The eye skin, as it is so thin, suffers from the effects produced by the pass of time, providing a tired and sad look.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure with the aim of removing excess of skin on the eyelids, both above and below, as well as the underlying fatty tissue. Blepharoplasty ends with sagging skin and bags and can help improving the vision in older people who have a significant excess of upper eyelid that falls on the pupil.
It is designed individually for each patient, depending on their particular needs. It can be done in isolation for upper, lower or both eyelids, or in combination with other surgical procedures on eyes, face, eyebrows or nose.
It is done with local anesthesia and sedation.
The result of this intervention is very favorable and long-lasting because the eyelid bags do not usually reappear. This surgery does not stop the aging process, but decreases the saggy skin and refreshes the eye zone, making it lighter and natural.
The skin incisión is done in order to remove the remaining skin.
Unscarred skin without points, through the connective tissue. It is done in young people who have bags but not excess skin.
The suture is performed almost completely within the dermis and removed after 5 days.
The lenght of the surgery depends on the pathology and the patient profile, but it usually does not exceed two hours of surgery.
Blepharoplasty is usually an outpatient surgery.
