EYELID SURGERY

If your eyelids look tired when they’re not, or have lost their youthful vibrancy, a blepharoplasty can help you look much better.

What is Blepharoplasty? Blepharoplasty is the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids, which give the appearance of a tired look, thus rejuvenating the face and eliminating unsightly bags and dark circles under the eyes. Sometimes the eyebrows are also lifted as soon as they fall over the eyelid.

It is a simple procedure, which allows the patient to sleep at home the same day and to quickly return to daily activities.

We Call You

Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery

Eyelids are made of the thinnest skin found on the face and the density of collagen and elastin fibers is significantly lower than that of other areas of skin. This makes eyelids particularly sensitive to the passing of time and the effects of aging become visible very quickly.

As time passes, the epidermis that covers the eyelid becomes wrinkled and sags over the eyelashes on the upper eyelid. The lower eyelid becomes creased and fatty tissues accumulate creating unsightly bags and rings under the eyes.

The operation begins by making incisions in the skin of the eyelids in order to remove excess skin and tighten the orbicularis oculi muscle. Next, enough fatty tissue is removed to eliminate bags under the eyes. Occasionally, the fat is repositioned on the ridge of bone under the eye socket in order to make the cheeks project more.

Finally, the incisions are closed using very fine stitches which, since the eyelids are the area of the body which heals most successfully, will have become practically invisible three months later.

Risks and limitations of eyelid surgery

Although it is an outpatient, extraocular operation, we must not forget that eyelid surgery is an operation and therefore involves a certain level of risk, however minimal it may be. The training and experience of the ophthalmologist, as well as the technology that the clinic possesses, are key factors in preventing the eye operation from being associated with unnecessary and avoidable risks.

Your eyes always treated by an ophthalmologist

The eyelids are a very delicate area, which is responsible not only for protecting the eyes, but also for controlling the flow of tears. It is essential that a qualified ophthalmologist who specializes in this type of operation (ocular plastic surgery) carries out the intervention.

The operation will restore your eyelids to the way they looked before the excess skin and bags, giving your eyes a rejuvenated and natural look.

You will return to normal activity 3 or 4 days after the operation, wearing dark glasses, if you wish, to hide your eyes.
