Blepharoplasty – cosmetic eyelid surgery
In our 40-ies, we sometimes start noticing fatigue on the face. If this tired appearance doesn’t disappear even after a longer period of rest, the cause of this can be found in sagging or swollen eyelids or in fatty pads that have suddenly appeared below the eyes.
Physiological ageing process doesn’t affect everybody in the same way. Some of us are more prone to ageing, maybe because of our facial features, lifestyle or genetic base. With time, the skin looses its elasticity and consistency, especially in the area of eyelids where it is very thin. The eyelids change their appearance, slowly but surely, by forming excess skin bags, furrows and fatty pads, making the face look tired and old.
Excess skin and fatty pads on the eyelids can be removed by cosmetic surgery procedure – blepharoplasty. Excess skin and fatty pads can be removed from upper and lower eyelids. Cosmetic treatments, products or massages cannot help in these cases.
Blepharoplasty is considered as minor and very efficient operation. Performed by the experienced surgeon, it doesn’t carry any higher risk for the patient. Excess skin and fatty pads are removed following the precise drawing that the surgeon made prior to the operation. During the preoperative preparation, Dr Toncic carefully makes a drawing on the eyelids, in order to remove the optimal amount of skin and fatty pads. This is the point where Dr Toncic’s perfectionism and an eye for the detail are best shown. Beside some others cosmetic surgery operations, this operation also requires surgeon’s sense of proportion and shaping.
In our clinic we use radio surgery for the cosmetic correction of the eyelids, because this technology enables the surgeon to make very precise incision without damaging the surrounding tissue. This gives optimal aesthetic effect and quick patient’s recovery. In order to achieve the best aesthetic effect possible, we use sutures that are as thin as a human hair. We put the sutures below the skin layer, so there are no visible stitches. The incision is placed in the natural creases of the skin. The final result of the cosmetic eyelid surgery is obvious rejuvenation. The eyes look younger and bigger, and the natural beauty of the patient’s eyes become more noticeable.
Dr Toncic and his medical team pay special attention not to make any unwanted creases or scars on the patient’s skin.
Blehpharoplasty is often performed combined with some other cosmetic surgery procedures. Some of them are face lift, which is just like the cosmetic eyelid surgery, so called facial rejuvenation procedure.
In our clinic, we can combine blepharoplasty with other cosmetic surgery operations like rhinoplasty, breast enlargement, etc.
