Blepharoplasty

The blepharoplasty is a procedure, which involves correction of the age-related changes of eyelids, changings of the eyes form or its shape. It administrates either under general or local anesthesia. Its duration is from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

The skin of eyelids is the thinnest in whole body. It is a subject of gravitation influence, as is the whole body. In course of time, a skin loses elasticity, stretches and "hangs" over eyes. It results in forming of "sacks under eyes", "sad" appearance and can cause violation of sharpness of the sight. It should be remembered that upper or lower lid are the components of the periorbital area and does not get older in isolated, that stipulates the necessity of taking into a consideration of the state of all parts of this localization during the procedures sent to the correction of the age-related changes.

There are upper and lower types of a blepharoplasty.

The upper blepharoplasty administrates to provide the removal of true extra skin, correction of “completeness”, forming the fold of upper lid once it is unexpressed, reshaping of the ciliary margin.

The incision is in area of a fold of the lid that makes the scar unnoticeable. The procedure involves removing out extra skin, at a necessity – the resection of stripe of the circular muscle of the eye and retro septal fat. Often the correction of "overhanding" of upper lid accompanied by the frontotemporal lifting (lifting of upper one-third face).

The lower blepharoplasty administrates with the purpose to correct the age-related changes of lower eyelids what appeared in the form of sulcus or folds of a skin, saccular formations of the relaxed fabrics, fatty hernia.

This operative intervention conducts by either transconjunctival or transcutaneous access (at presence of extra skin of lower lid). Both incisions are unnoticeable, that improves the cosmetic effect of this procedure considerably.

During the plastic of eyelids, it is necessary to take into account the types of gravitational changes of periorbital area:

  • The 1st type – minimum of changers in the area of the lower lid;
  • The 2nd type – to changers of I type it includes some indications of palpebro check changers;
  • The 3rd type – gravitation ptosis of lower lid under ab edge of the orbit, laps of palpebro check level, deepening of nasolabial folds and fating of zygomatic buttress;
  • The 4th type – maximum signs of aging of the periorbital area, characterizes by the presence of extra skin, fatty hernia, sharply expressed of lacrimal sulcus of lacrimal bone and palpebro check sulcus, deep nasolabial folds.

Once there either the 1st or the 2nd types, it is possible to administrate the isolated upper or / and lower blepharoplasty. While at the 3rd or the 4th types, there to achieve of the optimal and proof cosmetic result it is necessary to lift the middle part of the face and to compensate the volume of zygomatic buttress. It contingently a considerable weakening of the skin of eyelids, weakness of circular muscle of an eye, registered ptosis (below than edge of an orbit), change of sharpness of a sight.

The blepharoplasty gives the protracted cosmetic result that shows up already in two weeks (once swells and hematomas disappeared), results in the rejuvenation of the periorbital area and improvement of integral perception of a face.
