EYELID SURGERY – BLEPHAROPLASTY
This set of surgical techniques are aimed at the rejuvenation of the look and the middle facial third, removing the excess of skin, the bags of fat, and the dark circles that so often produce an appearance of fatigue.
It can be done on the upper, lower or both eyelids. Eyelids can be corrected separately or performed together with other facial aesthetic surgeries, such as lifting or facial lipofilling, creating spectacular results. It is not only performed for aesthetic purposes, it also corrects functional problems (as drooping of the eyelid can affect vision).
Generally, the excess of skin in the eyelid appears with aging. This is why the patients who undergo this treatment usually have 35 years old or more.
The length of the surgery ranges from 1 to 2 hours, depending on if it is performed on the upper, lower or both lids. Hospitalization depends on the type of anesthesia employed, usually performed with local anesthesia and sedation, thus, the patient can return home in a few hours. Once the patient is discharged, the stitches will be removed after 5-7 days and between 7 and 10 days after the intervention you will be able to return to work.
It is a common and simple surgical intervention. If it is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, it presents a few complications, and produces a high degree of satisfaction.
