Eyelid surgery
Madrid | Zurich

The eyelid intervention enhances the most striking feature: the eyes. Usually, the ageing process starts around the eyes, mainly because of the area´s constant movement, thin skin and anatomical variations. Blepharoplasty minimises the ageing signs in a fast, safe manner with immediate results.

Depending on the patient´s needs, a lower or upper blepharoplasty, or both (full intervention) might be performed. The surgery may involve the removal of excess skin, fat, part of the muscle and/or eye bags.

Our patients´ most common reasons to undergo a blepharoplasty are: tired eyes, swelling, eye bags, difficulty to read or to work in front of a screen. After the intervention, patients generally ask themselves “Why didn´t I do it before?”

Dr. Richard Fakin extensive experience and specialized knowledge of the facial three-dimensional architecture back his professional commitment to delivering natural and long-lasting results.

What blepharoplasty technique is best for each patient?

Dermis type, age and anatomical measurements are the key factors when deciding which eyelid surgery is the most appropriate for each patient. Blepharoplasty removes the excess skin, fat, eye bags and/or wrinkles of the upper and lower eyelids. In every case, scars remain invisible whether a transcutaneous (exterior) or transconjunctival (interior) incision is performed.

How are blepharoplasty surgeries performed?

Generally, local anaesthesia is applied. Sedation (by intravenous line) can also be used if the extent of the surgery or the patient require it, usually during a lower blepharoplasty. Recovery time is fast, and patients are fit to go back to their daily activities soon after surgery.

How long do the blepharoplasty results last and what are the additional procedures?

This surgery has a very high success rate and results last for a period of about 8 to 12 years. However, it is important to advise that the dermis ageing process will continue after the intervention, though it can be slowed down by using the correct skin care and sun protection products, as well as aesthetic medicine procedures.

Blepharoplasty, combined with facial surgeries such as facial fat graft, face and neck lift or rhinoplasty, is a powerful technique of a global facial rejuvenation.
