Sangapuri is an operation on the upper eyelid whose main goal is the formation of the decorative fold and the europeanization of the eyes.
There is a category of people with a Mongoloid incision of the eyes (the type is characteristic of nationalities: Koreans, Uighurs, Kazakhs, Chinese and others). In the common people, the plastic surgery of the upper eyelids, with the aim of forming a decorative fold, is called sangapuri. Our many years of experience in carrying out such an operation allows us to state that the result obtained by us is stable throughout the subsequent time.
The main difference between the operation of sangapuri and conventional blepharoplasty is that the incision line is carried along the ciliary edge, which makes it possible to make the scars invisible in the future.
There is no special preparation for this operation, it is enough to hand over a small set of tests and consult a surgeon
The operation is performed under local anesthesia and lasts from 40 minutes to 1.5 hours so the recovery 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 sangapuri does not lead to impaired vision.
