Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery

It is not sufficient just to remove the excess skin! You also need to reduce or remove the small fatty masses that weigh down the upper eyelids or produce the distinctive “pockets” under the eyes.

 

UPPER BLEPHAROPLASTY

A procedure often oversimplified:

Blépharoplastie

This often leaves a fold drooping down outside the eyelids.

Ideal operation:

Blépharoplastie

With the excess fat removed, the scar is left in the fold of the eyelid.

 

LOWER BLEPHAROPLASTY and treatment of pockets under the eyes

Blépharoplastie

The scar, just under the lashes, will be virtually invisible.

  • A few small stitches will be removed after 10 days.
  • Soluble stitches may be used.

 

NB: It is often worth carrying out a lower blepharoplasty at the same time as an upper blepharoplasty to balance the tension between the top and bottom and not alter the patient’s look.

An upper or lower blepharoplasty takes less than one hour. Surgery to all four eyelids will take 2 hours. A week is often enough to become presentable again after an upper blepharoplasty. It takes longer for the lower lid, because the small haematomas drains more slowly (more or less 2 weeks).
