What is Blepharoplasty and Puffiness Removal?
Blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery. It can be a cosmetic or reconstructive treatment, which aims to improve the appearance of sagging skin when it is weak and falls or accumulates in the upper or lower eyelid.
The surgery is usually performed to eliminate that annoying feeling of eyelid hanging over the eyes or bags, which often add years to us. But apart from that, from a health point of view, it can even reduce the field of vision and cause headaches. So it is interesting in both cases.
The ideal is to study the patient’s situation and propose one option or the other depending on the patient’s condition. In the case of performing it, it is an outpatient procedure and does not require hospitalization, so the patient returns home the same day. The duration of the intervention varies according to each case.

There are people who seek in this intervention to improve their appearance and rejuvenate their look, taking years off. But it can also be a person who has vision problems.
In any case, people with good health and psychological stability are good candidates to undergo this type of surgery. In general, a health examination, blood tests and electrocardiogram can be performed before the intervention to confirm that the patient can undergo the surgery.
Normally, it is suitable for people between 35 and 60 years of age. This is the most frequent profile of people who undergo this type of surgery. Mainly, they are people who seek to eliminate excess bags, skin and dark circles under the eyes that occur as the years go by and that can be very unsightly.
Types of blepharoplasty
To stop this problem the patient can undergo these interventions:
- Upper blepharoplasty: this technique is performed under local anesthesia. Its objective is to eliminate drooping eyelids, excess skin and / or bags located in the upper eyelid; largely eliminating the feeling of sad or tired look.
- Lower blepharoplasty: this type of surgery is performed on the lower eyelid, when excessive skin and fat accumulate in the lower bags and dark circles under the eyes.

Although the procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia or local anesthesia plus sedation, general anesthesia may be necessary. In many cases it depends on the surgeon’s preferences and the patient’s pathology, and any of these types of anesthesia may be considered.

The procedure leaves some small scars. After the operation they may have a pinkish color, but with time they will become almost invisible. The risk of poor scarring is low, but in any case the care must be performed correctly.
As for the postoperative period, care is simple for the patient. It is important to rest for a few days and apply cold to the area to reduce inflammation.
It is not advisable to do sports or exercise during the first two weeks. In some cases, an ointment and medication such as anti-inflammatories and a preventive antibiotic may be prescribed.
