The purpose of blepharolasty is to rejuvenate the eyes and the face, when a great part of the skin droops upon the eyelids, making your eyes look tired and the excess skin may even hamper the vision.
The purpose of this procedure is to remodel the upper or lower eyelid, removing and/or replacing the excess tissue, as well as reinforcing the surrounding muscles and tendons.
Lower lid surgery is almost always intended to improve puffy lower eyelid “bags” and reduce skin wrinkling. “Bags” (are fat accumulation in the eyelids) may occur at very early ages, as they may be an inherited trait.
However, in most cases, when people turn forty years of age, their upper and lower eyelids tend to sag, due to the excess skin in them.
The surgeon makes external incisions along the natural crease lines of the upper eyelids and also underneath the lower eyelid eyelashes, as well as in the lower eyelid internal surface. Once the incisions have been made and the skin is tightened, the excess skin and tissues are removed, joining the cut ends and closing them with fine sutures. This procedure takes from one to three hours.
Anesthesia, hospitalization and recovery
We use local anesthesia with supplemental sedation. Since it is an ambulatory surgery, you do not have to stay at the clinic, you may return home after a short rest.
After surgery, your eyes and surrounding areas will be swollen and some bruises may appear; all of this will subside after the first week. The final results of this surgery may be appreciated three months later.
