Eye contour is one of the areas of the face where the signs of ageing are most visible. But what happens to the tissues in this area over time? The skin loses elasticity and facial muscles weaken, causing the upper eyelids to relax and fall out. In the lower eyelids, on the other hand, fat can accumulate, that is the main cause of the formation of bags under the eyes.

The consequences are mainly aesthetic: the glance seems tired, dull, that does not reflect the mood of the woman generating dissatisfaction and insecurity.

Blepharoplasty comes to help, it is a surgery that affects the tissues of the eyelids, eliminates blemishes and makes the skin of the eyes as smooth as before. The eyes acquire new vitality and their glance a new youth.

The procedure

The surgery is preceded by the first visit where I make sure my patient is in good health, listen to her wishes and identify the achievable results. The surgery takes from one to three hours depending on whether the lower eyelids, upper eyelids or both are affected.

In the case of the upper eyelid I make a small incision following its natural fold, separate the underlying tissue from the skin and remove or reposition the adipose tissue. At this point, I stretch the skin in order to eliminate or reduce wrinkles and finally close the incision. For the lower eyelid, only the position of the incision that affects the area near the lashes changes.

At the end of the operation, bruises and swelling may appear, a completely natural and temporary phenomenon, after a few days the situation returns to normal. Seven days after the operation I will remove the stitches: the scars will fade with time until they become very small white lines.

For about two weeks it is important to rest, avoid physical strain and bending down or forward. A further visit allows me to verify the patient's complete recovery. And the result of all this? Smoother skin around the eyes for a more toned and youthful face.
