Blepharoplasty aims to eliminate the fatty tissue and excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids
Our eyes are the part of the face that most characterises our individuality. Their shape, their colour and their expressiveness communicate our moods and often say much more than expressing the same in words.
The signs of time encumber appearance making the whole image of the face tired and stiff.
It can happen even to very young individuals whose eyelids, are weighed down by fatty tissue and excess skin and need, therefore, the attention of the surgeon to “lighten up” and “refresh” the appearance of the face.
Blepharoplasty is surgery in exponential demand among operations which patients are most likely to request from the plastic surgeon.
This is because it is a surgery that drastically changes the appearance of the face without altering the original appearance, by giving a more adequate and lightened effect, depriving it of the typical “heaviness” that “bags” under the eyes give your face.
If your face is burdened by the presence of lower or higher “eyelid bags”, or worse, by both, you can solve your problem in one go, quickly and permanently, with blepharoplasty.
All patients who undergo this surgery, go home on the day of surgery carried out in day-hospital. Surgery takes about 30 minutes in the case of lower or upper eyelid surgery and 45 minutes to undergo both. It is performed under local anaesthesia with intravenous mild sedation.
The patient will, along the lower eyelid (in case of lower blepharoplasty), have a single stitch and a small plaster that, in the case of upper blepharoplasty, is also affixed on the upper eyelid crease. The only point of suture to the eyelid, is removed after 4-6 days and the scar that will result will be well hidden and almost invisible.
Already, immediately after surgery, you will not have any kind of problem or discomfort in eyesight. Swelling and some bruising characterise the peripheral region for 4-8 days. The entire face will benefit from the new more relaxed and fresh appearance. All undesirable effects will be alleviated by medical prescriptions specified by your surgeon.
