Transconjunctival blepharoplasty

Plastic surgery has the status of "medicine of youth" because of its peculiarity to return beauty and aesthetics to both the body and the face. Thin eyelid skin is significantly susceptible to the passage of time. The delicate skin of the eyes loses elasticity and tone over the years, which leads to the appearance of folds, wrinkles and tissue displacement. For this reason, blepharoplasty is one of the most common beauty procedures.

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty of the eyelids is highly aesthetic technology and allows you to return the youth of the eyes and correct congenital features. This type of blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure, but belongs to the most gentle methods of correcting physiological and age-related changes in the eye area.

Indications for the procedure

In the process of skin wilting, due to the loss of its elasticity and elasticity, not only wrinkles appear. Lowering the corners of the eyes or hernia spoil the appearance.

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is indicated in such cases:

  • deep wrinkles around the eyes;
  • deep wrinkles around the eyes;
  • pronounced tear trough;
  • eyelid ptosis;
  • hernia of the lower eyelid, "bags" under the eyes;
  • hernia of the lower eyelid, "bags" under the eyes;

Depending on the type of aesthetic problem, different versions of blepharoplasty may be used. In any case, laser resurfacing or other cosmetic procedure will not be more effective than surgical eyelid repair.

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty

Before plastic surgery, an initial doctor's consultation and preliminary examination are required. The surgeon will clarify the wishes and assess the possibility of surgery, draw up an examination algorithm and write out directions for the necessary tests. This approach will identify contraindications and carry out full-fledged preoperative diagnostics.

The clinic will offer to undergo the following studies:

  • ECG;
  • urinalysis;
  • fluorography;
  • coagulogram;
  • blood tests (general, for infections and viruses/HIV, hepatitis, syphilis).

A significant difference between transconjunctival blepharoplasty is the access from the inside of the eyelid. The doctor makes an incision in the connective membrane of the lower eyelid eyeball. Surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia with pre-administration of an anti-inflammatory drug.

Vasoconstrictors are often used, which are instilled in the patient's eyes before and after repair to provide antimicrobial and bacteriostatic prophylaxis. After infection prevention, an incision is made in the lower arch of the conjunctiva, which provides access to fatty fiber to be treated.

Recovery period after transconjunctival blepharoplasty

In the process of transconjunctival blepharoplasty, external sutures do not occur. The conjunctival membrane is able to quickly recover, so it does not need suture manipulations, since it heals independently in a few hours. The number of rehabilitation days depends on individual characteristics of the patient's body.

The clinic also recommends adhering to basic restrictions:

  • temporarily exclude sports loads;
  • refusal of water procedures immediately after the surgery;
  • downward inclinations are not allowed for 2-3 days;
  • it is preferable to refuse eyelash extensions for a while;
  • it is undesirable to use contact lenses in the first weeks.
Life before and after blepharoplasty

A pronounced hernia of the lower eyelid and deep tear troughs spoil the appearance of a person of any sex and age. This affects his self-esteem and interferes with successful communication with other people. Sometimes age and physiological changes of the eyelids interfere with the construction of career and personal life for aesthetic reasons and internal uncertainty.

The transconjunctival blepharoplasty carried out creates a certain side phenomenon - the new-found beauty and youth of the eyes is reflected in the internal state of the patient. Often, after correction of ptosis or "hernia", the professional and personal life of a person changes.

Along with this, in the plastic surgery clinic IQPLASTIQUE, you can save yourself from psychological discomfort and daily experiences caused by imperfection of your own eyes. Many note positive changes in their own mood after changes in their view.
