Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)


This aesthetic procedure in the lower and / or higher eyelids can rejuvenate your look. Blepharoplasty will permanently erase a wrinkled gaze, droopy eyelids or bags under the eyes without posing any risk to your eyesight.

The upper eyelids:

Skin and muscle are excised to correct a tired look. Internal fat pockets are often reduced by ensuring not too much excess fat is removed and avoiding hollowing out and therefore, ageing, the eyes.

The lower eyelids:

Skin is excised and fat is re-draped, so as to fill the hollow just below the eyelid. If all four - upper and lower - eyelids are operated on simultaneously, your eyelid surgery will always be preceded by a thorough examination of your sight by a specialist.

 

HOW DOES THE INTERVENTION GO?


Your blepharoplasty can be performed in a single day, under either local or general anaesthesia.

POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS


Every surgical procedure can involve a certain amount of risk and complications that the patient must accept; your plastic surgeon will make it his or her duty to reduce the rate of occurrence by choosing the technique best suited to your medical situation. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthesis infections and poor healing, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
