EYE LIFTING OPERATION DETAILS:
- Excess skin on eyelids – Blefaroplasty
Eye lifting (a.k.a. Blefaroplasty) is a very effective treatment against saggy eyes. Recovery period is between one week and ten days. When performed with filling, the operation yields exceptional results.
- Droopy eyelid reconstruction (Ptosis)
An incision is made along the natural line of the upper eyelid to remove excess fat tissue, leaving the area tightened. If the eyebrows are low, it is advised to have the operation combined with eyebrow lifting. Preferable for eyelid plastic surgery.
- Fixing abnormal eyelid position
The most common version is entropion. The skin and eyelashes rubs against the kornea, causing irritation, pain and damage. If left untreated, kornea or even vision loss can happen. The treatment is the same with the Ptosis condition. The procedure is done with local anesthesia and the patient on their feet, which enables them to return home the same day. Due to inflamation and discoloration around the eyes, recovery can last for up to 7 to 10 days.
- Eyelid retraction
This condition can occur due to genetics, thyroid issues or after tumor removal or injury, causing the eyelid to retract. Although effective, botox application can lead to eye dryness and for this reason surgery is preferred. The levator muscle which causes the retraction is removed and the rounder than usual looking eye gets fixed.
