FREQUENTLY QUESTIONS

When we look in a mirror and see that they are not equal (asymmetry), or are fallen or inflamed. We can also see bags or excess skin under our eyes. There is a very important aspect that we can feel with our upper eyelids, which when falling can alter the vision giving an aspect of tiredness in the person, and can even reflect an older age.

Changes in the shape or sizes (anatomy) of the eyelids are generally not due to disease, however, every patient before having eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty should have a visual capacity test, thyroid tests and kidney function tests. .

Yes, a more attractive and vital aspect can be achieved through the rearrangement of fat, symmetry and removal of excess skin and muscle.

Small cuts of leftover skin, fat and muscle can be made through unseen incisions. In young patients who only have bags caused by excess fat, these are corrected through the conjunctiva without external skin cuts.

As with all facial plastic surgery, a complete clinical evaluation and realistic expectations are indispensable. Understanding the plastic surgery procedures and routines to be followed by the patient are essential for a successful end result.
