Are you considering rejuvenating your upper eyelids?
The scarcity of elastic and collagen fibers, the absence of fatty cells, the size of the muscles involved in the blinking of the eyelid which beats approximately 10,000 times a day, cause the eye area to age faster than the rest of the face.
Fatigue, tobacco, UV rays, but also stress, heat and facial expressions are impressed there at full speed.
Drooping eyelids can make some people look older than they are, and they can also interfere with vision.
Eyelid drooping can be constant, or worsen over time, or sometimes come and go; therefore, it may be on one side or both.
The daily approach
Cosmetics can be used, but they have their limits, they generally only concern the eye area and they can only improve certain problems (reduce the pigmentation of the dark circle, slightly improve the skin appearance of the eyelid by bringing a tension effect.
The surgical approach
If the fall of the tail of the eyebrow is easily corrected by the use of botulinum toxin, the excess skin will be treated with the procedure called upper blepharoplasty.
This operation is most often performed under local anesthesia and consists of the removal of excess skin, the scar being placed in the crease of the upper eyelid and therefore invisible as soon as the eye is opened. We generally take advantage of this gesture of skin ablation to remove a small ball of fat on the internal side, near the nose, a fatty ball that makes the look of the eyes heavier.
Post-operative care consists of the use of eye drops and ophthalmic ointment, if necessary for analgesics.
The consequences are marked by more or less significant hematomas depending on the patient and are a function of the qualities of the skin, possible smoking ... and attenuated by the use of a homeopathic preparation based on Arnica started a few days before the operation. and continued a few days later. The threads are removed after 5 to 7 days.
The bruises last from one to two weeks, the result normalizes within a few days.
