When we talk about blepharoplasty , also known as eyelid surgery , we refer to cosmetic surgery of the eyelids. Obviously it will depend on which eyelids we must intervene it is a different intervention. In the case of the upper eyelids it is possible to eliminate excess skin and fat tissue while in the lower eyelids, only the fat bags are removed .

It is a surgery that gives very good results, very superior results. The face seems rejuvenated without causing drastic changes in the image and without visible scars. In addition, unlike other cosmetic surgeries such as face lift, blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is less invasive and has a shorter and more pleasant postoperative period.

Postoperative blepharoplasty

As he announced, the postoperative period of this eyelid surgery is very short and does not require admission since, generally, they are only performed under local anesthesia , (unless for medical reasons the general anesthesia is necessary) and, in many cases, the time. Once the intervention is done, the eyes will be uncovered.

After a blepharoplasty, the first week may be a small swelling and in some cases small bruises. Therefore, during this time you should apply local cold several times a day and avoid physical effort. It is also necessary to know that if points have been used in surgery, they should be removed between four and seven days after the intervention, depending in all cases on the evolution of the patient.
