Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a specialised surgical technique used to correct the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. During the procedure, excess skin and fat around the eyes is removed, which can significantly contribute to rejuvenating the look and restoring facial vitality lost over time. Eyelid reshaping achieves a more youthful and refreshed appearance, eliminating the visual fatigue and heaviness that is often associated with excess skin in the eye region.

The length of the surgery can vary greatly from case to case, but rarely exceeds 45-60 minutes. Our specialised plastic surgeons perform a detailed analysis of the eyelid structure and surrounding skin to customise the procedure according to the patient’s individual needs and expectations. In addition, advanced and precise techniques are used to ensure optimal results and the quickest and most comfortable recovery possible for the patient.

After surgery, a period of rest and recovery is recommended to allow the tissues to heal properly. During this time, the patient may experience swelling and bruising around the eyes, which will gradually decrease as the healing process progresses. Aftercare includes the application of cold compresses to reduce swelling and the prescription of medication to control discomfort and prevent infection. Regular check-ups with the surgeon are essential to monitor the progress of the recovery and ensure that the final results are as desired.

It is important to note that blepharoplasty is a surgery that requires the skill and experience of a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. Luckily, at Clínica Oftalmológica Castanera we have the expert hands of Dr. Hugo González Valdivia, an expert in this type of intervention.

The ideal candidates for blepharoplasty are those with excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids, which can cause a tired and aged appearance. Patients should also have realistic expectations and understand the possible results and limitations of the procedure before undergoing surgery.

In summary, blepharoplasty is an effective and quick recovery time procedure that can significantly rejuvenate facial appearance by removing excess skin and fat around the eyes.However, it is crucial to seek the guidance and advice of an experienced plastic surgeon to assess the suitability of the treatment and to ensure natural and harmonious aesthetic results.
