Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates sagging or drooping eyes. It helps remove eye bags and excess skin from around the eyelids to eliminate vision problems or simply to remove the signs of aging.
Over time, our eye muscles weaken, causing the eyelids to stretch and gather skin and fat around the eyelids. This can lead to droopy eyelids, sagging eyebrows, and the development of eye bags. It is also a key cause of reduced peripheral vision as you age.
Other factors that may contribute to droopy eyelids include congenital issues, birth defects, injuries, and diseases such as diabetes, styes, or strokes.
Our blepharoplasty procedures are performed by the very capable Dr. Juan David Londoño at the Treasury Operating Rooms. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and lasts approximately 1 ⅕ -3 hours.
Why Do Drooping Eyelids Occur?
- Ptosis or the excess drooping on the upper eyelid, makes it reach lower than it should be.
- Dermatochalasis or an excess of skin on the upper lid leads to a drooping eyelid.
Generally, drooping eyelids can be a combination of both these conditions.
How Long Does Eyelid Surgery Last?
The blepharoplasty procedure can take around 1 ⅕ to 3 1⁄5 hours, depending on the complexity of your case and the number of eyelids that need intervention. Prior to surgery, patients are administered local or general anesthesia. Dr. Juan David Londoño personally handles all the procedures at the exclusive Treasury Operating Rooms at the El Tesoro Medical Tower in Medellín, Colombia.
Blepharoplasty will remove the excess skin and accumulated fat around your eyelids to give you a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance.
Blepharoplasty: More Than Cosmetic Surgery, A Break For Your Look
Droopy eyelids result from ptosis, dermatochalasis, or a combination of both. Therefore, you will be provided with the most appropriate blepharoplasty treatment accordingly.
- A lower blepharoplasty will target the lower eyelids, removing excess skin and eye bags forming under your eyes. This also helps improve the marks of dark circle formation.
- An upper blepharoplasty will target the upper eyelids, removing any excess skin and eyebags formed as a result of deposited fat around the natural crease of your eyes for a rejuvenated, harmonious appearance.
In some cases, you may be recommended a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, a surgery that is performed through the inside of the eyelids using very precise cutting so it does not leave any visible scars after recovery.
Before we proceed with your treatment, you should schedule an initial evaluation appointment with us so we can determine the optimum techniques and methods according to your unique case and provide you with a quote accordingly.
