PLASTIC SURGEON ALBERTO AREVALO / FACIAL SURGERY
PLASTIC SURGEON ALBERTO AREVALO / BLEPHAROPLASTY
It is the corrective surgery of the eyelids. Indicated when we have excess skin in the upper eyelid, or swelling, by the presence of fat bags in both the upper and lower eyelid.
The procedure consists of removing, by laser or conventional scalpel, the excess skin that is causing a weight in the upper eyelids, or fat bags that have been protruding over time giving an appearance of tiredness or discomfort.
It can be performed under local anesthesia or total anesthesia.
The procedure can be performed at any age, when the patient considers that he/she has a sad look or has a heavy upper eyelid, or both conditions.

As with any facial surgery, the disability does not depend on pain (which is usually moderate to minimal), but on the presence of swelling or bruising, which varies greatly from one patient to another, depending on the type of skin. This incapacity can be between 3 days and a week.
The first days after surgery we must apply cold locally (cold gel packs). It greatly reduces swelling, bruising and pain.
Our greatest enemy in facial surgery, during the postoperative period, is sunlight, and more specifically the ultraviolet rays of the sun. They can cause dark spots in those areas where there were hematomas, especially in the area of the eye bags. These dark circles, with their dark tone, can be permanently accentuated.
Normally between the 4th and 6th week we can return to “normal life”, resume gym routines, go to the pool or the beach. In addition, almost at the same time, we can begin to see the final result of the procedure.
