Blepharoplasty – Eye lid surgery
Blepharoplasty is the procedure used to remove excessive eyelid skin, with or without orbital fat (reducing puffiness around the eyes), for either functional or cosmetic indications. It is the first-choice procedure to treat eye lid deformities, at any age, and to treat some of the aging signs located in the eye lids or around the eyes.
It is the most common aesthetic facial procedure performed. It can achieve very good results.
Blepharoplasty can be performed in the upper or lower eyelid or in both. It can be done alone or in association with other surgeries as facelift, eyebrow lift or rhinoplasty.
The surgical procedure takes 1 to 2H.
It is performed under sedation and local anaesthesia.
