Blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids - surgical correction of the eyelids, the purpose of which is to eliminate the effect of "bags under the eyes"
For age-related changes in the lower eyelid, skin excesses are often characterized by hernial "sacks". And in many patients hernial "bags" can appear long before the formation of excess skin - at a young age. These features affect the therapeutic tactics.
For young patients with "bags" under the eyes, an operation was specially developed to remove the "bags" without cutting the skin-transconjunctival blepharoplasty.
It is very important to perform this operation on time, as "bags" very soon can overgrow the skin, and then you will need a classic plastic. With age changes in the lower eyelid, the operation is aimed at eliminating excess skin and wrinkles. After the procedure, parallel to the line of the eyelashes, a thin hem is formed, which is almost invisible after a month. Modern techniques allow, through the incision of the eyelids, to additionally pull up the central part of the face, which, in the final analysis, gives the best cosmetic effect.
There is no special preparation for this operation, it is enough to pass over a small set of tests and consult a surgeon
Operation of blepharoplasty is performed under local anesthesia and lasts from 40 minutes to 1.5 hours, so the vestigial period proceeds easily. After the operation, the patient is monitored for 1-2 hours in the clinic and then discharged home.
Edema after surgery can last from several days to 2 weeks, for the reduction of which cold compresses and special ointments are used.
The sutures are removed after 7-8 days.
If all the surgeon's recommendations are followed, after 5-10 days after the operation, patients can return to their usual lifestyle.
Contrary to the existing misconception, the operation of blepharoplasty does not lead to impaired vision.
