Blepharoplasty (Baggy Eyes)
Blepharoplasty surgery is one of the very common procedures in cosmetic surgery.
Removing the eye bag (baggy lower eyelids) is a necessity for almost everyone older than 40 years of age. The procedures of Blepharoplasty surgery have become very safe, very fast and cost effective. The new and latest technique is removing the fat from inside, so there is no skin incision, but incision from the conjunctiva. This technique is known as TRANSCONJUNCTIVAL BLEPHAROPLASTY (TCB). Usually, there is no bleeding, very fast (30-45 minutes for both eyelids) and there is very little bruising after the procedures. Good compression is strongly suggested after the procedures. To make the skin tighter, Transconjunctional Blepharoplasty is combined with LASER RESURFACING on the lower lids. This procedure is also fast, but after the procedure, one should wear a bandage for about 1 week. Then the skin looks a rosy-red but gradually decreases after 2-4 months. There are many benefits of Eyelift or Eyelid Aging Surgery. The skin will be tighter, removing all the fine wrinkles around eyes.
For older people, and Asian people( Oriental lid) with small upper lids, an UPPERLID BLEPHAROPLASTY is undertaken.

This is possible by removing the fat, removing the excess skin and tightening the muscle to the skin.This can be done also with a CO2 laser, so the procedures will be faster, with very little blood loss, less post-surgery discomfort and better healing process
