Eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery is a procedure that surgically improves their appearance and thus rejuvenates eyes and face. This treatment can affect the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Eyelid surgery is a procedure most often chosen by patients who want to rejuvenate the appearance of their face.

Blepharoplasty is a procedure performed under general or local anesthesia lasting one to two hours. During surgery, the surgeon makes small incisions and then cuts out problematic excess skin. You do not have to worry about scars, because they are hidden in the natural crease of the eyelid.

Please inform your doctor about all medications you are taking and complaints during your medical consultation. All required tests should be performed as prescribed by the physician prior to surgery. It is very important to stop smoking and drinking alcohol before surgery because these substances have a significant negative effect on wound healing. We recommend giving up alcohol and cigarettes for as long as possible before and after the procedure to avoid postoperative scars.

For the first week, avoid any contact with your eyes – do not rub, touch or strain your eyes. Makeup can be applied after 7-10 days after removing the stitches. Patients should avoid excessive exercise for at least a month and limit facial tanning.

During the first weeks after the surgery, avoid physical exertion or heavy lifting, as well as sauna visits, bathing and sunbathing. It is also worth giving up drinking and smoking nicotine-containing products as long as possible. This is important because of the proper healing of wounds after surgery and reducing the likelihood of scars.

People struggling with comorbidities or other health problems must inform their physician during the first qualification consultation. Before the procedure, perform all tests as prescribed by the doctor and follow all recommendations before and after the procedure.

What can you do to minimize swelling or bruising?

Depending on the procedure, it may be a good idea to sleep in a tilted position (not horizontal) for one week after the procedure to minimize the accumulation of fluid on your face and eyelids. Follow the instructions you will receive on preparing and serving cold and warm compresses. They will not only reduce bruising and swelling, but also maximize and promote healing. Avoid elevated blood pressure, limit caffeine intake, excessive physical exertion, and avoid stress.
