BLEFHAROPLASTY –Eye Lid Reshaping
Cases in which Blepharoplasty is recommended:
– In cases of bags under the eyes, which are created by excess peri-orbital fat
– Droopy eyes or drooping shape of the eyelids, giving a sad and tired look
– Excess skin on the upper eyelids
– In case of dark circles and peri-orbital skin depression
A preliminary consultation with the surgeon will determine which procedure will be most suitable for the desired aesthetic improvement.
Blepharoplasty surgery can be performed on the lower eyelids, upper eyelids, or both.
After the Upper Blepharoplasty operation, an incision is made along the natural eyelid line and sometimes a few millimetres may protrude from the orbital arch. The stitches are made in such a way as to minimise scarring, which will still correspond to the natural folds of the upper eyelids.
In lower eyelid reshaping, on the other hand, the cut is made a few millimetres from the lower ciliary edge. The surgeon separates the skin tissue from the fatty and muscular tissue and removes the excess parts, such as the bags under the eyes. Post-operative stitches are invisible.
The procedure is performed with local anaesthesia combined with sedation, so that you are not fully awake during the operation.
After the operation, patients are advised to keep their heads up at all times to avoid oedema, which can last 1-2 weeks, but the reaction is entirely individual.
