Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a delicate operation and a workshop.
This is the elimination of excess, overhanging skin on the upper and lower eyelids, paraorbital hernias (bags under the eyes), as well as more clearly "drawn" furrows.

 

Based on the individual characteristics of the face, the surgeon decides on the method of operation. Excess paraorbital fiber can be removed, and can be stitched in a special way so as not to get a sunken eyeball.

 

In general, maintaining the individual shape of the eye is, in my opinion, a priority. It is important here that after the operation the eye does not become round, the so-called "bird's eye", which refers to the undesirable consequences of blepharoplasty.

 

Unfortunately, patients do not think about such nuances before surgery. But this is professionalism so that all these factors are taken into account.
Well-performed blepharoplasty restores a young look to the eyes, erases “fatigue”.

 

As a rule, the operation takes place under local anesthesia. Sutures are removed on the 2nd or 3rd day and special plasters (ster - strips) are placed.
Photo circular facelift contain performed upper and lower blepharoplasty. it is possible to more objectively evaluate the preservation of the natural shape of the eye, the proportion and, of course, the anti-aging effect of the operation performed.
