Blefaroplastia

The eyelids are the frame of the eyes. Any change in the eyelids affects the look and natural expression of the face.


Changes in the eyelids may begin at an early age but are more common in patients over 45 years of age.


Process

The upper eyelids lose firmness, wrinkle, fall and make the eye look smaller causing a sad and tired look. The lower eyelids wrinkle, lose firmness and can show the bags of fat, showing an expression of tiredness and old age.


All these changes are improved by doing eyelid surgery. Some patients require operating the upper and lower eyelids but others, only those above or only those below. It is very important to do a complete physical examination to analyze which is the best alternative treatment and surgery to achieve a natural result.


It is a surgery that can be done with local anesthesia. No hospitalization is necessary. Recovery requires a minimum of 3 days of rest. The scars are very little visible.
