.
Looking at your photo, I doubt, I think it is unlikely that any medical director of any insurancepany would consider your upper eyelids heavy enough to be blocking your vision to at least a significant enough degree. Essentially, the general rule of thumb is, if someone can see your pupil, that means you can see out. And it really takes really low eyelid to the point ofplete coverage before an insurancepany would consider that and I even had cases that even then, it got denied. So it’s no secret my discussed with the insurancepany.
So I think ultimately, you would save yourself the hassle by just accepting that this mostly likely a truly cosmetic procedure. Identify an expert in upper eyelid surgery. Many doctors perform eyelid surgery in the hierarchy of specialties, one would argue that a sub specialty is super specialty like oculoplastic or oculofacial plastic surgery is a position uniquely qualified to perform this type of procedure so you may want to start there but certainly you have many options and you can do your research and learn about cosmetic surgeons and other doctors who also perform blepharoplasty. So once you find a doctor who you arefortable with, move forward. I think looking at your eyes, there’s a lot of opportunity to have your eyes looking better after it’s done.
Why Eyelid Surgery is Not for Addressing Wrinkles the Importance of Eyelids for Eye Function
Wrinkles and Excess Skin After Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty I had both upper lower blepharoplasty 4 months ago. Please tell me if I should have reconstructive surgery for the wrinkled skin texture at the outer edge and the big wrinkle at inner edge of my eyes. There is also a piece of skin at both outer edges that pulls when opening my eyes. Should this be fixed My eyes are so different in shape which is what I wanted fixed with this surgery. Is that too much to expect I was also told that the skin area under my eyes will always be slightly swollen.
Thank you for your question! You’ve asked several things in your question and you submitted some photos. First of all, let’s assume a couple of things about the history. You’ve had upper and lower eyelid surgery and in the photo, you mentioned about wrinkles, about excess skin and you mentioned about the eyelid being pulled down.
Something to understand about cosmetic eyelid surgery in general, is that eyelid surgery specifically does not address wrinkles. Upper eyelid surgery typically addresses excess skin or in situations such as asian eyelid surgery, it involves the creation of a crease or fold in the upper eyelid where one did no exist. It does not necessarily address wrinkles directly. Now in the case of upper eyelids, if someone has a lot of extra skin, then yes, there may be some improvement in the appearance of wrinkles but a lot of times it’s about the amount of skin that had a lot of those wrinkles is removed.
In the lower eyelid, that’s where a lot of things get trickier. With the intention of improving wrinkles in the lower eyelids, a lot of plastic surgeon will remove skin. And unfortunately, that is not the best choice from my experience of 20 years of oculoplastic cosmetic surgery, in that we have to distinguish skin excess versus skin quality.
