Blepharoplasty - Eyelid Surgery in Tunisia
In reality, anti-aging care creams and facial gymnastics exercises are insufficient to make the look more open and more cheerful. Only blepharoplasty can remove certain hereditary defects or defects due to old age.
What is Blepharoplasty?
"Cosmetic surgery of the eyelids", eliminates the signs of aging that makes the eyelids weigh down and improves the aesthetic defects responsible for the tired or even puffy appearance of the eyes with the help of a lasting correction of two kinds of problems that can coexist.
Blepharoplasty, consists in rejuvenating the tired look or swollen eyes that can result from the presence of bags of greasy origin on the inner part of the upper eyelids or under the lower eyelids.
These excess skin and fat, can be removed surgically.
On the upper eyelids, aging is caused by the origin the classic appearance "in cap" which remains the first complaint of a woman who can no longer put on makeup.
The lower eyelids, are victims of an excess of skin and especially fat at the origin of the classic "bags under the eyes".
The cosmetic surgeon, carries out medical photographs and an ophthalmological check up that includes an examination of the lacrimal function.
A blood testing is carried out in accordance with the prescriptions.
It is recommended that the patient stops smoking a month before and after the operation as well as any medication containing aspirin during the 10 days preceding the surgery.
Depending on the number of eyelids treated, 2 or 4 eyelids, the blepharoplasty operation lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, under local or sometimes general anesthesia as part of an outpatient stay in the clinic.
The scar, is perfectly hidden in the upper palpebral fold.
The upper blepharoplasties, removes the sagging skin tending to weigh down the look and gives an eye the impression of falling.
Lower blepharoplasties, consists in removing the responsible fat from the bags under the eyes with the help of a transconjunctival incision without visible scarring in order to remove only the responsible fat from the "bags" under the eyes.
In some cases, we can see a relaxation of the orbicular muscle of the eyelids which calls for the practice of a re-tensioning of this muscle by fixing it to the surface of the temporal muscle.
Edema and bruises, resolve on average after 10 days.
For a few days, the eyes will be more sensitive to light and tear more, that’s why you must wear sunglasses.
Continuing reading and driving is allowed after 2 days.
The patient can put on light makeup after 8 days.
The scars will be red and then pinkish and gradually fade.
The result of a cosmetic surgery of the eyelids which would be definitive after 6 months, is stable over time. Except in the case of a major weight variation, fatty pockets rarely recur after a lower blepharoplasty.
On the other hand, the aging of the upper part of the face tends, 10 years after a first surgery, to recreate a skin excess on the upper eyelid.
Like any surgery, the blepharoplasty operation can involve certain complications that remain exceptional. These are:
Infection in the form of pink eye,
A hematoma that may require surgical evacuation.
