Eyelid surgery rejuvenates your appearance by several years and is suitable for both women and men.
The reason for eyelid surgery is usually drooping of the upper eyelid, a tired appearance, sagging skin around the eyes, or an excess of skin tissue under the eyes, known as “bags.” The most common reason for performing this surgery is skin aging and the loss of its elasticity. Eyelids are in constant motion throughout life, experiencing a lot of strain, so the initial signs of aging are often visible there.
A solution to attaining a more youthful appearance can be plastic surgery of the eyelids. A relatively short surgical procedure can address skin changes caused by aging with highly effective results. This leads to a brighter appearance, relieves the eyes, removes swelling, and reduces drooping of the eyelids.
The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis, with local anesthesia applied to the treated area. There is no need for any special preparation in advance, although it is recommended to avoid medications containing acetylsalicylic acid for 3 weeks before the operation.
Following blepharoplasty, it is recommended to sleep on your back in the initial days to prevent unilateral swelling of the eyelids. Mild swelling and bruising are common and typically disappear within approximately 1 week after the procedure. The stitches are removed 7 days after the surgery.
