Scars of blepharoplasty
The postoperative of a blepharoplasty is bearable and its recovery, although uncomfortable because the eye area is always delicate, is relatively fast. The patient should be involved in the postoperative, devoting considerable time to the care and cleaning of the areas affected by the intervention.
The scars will be visible for a few weeks, but we insist, the better the area is cleaned faster the more scarring and healing. That is why it is very important that the patient follow the instructions of the medical team and perform these cures and cleanings daily, carefully and always avoiding the injury or remove the stitches.
How to promote healing
Among others, there are guidelines to follow that we all know more or less. It is worth noting the exposure to the sun and the use of full screen protective creams to avoid any complications.
From Clínica Granado Tiagonce we want to recommend the use of Trofolastin, a scar-reducing patches that prevent and reduce the formation of hypertrophic scars, recent and old and small keloids. Its outer surface is a microporous polyurethane membrane and the inner one is an acrylic adhesive film to facilitate its fixation to the skin. The effects are visible at 8/10 weeks of treatment. The adhered deposit should be kept until it starts to peel by itself, which usually occurs between day 5 and 7 after placement. They should not be removed before they start to peel off.
Depending on the type of scar and its age, the treatment can last up to 4-6 months. Consistency in application is very important. The longer the dressing is applied, the better the results. Trofolastin is a scaler and is water resistant, it is not necessary to remove it for daily cleaning. Can be used for both recent and old scars. It is important not to start using it until the wound is fully closed, once the stitches are removed and all scabs have been removed, then we can use Trofolastin.
