Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a non-invasive procedure that consists of correcting excess skin and fat pockets on the upper and lower eyelids.
Although bags under the eyes worsen as we age, these unsightly problems can appear at any age. The objective of this aesthetic treatment is to rejuvenate the look, eliminating the appearance of aging and tiredness.
The upper blepharoplasty operation is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia, and takes approximately 45 minutes.
The postoperative period is simple; the points on the upper eyelids are removed after six days and the scars are hidden. The bruises that may appear can be hidden with makeup from the fourth day.
The lower bags are usually removed transconjunctivally (through a small incision inside the eyelid), with the advantage of not leaving obvious scars and not requiring stitches.
After the intervention, discomfort and swelling may appear on the eyelids and the excess skin will disappear at the same time as the inflammation. Sometimes additional laser or surgical treatment may be necessary.
