Eyelid Surgery / Blepharoplasty


This is the procedure that aims to remove bags under the eyes and rejuvenate withered or heavy eyelids. Dark circles or withered eyes are evidence of either a genetic trait or the ransom of age. In some cases patients are embarrassed at a very young age. At first, the eyelids are swollen only in the morning, then the edema persists a little longer each day, makeup adheres less well to the skin in women.

It is about a rejuvenation of the gaze which becomes more “enlightened”. The tired look fades, the pockets disappear. Scars are almost invisible, even up close.

On the upper eyelid the incision follows the normal fold of the eyelid, then the excess skin is removed and, if necessary, the fatty pockets are removed.

On the lower eyelid the incision runs along the ciliary margin. Protruding fatty pockets are removed. Usually, the amount of skin resected is minimal.

Blepharoplasty is not a painful procedure. A bandage with ice packs is left in place a few minutes after the operation. Edema and bruising (bruising) may temporarily prevent you from fully closing your eyes while sleeping.

DURATION OF INTERVENTION: 1.30 hours / 4 eyelids
ANESTHESIA: Local + sedation

The threads are removed very early between the 5th and 8th day. But you have to wait ten days before wearing your contact lenses again.

Generally, it takes 8 days of social discomfort but it is possible to live normally. It is possible to put on make-up from the 8th day.

The anesthesia can be “pure local” for the upper eyelids but most often it is preferable to perform “neuroleptanalgesia” for the lower eyelids to which is associated local anesthesia, more rarely, general anesthesia.
