Eyelids are often the first area of the face to show aging signs, not rarely linked to constitutional reasons.
The upper eyelid becomes heavy, "bags" and fine lines in correspondence of the lower eyelids appear. Blepharoplasty surgery can remove excess skin from the upper eyelid and the "bags" under the eyes, revitalizing and rejuvenating the patient's look. At the upper eyelid the resultant scars will be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region and usually is no longer visible already after a short time from surgery. In lower blepharoplasty the scar is just below the edge of the lashes or even inside the eyelid itself
Surgery is performed under local anesthesia, with a slight sedation without any need for the patient to stay in hospital afterwards.
After surgery your eyes may swell and have bruises due to disappear in a short time.
The subtle wrinkles of the lower eyelid can be corrected by associating a laser treatment of the lower eyelid.
