Blepharoplasty enhances the eye contour and makes you look younger.

About the treatment

Blepharoplasty is an aesthetic surgery treatment for the eyelids. It improves and rejuvenates the face by removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be used on both eyelids (upper and lower) or on all four eyelids at the same time

Before blepharoplasty, as before any aesthetic surgery, you have to have a consultation with your surgeon. This enables your surgeon to understand your needs and what you want, to carry out a medical examination – of your eyelids in particular – and to suggest the best solution for your case. Along with this, an ophthalmologic exam also has to be carried out.
Blepharoplasty is often conducted under local anaesthetic as an outpatient operation. For the upper eyelids, the procedure essentially consists of removing excess skin. For the lower eyelids, the procedure involves reducing the fatty build-up that forms the bags under the eyes. 

 

 

Avantages

Blepharoplasty corrects:

  • Heavy and drooping upper eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes

Blepharoplasty can be complemented by other procedures, such as lipostructuring, some facelift procedures, and botulinum toxin (Botox®) and hyaluronic acid injections.

Benefits

Blepharoplasty provides a long-term solution to facial imperfections. It also creates a more rested and relaxed face, giving a more radiant look to the marks that time can have on a person’s face. The final result is achieved some 3 to 6 months after the treatment, in which time, the tissues regain their suppleness and any scarring disappears.

Good to know

Following the procedure, the eyes and eyelids will feel sensitive, and oedemas and bruising can last for 1 to 2 weeks. Over time, scars from the blepharoplasty become almost invisible, as the incisions are made in the natural folds of the upper eyelids, beneath the eyebrows and inside the lower eyelids. 

Just as for any surgical procedure, some complications are possible, and for each patient, both the risks and benefits have to be considered. Detailed and personalised information will be given to you by your surgeon during your consultation.
