A blepharoplasty is an aesthetic intervention that seeks to improve a persons look, returning the lost brightness. Depending on the flaws to be corrected, the surgeon chooses one option or the other. The upper blepharoplasty removes the localised skin excess on the upper eyelids that causes a tired appearance and, occasionally, interferes with the patients vision. In patients with both of these flaws, a complete blepharoplasty can be performed, combining both techniques. The postoperative period of these two is very similar.
A blepharoplasty is an intervention with definite and favourable results in most of the cases, that doesn’t modify the shape of the eyes, but improves their appearance. This surgery is rarely done on very young people, as the majority of the cases the corrections are due to flaws built up over the years.
