Lower Blepharoplasty is the appropriate method for a more relaxed and youthful look. The way of life, nutrition, stress, constant fatigue and the passage of time leave their marks on the skin. Even young people have dark circles and “bags” under their eyes, making them look much older and tired.
The first signs of continuous fatigue are visible mainly on the face and eyes.
It is necessary for the surgeon to compare photos of the patient’s younger age with the current ones.
Lower Blepharoplasty can be done with local anesthesia or sedation. The patient can return home the same day, 2-3 hours after the surgery, as no special treatment is required.
Initially, the surgical design of the area is made in an upright position. The incisions are made just below the lashes and extend outwardly and below alongside the wrinkles of the outer, lower eyelid. Excess intraocular fat is removed under the muscle clamp, and then the excess skin is removed. It is intended to suture the muscle and skin so the surgeon can avoid the downward tendency of the skin and stickers on the outside. The duration of the surgery lasts about 60 minutes.
Blepharoplasty is very often associated with Lipoplasty, which is the transfer of fat to the lower eyelids. Lipoplasty helps to avoid tired eyes after a lower blepharoplasty and also restores the volume of the cheekbones, one of the main reasons for fatigue image. Aggressive techniques for removing large amounts of intracranial fat have been left.
Lower Blepharoplasty can also be combined with Upper Blepharoplasty and ridge, with a mini and total facelift.
In many cases, it is necessary to pass through the inside of the eyelids in order to remove the extra fat and then remove the extra skin with a smaller incision. In this case, the lower eyelid muscle is not injured.
The possible side effects or complications of Lower Blepharoplasty are:
With proper surgical technique and postoperative monitoring, the risk of complications is almost zero. The final outcome of surgery is evaluated after 6-9 months and any minor discomfort can be corrected by local anesthesia.
It should be made clear that the patient should not underestimate the possible complications of Lower Blepharoplasty and follow doctor’s instructions.
Complications in plastic surgery operations are not common but it is necessary to be aware of them at the first appointment.
