About the blepharoplasty procedure
Blepharoplasty is a surgical intervention that aims to correct the appearance of the eye area, upper and lower eyelids. The procedure is performed under anesthesia and offers a rejuvenated, lifted appearance to the eyes. Depending on the needs of each patient, the procedure can be performed on a single area, or even both, for an optimal effect.
The intervention is addressed to patients who face bags under the eyes or the appearance of droopy eyelids. Being a surgical intervention, the results are permanent, and the patient permanently gets rid of the unwanted appearance in the eye area.
How is the blepharoplasty procedure performed?
The intervention is performed under anesthesia, so that the patient does not feel pain or discomfort during the operation.
Through small incisions, the specialist will extract the excess skin that gives the eyelids the “fallen” effect, lifting the area slightly.
After extracting the skin, the area will be sutured and special bandages will be applied.
A few days after the intervention, the patient must come to a new consultation, where the doctor will check the area and its degree of healing.
The final result
Being a surgical intervention, the results will not be visible immediately after the operation. The patient will wear special plasters to keep the hygiene of the area.
After 10-14 days after the intervention, after the doctor will remove the threads, you will see small improvements in the appearance of the area.
The final results will be seen after the first 6 months, when the area is completely healed.
The rules after the blepharoplasty procedure
In the first 24-48 hours after the procedure, it is recommended to apply cold compresses to the area. These have the role of reducing edema and swelling.
At the same time, it is recommended that the patient keep the position of the head slightly elevated, in the first days after the operation, for the proper healing of the area.
If pain or any kind of discomfort occurs, the patient can opt for analgesics.
The sutures will be removed approximately 7 days after the intervention.

What is the optimal age at which I can opt for blepharoplasty?

Is the blepharoplasty procedure painful?
The blepharoplasty intervention is not painful and is performed under anesthesia, to ensure all the comfort of the patients. Later, if necessary, the doctor can recommend an anti-inflammatory/analgesic treatment, depending on the case.
