Who is the ideal candidate for Blepharoplasty?
There are a few things to keep in mind when considering Blepharoplasty surgery:
- It is an operation for eye bags and will not solve other problems such as crow’s feet and sunken eyebrows.
- The eyelids and fatty deposits have a tendency to bleed, so the operation requires great care and delicacy.
- If too much skin is removed, it can prevent the eye from closing properly, leading to dryness and irritation of the eyeball.
This is why it is important to consult with a specialist about your medical history as well as your expectations from the surgery before undergoing the procedure. At Clinica Adcure, our team of experts will give you an expert evaluation as to whether this is the right surgery for you.
After the operation, eye drops should be applied every four hours, and an antibiotic eye ointment should be used before going to bed. The stitches can come out about a week after surgery. Once the stitches have been removed, the area should be massaged with a wound-healing cream. Conjunctivitis can sometimes occur as a side-effect of the operation, but this can be avoided through the regular application of eye drops and antibiotic cream.
When going outdoors, the eyes should be protected from sunlight by a pair of large, high UV protection sunglasses. The area should also be treated regularly with a moisturizing cream to prevent dryness and irritation during the healing process.
Results will be visible in two to three weeks after the intervention when the bruising and swelling have gone down.
