Blepharoplasty Aesthetic surgery of the eyelids: generalities and indications

Blepharoplasty aims to correct eyelid dislocations caused by excess skin and muscle or fat protrusions, without affecting the normal functioning of the eyelids. The disgressions that may be involved are the following: heavy and drooping upper eyelids with excess skin forming a fold; sagging and withered lower eyelids with small wrinkles; herniated fat causing bags under the eyes or puffiness above them.

Blepharoplasty is generally indicated in two main cases: sagging skin or fat accumulation. Skin sagging concerns people aged 40 to 45 years old or more and mainly affects the upper eyelids. Fat accumulation may appear earlier, i.e. as early as 20 or 25 years of age, and manifests itself in the form of bags under the eyes.


Blepharoplasty Tunisia: procedure of the operation

Depending on the degree of the procedure (two or four eyelids), blepharoplasty can be performed under local or general anesthesia and can last between half an hour to an hour. Depending on the surgeon and the case to be treated, the operation can be performed by a scarred or a scarless technique. The technique with scars is the one used in case of sagging skin alone or accompanied by fat pockets or hernias.

It proceeds by making an incision at the top and/or bottom of the eyelids to allow the surgeon to remove fat, excess skin and tissue under the skin. This allows the surgeon to keep a small muscle flap in order to then redrape the skin to reduce crow's feet wrinkles.
