¿What is this procedure?

¿What is Blepharoplasty?

An incision is made in the upper crease of the eyelid and another in the lower part below the eyelashes or inside the eyelid. From these incisions, the skin will be separated from the underlying tissue and there will be removed excess fat and flaccid skin. The incision will be closed with small sutures, which will be removed within four to five days after surgery.
Patients who only have excess of fat on the lower eyelids (no excess of skin), are candidates for surgery inside the eyelid. Avoiding an external incision, however, it requires intravenous sedation to perform.
Blepharoplasty can not improve dark spots on the skin around the eyes or change the drooping eyebrows.

Consultation Process for Blepharoplasty Surgery

It is important to mention that eyelid rejuvenation surgery differs in each patient, due to differences in face and eyelids in each person. Therefore, in consultation, the surgeon should perform an evaluation, focusing on details such as: skin type, wrinkles, amount of sagging skin, excess of muscle and the amount of extra fat. Also, the doctor should be advised of vision problems or dry eyes.
In addition to publicizing general aspects of the intervention such as pros and cons. To know the patient’s expectations, agreeing on mutual goals. Remember that successful plastic surgery depends on proper communication and relationship between the patient and the surgeon.
