EYELIDS

What is it for?

Corrects the excess skin of the upper eyelids and other changes resulting from aging

 

What does it mean?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the eyelids by removing skin and fat from the upper eyelid that are in excess and which give a tired look, and may even limit the field of vision

 

Procedure time

1 hour

 

Other procedures that can be associated

Often associated with lower blepharoplasty (4-eyelid blepharoplasty), complete facelift, mini-lift, brow lift, botulinum toxin

 

Type of anaesthesia

Local anaesthesia with or without sedation

 

Scars

Positioned along the skin folds of the eyelids, almost unnoticeable after 1 to 3 months

 

Hospitalization

It does not require hospitalization, although it does require an accompanying person to return home due to the possible difficulty to fully open the eyes after surgery caused by swelling

 

Recovery

You can start reading after 2-3 days. The return to daily activities can start at around 5 to 7 days, although minor bruising may sometimes persists up to 2 weeks

 

Most frequent problems and risks

Temporary discomfort, feeling of "tightness" in the eyelid area, swelling or bruising. Excessive tearing and sensitivity to light during the first weeks should be expected. Temporary dryness, burning or itching in the eyes may also occur but these side effects are rare.

More rarely, there may be blurred vision or temporary double vison, infection, bleeding, swelling at the corners of the eyelids, slight asymmetry in healing and hypertrophy, difficulty in completely closing the eyes (which is rarely permanent), and a recessed lower eyelid position (if lower blepharoplasty), which may require additional surgery. Permanent loss of vision is a risk but this is extremely rare

 

Longevity

The improvement, though it may not be lifelong in some cases, usually lasts many years
