Bepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

General description
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a type of plastic surgery to improve your wellness by removing excess fat, muscle and skin form upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can correct drooping upper eyelids sagging in lower ones that make older people look more tired that they really are and that can also compromise eyesight.

There are certain medical conditions that make eyelid surgery more risky: thyroid problems such as hypothyroidism or Graves disease, high blood pressure, cardiovascular problems and diabetes, among others.

Ideal candidates for this procedure are those people who are healthy, psychologically stable and realistic about their expectations.

Technical description
Procedure – Like in any other wellness program that involves surgery, there are some risks involved. Nevertheless, these risks can be minimized if you consult a plastic surgeon and follow his recommendations accordingly. Minor complications can be inflammation and double or blurry vision. After this cosmetic surgery, some patients might experience temporary difficulty to close their eyes while sleeping. Another complication, rare if a good physician was involved, is ectropion or eyelid eversion, that is, the eyelid is turned outwards.

The first consultation is extremely important. Your physician should have a complete record of your medical background. Be honest; mention all your diseases, allergies, medicine intake or tobacco consumption. Discuss your expectations and do not hesitate to ask when in doubt.

The plastic surgeon will explain all surgical procedures, the type of anesthesia needed and the costs. Blepharoplasty is generally performed with local anesthesia and oral or endovenous sedation, though some doctors prefer general anesthesia.



Total cost will vary according to individual needs.
