Our eyes, in addition to the numerous problems that may present in their function, also have cosmetic problems, which may be the result of an injury, disease, age, or simply be congenital.
Blepharoplasty guarantees an immediate and permanent solution to all cosmetic deformities, without leaving any postoperative signs, or causing postoperative pains.
Normally, each patient has their own wish about the form that they would like their eyes to take, and they had better discuss it with their plastic surgeon.
Most women want a bigger surface, in order to apply eyeshadow on the moving eyelid and the area under their eyebrow. On the contrary, however, men do not want to get a feminine look, showing more interest in removing the fold that covers the eye, making thus more room for the upper eyelid.
Whatever is the patient’s wish, though, it should be reemphasized that each case is special, and the final result differs, according to the extent of the surgical intervention of the plastic surgeon without altering the other face characteristics, or causing other kind of problems.
Upper Blepharoplasty removes excess skin and a small amount of fat in the area of the moving eyelid. Through this process, the eye opening and the side range of vision increase, the feeling of a burden disappears, and the cap of the eye returns to its youthful state.
Furthermore, with Lower Blepharoplasty, as the skin is stretched at this point, wrinkles also disappear in that area. It could be stated, therefore, that blepharoplasty helps us maintain a youthful, vibrant, and relaxed gaze, regardless of our age.
Normally, the duration of the hospital stay is (1) hour after the end of the surgery (the operation is performed with local anesthesia). The stitches are removed after six (6) days.
