Blepharoplasty surgery in Malaga

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, aims to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes. Patients often seek this procedure to address a tired-looking gaze or discomfort caused by the excess skin of the upper eyelid drooping over the lashes. This technique involves removing excess skin and fat that can be present in both the upper and lower eyelids.

In some cases, Dr. Javier Collado combines this procedure with a canthoplasty or cantopexy to correct the eye shape or prevent deformities. Eyelid surgery is typically performed from the age of thirty onwards. However, it’s also done in many cases on much younger patients, as these fat deposits, known as bags, often have a noticeable hereditary component.

Aesthetic and blepharoplasty surgery in Malaga

The ideal patient is one in good physical health whose primary goal is to enhance facial expression and aesthetics. Blepharoplasty corrects the appearance of droopy eyelids and puffiness under the eyes. This aesthetic surgery is not suitable for individuals with cardiovascular diseases, thyroid disorders, insufficient tear production, or diabetes.

The removal of fat bags from the lower eyelids can be achieved through an external approach, involving a small incision beneath the eyelashes. Ultimately, the incision is closed with a fine suture to tighten the skin.

Alternatively, it can be performed through a small internal or transconjunctival incision, extracting the fat. Throughout the procedure, the eyes are protected with contact lenses once anesthetic drops have been applied.
