it was first described by Susruta. In the late 10th century, Arab surgeons described cauterization of the excess skin of the eyelids to restore a more youthful appearance. In the late 15th century, Celsus described the removal of the skin of the upper eyelid in his publication De re Medica. However, it was not until 1818 that the term blepharoplasty was coined by von Graefe to describe a case of eyelid reconstruction following cancer treatment.
In the 1950s, Costanares described in detail the anatomy of fatty eyelid herniations and the basis of modern blepharoplasty. McIndoe was the first to perform percutaneous eyelid fat resection, and many others have made contributions that further elucidate the relationship between lower eyelid fat and eyelid aging. By the end of the 20th century, significant changes began to emerge that promoted the benefits of fat preservation and redistribution rather than resection.
Therefore, a modern approach to blepharoplasty must take into account both the presence and absence of fat, as well as the role it plays in the aesthetics of the eyelids and the aging process.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is an operation to correct the eyelids and the area around the eyes by excising excess skin, fat deposits, and tightening muscles. Blepharoplasty allows you to achieve a rejuvenating effect, as well as change the natural incision and shape of the eyes (canthoplasty).
this operation allows you to eliminate flabbiness and sagging of the skin. It is also possible to hide excessively prominent lacrimal grooves. Operative correction of this type is assigned with a prominent transition between the lower eyelid and the cheek. The incision is made along the eyelash line, so after the end of the rehabilitation period and complete healing, the traces of the intervention are almost invisible.
indications are hernias, which serve as a weighting agent, due to which the lowering of the eyelid is observed. The incision is made on the outside of the skin area, which is subsequently hidden in a natural fold, so the trace of the intervention remains, but it is practically invisible.
the intervention includes work on the upper and lower eyelids. This operation is the most frequently chosen by plastic surgeons, therefore, with its help, it is possible to achieve the most complete and holistic result.
allows you to solve external problems by removing wen and hernias through special punctures on the mucosa. Scars do not remain as a result of the operation, since the skin is not affected, and the mucous membrane heals much faster and without consequences.
an indication for this type of intervention is the obvious asymmetry of the facial area around the eyes. Accordingly, on one side, areas of fat are eliminated with further transplantation to the opposite side.
is a method that allows you to change the natural shape of the eyes. Thanks to this operation, it is possible to create the effect of Asian eyes.
is prescribed to raise the outer corners of the eyes and then fix them in place.
Our medical consultants will take care of you during 1 year after the surgery. If you need any assistance, if you have questions, you can contact our staff.
On your way home, you can wear sunglasses to protect sensitive eyes from sun. In the first days after the operation, active physical activity is contraindicated - sports, swimming. You should walk to smoothen the swelling on the face.
It is necessary to exclude sudden movements. Let's say head tilts from side to side.
Make-up is not allowed. Do not drive a car, as your eyes may be watery and cloudy. Avoid alcohol intake after surgery or in the early postoperative period. It can lead to increased swelling. Smoking is not advisable - it can lead to a longer rehabilitation period.
It is strictly forbidden to remove the crusts on the seams by yourself.
Do not take too hot bath or shower. It is worth taking care of yourself from temperature changes. Therefore, give up the sauna, baths for at least a month. Avoid overly active sun. Sunbathing is not recommended. Contact lenses are not recommended. Try to sleep on 2-3 pillows to increase the angle. This will prevent excess swelling.

Complications are very rare after blepharoplasty. Among the rare, but possible complications, we can mention, among others, the risk of hematomas, infections, problems with the healing of scars. If a complication occurs, appropriate care is provided. In practice, most operations are performed without any problems and patients are very satisfied with the result. It is also very important that the patient adhere to the instructions of the surgeon. Stop smoking 1 month before and after the eyelid surgery will reduce all risks. Do not take aspirin within 10 days before and after surgery to reduce the risk of bruising.
The final result of blepharoplasty can be assessed in 1-2 months, when there are no signs of puffiness, the stitches heal and the skin colour of the eyelids is normalized.
The effect of Blepharoplasty lasts up to 12 years.
Most doctors do not recommend returning to training earlier than a month after the operation - the stitches should heal and tighten properly, the tone should return to the eyelids, and it is very important not to increase intraocular pressure.
On the 3-5th day after the operation, the stitches are removed. The skin in this area regenerates quickly, so there is no need to apply absorbable sutures.
Since the procedure is performed under general or local anesthesia, the patient does not experience any pain during the operation. In the first few days after the operation, slight pain may occur, but this can be treated well with conventional painkillers.
Transconjunctival blepharoplasty (sutureless) is an aesthetic surgical intervention on the eyelids. It is designed to relieve the patient of pronounced accumulations of adipose tissue under the eyes. The main advantage of this plastic surgery is that the incision is made along the eye shell behind the lower eyelid.
Oriental blepharoplasty - plastic surgery of the Asian (Eastern) eyelids, in which the epicanthus is removed.
If there are only bags, and if the patient's skin is young and elastic, then transconjunctival blepharoplasty is indicated, if it is also necessary to tighten the skin of the lower eyelids, then lower blepharoplasty is indicated.
Health insurance will not cover cosmetic Blepharoplasty, but your surgery may be covered if your Canthoplasty is done to correct a medical condition.
If you would like to get wider look together with getting rid of excess skin in your eyelids, you can undergo Canthoplasty together with Blepharoplasty. Also, doctor can recommend doing a nano-fat injection to smoothen the skin around eyes.
The operation does not require a long period of rehabilitation: after 7-10 days, patients return to their usual way of life. Within one month after blepharoplasty, it is recommended to limit reading books, watching TV, and working at a computer.
After the upper blepharoplasty, you can sunbathe in a few days, after the lower one, it is better to refrain from sunburn for up to 2 months. It is also necessary to use sunscreen so that the eyelid area is not pigmented.
You can do eye makeup after removing the stitches, after 3-5 days.
Scars take place only after upper blepharoplasty operation, on a moving eyelid. The scars after lower Blepharoplasty are not visible as they situated under lower lashes. Tissue healing takes place in stages. In the first week, there is swelling and discoloration of the tissues (blue and red). A month after the operation, new connective tissue is being formed at the site of the incisions. It looks like a reddish scar. Over the next months, the scars gradually lighten and after 2-2.5 months they become barely noticeable.
The rehabilitation period lasts from 7 to 10 days, with the first three days being considered the most critical. On these days, the patient may feel pain, dry eyes, severe swelling, bruising. The mucous membrane is irritated, visual impairment is possible. For 3-6 days, the surgeon removes the stitches, and swelling and bruising go away after 14-20 days. The skin in this area regenerates quickly, so there is no need to apply absorbable sutures. After removing the stitches, the patient can go to work. It depends on his type of activity. During the recovery period, it is necessary to follow the doctor's recommendations: do not engage in active sports, do not bend over, avoid lifting weights. Sleep on 2 pillows to increase the angle of the body. After 2 weeks, the borders of the sutures become less noticeable, redness and possible swelling disappear. Avoid alcohol and smoking for at least the first 2 weeks after surgery. Don't put on eye makeup until the stitches have healed. After 3-4 weeks, the scars become invisible and take on the colour of the skin.
Epicanthoplasty - performed on the inner corner of the eye, most often prescribed for medical reasons or, if the patient wishes, to correct the Asian eye shape.
Lateral Canthoplasty is performed on the outer corner of the eye, it is a more popular type of this operation and involves the correction of the canthus.
Cantopexy is a surgical operation to lift the lateral corners of the eyes. It allows you to eliminate aesthetic imperfections, correct the shape of the eyelid and restore the eye shape that the patient had in her/his youth. This operation can be combined with blepharoplasty, facelift, lipofilling.
Blepharoplasty removes excess skin from the lower or upper eyelid without changing the shape or size of the eye. Cantoplasty is sometimes performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty. Sometimes canthoplasty is performed to correct an unattractive position of the lower eyelid as a result of trauma or poorly performed blepharoplasty. Cantoplasty can also be performed along with cosmetic procedures such as an eyebrow lift or a mid-face lift.
Cantopexy is a simpler procedure than cantoplasty and does not require cutting or detaching the muscles or the lateral canthal tendon. Cantopexy tightens the outer corner of the eye at the junction of the eyelids, restoring a young and raised eye. Cantopexy is often combined with blepharoplasty. Like cantoplasty, it helps to make the eyes look younger, but it doesn't actually lift the eye or make it tilt.
