Blepharoplastyis one of the most impressive methods of surgical facial rejuvenation. The thin and delicate skin around the eyes begins to age the fastest. Wrinkles, drooping skin orso-called bags under the eyes take away the youthful look to your eyes. The eyelids allows surgical correction of their appearance, and hence the rejuvenation of their eyes. The treatment may concern the upper and lower eyelids.
For the correction of the upper eyelids, the excess of loose, stretched and unsightly wrinkling skin is qualified, which also very often limits the visibility. Removal of excess skin gives an aesthetic as well as practical effect. When correcting the lower eyelids, the most common indication for surgery is the so-called bags under the eyes. Usually, this problem is related to age, although hit may also affect young people who are caused by anatomical structure.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. In the case of the upper eyelid, a cut in the eyelid is made, removing the unnecessary piece of skin and excess fat tissue. The scar is located in the eyelid fold, it is an invisible place with an open eye. After a few weeks the scar fades and is practically invisible. In the case of the lower eyelid, a cut under the eyelashes is carried out. A fragment of the skin is cut, the orbital flare is modeled or removed, and the ocular muscle of the eye is corrected. Excess skin and circular muscle is gently removed, then stitched the wound.
In both cases the patient can return home a few hours after the procedure with a small dressing on the wound, which does not disturb the field of view. For the next days, apply the cooling compresses to the eyelids, while in the case of the lower eyelid it should be gently massaged. Sutures are removed 4-5 days after surgery. Healing is painless and patients do not take any special medications. The period of convalescence at the upper eyelid lasts 7-10 days, with the lower eyelid around 14 days.
