From the 3rd decade of life, the first signs of aging of the human face begin to appear. Gradually, in the upper eyelid and the side of the eye, the excess skin becomes more intense, creating a tired look. Dark circles and bags under the eyes begin to show, further exacerbating the tired look. The solution to this problem is blepharoplasty.
In the first days after the procedure there is swelling and bruising. The pain is mild, more of a tingle in the area, but subsides with a simple pain reliever. The swelling and ecchymosis gradually recede until the 2nd week.
In upper eyelid surgery, the incision is hidden in the natural crease of the upper eyelid.
In the lower eyelid, the incision is made just below the eyelashes or on the inner surface of the lower eyelid.
The incisions follow the normal fold of the skin and after a few days are barely visible at all.
