Skin in the eye area is the most delicate and sensitive to external influences. As a rule, with age it undergoes aging processes.
Quite often, swelling in the region of inferior and superior eyelids manifests itself at a young age, this is due to congenital weakness of a muscular fascial complex and manifests itself by contouring fatty “hernias” in the form of bags under eyes and heavy superior eyelids.
Eyelid plasty, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can dramatically improve an eye area attraction, erase signs of aging and everyday stress on your face. Also, blepharoplasty is often performed as an addition to face-lifting.
Tightening eyelids will help you look and feel younger and more confident!
The operation in inferior and superior eyelids can be performed in combination (circular blepharoplasty, or quadrilateral blepharoplasty), and isolated (plasty of the superior eyelid, or superior blepharoplasty, inferior eyelid plasty, or inferior blepharoplasty).
Main age-related changes in superior eyelids are primarily associated with uplifting skin fold and “bags” at inner corners of an eye (internal fatty hernias). In connection with this, the operation is aimed at the excision of excess skin of upper eyelids with plasty of fatty hernias. A scar often looks very cosmetic.
Changes in inferior eyelid are manifested in the form of evident “bags” under the eyes (fatty hernias) and multiple skin folds and wrinkles. Lower blepharoplasty consists of the plasty of fatty hernias (internal, medial and external) and in the excision of excess of each, or of a skin muscle flap. If necessary, an external canthophesia (strengthening an outer edge of a lower eyelid) is performed. A scar, as a rule, is highly cosmetic and is located in a fold under the ciliate edge of an eyelid.
At the meeting, we will discuss your medical history, especially as regards previous injuries (damages), allergic reactions and previous plastic surgeries, if any.
Examination before blepharoplasty begins with detection of the degree of age-related skin changes, and skin structure and color are estimated.
We will consider in detail all the problems that you are experiencing, which, you think, are undesirable and must be corrected.
After examining external characteristics of eyelids, we will discuss in detail your wishes and on how much, in our opinion, the operation will meet them.
Also you will be informed about all the details of upcoming eyelid plasty, its duration, rehabilitation period and possible complications.
During the postoperative period, development of general surgical complications and corresponding complications of this operation is possible. The risk of the onset of the first (suppuration, bleeding, thrombophlebitis, thromboembolism) is reduced through an appropriate preoperative examination and, if necessary, through medicinal preparation.
All of the above-mentioned complications after blepharoplasty are exceptions that arise periodically despite the leading standards in surgical practice. We have outlined them for the purpose of informing you properly and in no way intimidating.
