Brow Droop and Under-Eye Surgery
The Blepharoplasty is a surgical technique that corrects the skin excess and fat bags that grant an aging look to the eye area. It may be done at any age, yet as one ages the relaxation of the tissues is more accentuated.
It is a fast surgery with an easy post-surgery time and last longing results. This technique may be done alone or together with other aesthetic surgical techniques aiming to eliminate facial wrinkles or flabbiness.
Normally, blepharoplasty is done with local anesthesia and sedation, and patient remains awake though sedate. In some cases, if it is necessary it may be used general anesthesia.
Surgery to brow drop consists in removing the skin excess and restore the normal tension of the muscle. If necessary, it is also removed fat bags.
The under-eye bags surgery may be done in two different ways:
1st – externally: by a small incision under the eyelids, from which fat bags are taken out, closing with fine suture that will serve also as a skin and orbicular muscle tensor.
2nd – internally: by a small incision inside the bag, without external wound, where the fat is taken out by an internal mucous. It doesn’t need suture and this tissue closes really well on itself. The duration of the surgery is around one hour.
After the surgery the patient rests for 24 hours and may return to its daily life between the 5th and the 7th day after the surgery.
When signs facial of tiredness and aging disappear, face seems younger and healthier and the eyes seem bigger.
