Eyelids : Blepharoplasty

Overview

The blepharoplasty’s goal is to rejuvenate the eyes by working on the eyelids and the underlying structure.

Surgical technique

The incisions are made in the natural creases of the eyelids and sometimes through the conjunctiva. The underlying muscular system is replaced in its original position; If fat pockets are present they can be removed. The skin in excess is removed without tension and the incisions are closed with very fine sutures.

In order to obtain a most natural result it is possible to use concomitant  techniques such as blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the eyes, lipostructure to correct the loss of volumes, injections to treat superficial wrinkles, laser treatment…

Postoperative care

Usually  it is an outpatient procedure.

A cold mask helps diminish edema and bruising

A few days later you are seen in consultation. Skin care is then recommended in order to accelerate the edema’s resorption. Return to work is usually  possible within a few days even with makeup covering possible bruising.

To conclude

The result is  a natural fresh look.
