What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical technique to reduce the skin of the eyelids and eye bags.
How it is performed?
It is usually done with local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. The upper eyelid surgery is performed through an incision along the eyelid fold, avoiding visible scars. The lower eyelid surgery to reduce the bags can be performed through an internal incision through the conjunctiva without scarring if there is no large excess skin. If there is, an external skin incision can be made following the natural lines of the eyelid below the eyelashes.
Results that can be expected.
Nowadays very good results are achieved both functionally and aesthetically.
