Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and hernias on the upper and / or lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery significantly reduces the number of wrinkles, allows you to get rid of puffiness around the eyes. Statistically, more often, eyelid surgery is performed for the purpose of rejuvenation, but if desired, using blepharoplasty, you can correct the shape or cut of the eyes, for example, in order to Europeanize the appearance.
INDICATIONS FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY Such age-related changes as heaviness and overhanging of the upper eyelids, “sad look”, morning edema, bags under the eyes are indications for surgery, therapeutic methods, unfortunately, it is impossible to get rid of them.
AGE Blepharoplasty is most in demand among patients aged 35 to 60 years. However, if the indications for surgery appeared earlier, for example, due to the peculiarities of the structure of the face, then you should not postpone it, since young patients (up to 35 years old) can be offered a lighter option - transconjunctive blepharoplasty (without an external incision). For mature patients (over 60 years old), blepharoplasty can also be recommended and, in the absence of contraindications, is successfully performed.

You also need to take into account that it is not advisable to wear contact lenses for a month after the operation, so it is advisable to choose comfortable glasses in advance.

DURATION OF THE SURGERY Blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids lasts 40 - 60 minutes, blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids 60 - 80 minutes. If the plastic surgery of the upper and lower eyelids is performed simultaneously, then the duration of the operation is about 2 hours.
