Eyelid plastic surgery: blepharoplasty
Heaviness of the upper eyelids by excess fat, excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid, bags under the eyes or drooping appearance of the gaze, all are treating by blepharoplasty.
This eyelid surgery for aesthetic purposes is an effective eye intervention, which reduces the signs of aging present in the eyelids and replaces the “tired” appearance of the eyes with a more rested and relaxed appearance. It creates immediate and lasting rejuvenation while maintaining its natural expression.
In case of blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids, local anesthesia is most often used. While in case of lower blepharoplasty or upper and lower eyelids in the same operation. Potentiate local anesthesia or general anesthesia is most often use.
In other words, all types of anesthesia are possible, it all depends on the wishes of the patient.
The procedure takes place in three stages, first the removal of excess skin from the eyelids, then the removal of any fatty pockets to make them less droopy and swollen and finally the sutures of the invisible scars.
The final result of the blepharoplasty is obtaine at 6 months.
