A look that is always bright and young

Restoring a fresh, young and natural look is possible with a simple non-invasive procedure.
This may be why blepharoplasty is one of the most requested rejuvenation procedures in the world, capable of giving a pleasant harmony to the eyelid-eyebrow complex.
Aging often reduces the elasticity of the skin causing unsightly excess skin.
Even an incorrect lifestyle or an individual predisposition can cause an excess of liquids and adipose tissue.
Blepharoplasty helps restore eyelid youth and give a natural, non-burdened look, eliminating annoying swellings that can occur on both the upper and lower eyelids.

The intervention

Blepharoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia, more rarely with the addition of sedation. This also depends on the type of surgery, which can be performed on the upper, lower or both eyelids and therefore involves different approaches.
Upper blepharoplasty surgery allows you to remove an ellipse of skin and excess fat through an incision in the upper eyelid crease.
In this way the scar is invisible to the open eye. In some cases it is also possible to obtain the "mascara" effect, by slightly curving the eyelash line outwards.

In lower blepharoplasty you can proceed with two techniques.
It is possible to eliminate the excess adipose tissue (as in the case of bags) by means of a linear incision a few millimeters from the lower ciliary margin, almost invisible, or with a transconjunctival technique, which does not involve external cuts but only one small cut in the conjunctiva, all inner eyelid (more suitable technique in young patients who do not have excess skin but only bags).
In the post-operative period, the use of eye drops and correct eye hygiene are recommended.
The stitches will be removed after 4-5 days and any bruising and swelling will disappear completely in 7-15 days.
