The skin in the area of the eyelids is particularly thin and as such is extremely sensitive to the effects of aging.
With age, the eyelids slowly change their appearance. Excess skin in the form of bags, wrinkles and oily pads occurs on them, which greatly changes the perception of beauty and significantly affects the loss of self-confidence.
Although a number of innovative non-invasive methods are available to solve this problem, excess skin and adipose tissue on the eyelids can be completely removed only and exclusively by surgery called blepharoplasty or eyelid correction.
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty or eyelid correction is an aesthetic surgical procedure that removes excess skin and adipose tissue from the upper and lower eyelids.
Candidates for blepharoplasty are all persons, regardless of age, whose skin on the eyelids has lost elasticity and consistency.
Most often, these are elderly people because the skin on the eyelids is the thinnest, so the first signs of aging are most visible on them, but candidates for eyelid correction can also be people in their 20s and 30s who also develop excess skin on their eyelids or in the case of a genetic predisposition to the appearance of dark circles.
It is necessary to emphasize that blepharoplasty is not only an aesthetic, but also a functional problem.
In exceptional situations, the eyelids can be lowered so much that they cannot be raised normally, thus interfering with vision.
The entire procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is completely painless. It lasts about 2-3 hours, of which 45 minutes are left for preoperative preparation (disinfection of the operative field and drawing).
At the MakeOver Polyclinic, blepharoplasty is performed by a top ophthalmologist who is very well acquainted with the anatomical structures around the eyes, so the procedure is simple and without risk to the patient.
With the help of an experienced specialist, detailed preoperative preparation, precisely performed procedure and disciplined behavior of the patient after the operation, blepharoplasty gives top and long-term results and restores the patient’s self-confidence.
