With the passage of time the skin of the eyelid tends to fall and with it a sad and tired look is reflected in both men and women.
In women it also affects the time to make up with shadows that having the excess skin on the eyelid does not show the shadows. It is one of the most common signs of aging among the population.
¿Which types of eyelid surgeries does exist?
There are three types of eyelid surgeries:
- Upper eyelid surgery: it is surgery that involves the removal of excess skin of the upper eyelid, and the removal of the bags of fat.
- Lower eyelid surgery: this is the surgery that involves the removal of excess skin from the lower part of the eye and the removal of fat pockets.
- Transconjunctival eyelid surgery: it is done exclusively if there is not an excess of skin in the lower part ofthe eye, it consists of the extraction of the bags of fat.
The incisions are made strategically in order to not leave visible scars.
All the techniques are performed on an outpatient clinic, without the need for hospitalization, through local anesthesia and relaxation, allowing the patient to return to their daily routine as soon as possible.
Blepharoplasty is one of the least painful surgeries, and with a simple and fast postoperative. Seven days after the surgery, the stitches are removed and then a specific cream for the scars begins to be used.
