What is blepharoplasty / Upper eyelid surgery?

Blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery, is a safe and effective solution for those facing the problem of drooping eyelid skin, which can affect not only the aesthetic appearance but also the functionality of vision.

Why is upper eyelid surgery the right solution for you?

Drooping skin of the upper eyelids can give a tired and older appearance to the face, and in some cases, even limit the field of vision. Blepharoplasty allows you to permanently resolve this issue, with effects that can last up to 15 years.

Preparation and Procedure

Preparation for upper eyelid surgery

Before the surgery, our team will thoroughly analyze your condition and, using specialized devices, precisely determine how much skin needs to be removed. It’s important to avoid medications that can affect blood clotting, such as aspirin and ibuprofen.

The procedure for upper eyelid surgery

The surgery is performed under local anesthesia, where excess skin and fat tissue are carefully removed. An incision is made along the natural crease of the eyelid, making the scar almost invisible. The procedure typically lasts up to one hour, and results are visible within a few days, with final effects achieved about three weeks after the surgery.

Recovery after upper eyelid surgery?

Recovery after blepharoplasty involves a period of rest, avoiding strenuous activities, and following the doctor’s recommendations for caring for the operated areas. After surgery, mild swelling, bruising, and a feeling of tightness in the eyelid area are possible, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days to weeks. The results of blepharoplasty are usually long-lasting, giving a person a fresher and more rested appearance.

Risks after upper eyelid surgery?

As with any surgery, there are risks of bleeding, infection, thrombosis, and reactions to anesthesia with upper eyelid surgery.

Complications are extremely rare when the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon. However, some patients may experience dry and irritated eyes, difficulty closing their eyelids, and temporary vision problems.
