Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery in the eye area, the essence of which is to correct the incision of the eyes and the shape of the eyelids, as well as to eliminate aesthetic imperfections resulting from age-related changes in the skin. The purpose of surgical manipulation is to eliminate excess skin, overhanging eyelids and hernias. When properly performed, the look becomes more open and light, giving the face a special freshness.

Indications for the procedure

Blepharoplasty is performed when there is:

  • overhanging of the upper eyelids due to age-related skin transformations;
  • presence of deep wrinkles or creases;
  • hernia;
  • a large number of small lines of the lower eyelids;
  • reduced visual quality due to an overhanging eyelid.

At the same time, the indications can be not only clinical in nature, but also purely personal. Many patients simply want to change the expressiveness of the eyes, therefore, they go for plastic correction of their incision and eyelid shape.

Types of blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty comes in several types:

  • Lower eyelid plastic. This surgery allows you to get rid of eye bags, laxity and sagging skin integument in the eye area.
  • Upper eyelid plastic. Solves the problem of the overhanging eyelids.
  • Upper eyelid plastic. Solves the problem of the overhanging eyelids.
  • Circular blepharoplasty. This is a comprehensive surgical correction of cosmetic defects of the lower and upper eyelids. It has the greatest therapeutic effect.

How is the procedure performed

The stage of plastic surgery depends on the type of surgery. However, the general algorithm of actions is as follows:

  1. An incision is made in the skin fold of the eyelids, through which the redistribution or removal of adipose tissues, excision of skin excesses or plastic correction of muscle structures is carried out;

  2. At the end, stitches are applied, which are practically not visible.

Blepharoplasty is performed under general or local anesthesia for 1 hour.

Benefits of life before and after
