Everything you need to know about blepharoplasty: advantages and postoperative recommendations

about blepharoplasty | dr villafañe

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery performed on the eyelids, both upper and lower, with the aim of improving their appearance and reducing signs of aging. This procedure has become increasingly popular due to its multiple advantages and satisfactory results.

Among the most outstanding advantages of blepharoplasty, we find:

  1. Improved appearance of the eyelids: blepharoplasty allows for the removal of excess skin, fat, and muscle that can accumulate in the eyelids, resulting in a fresher and rejuvenated look.
  2. Increased self-esteem: many people who undergo this surgery feel more confident in themselves after seeing the results.
  3. Improved vision: in some cases, excess skin on the upper eyelids can interfere with vision. Blepharoplasty helps eliminate this problem.

However, it is important to keep in mind that blepharoplasty is a surgery and, as such, requires care and postoperative recommendations to achieve proper recovery and satisfactory results.

Some postoperative recommendations to consider are:

  1. Adequate rest: it is important to rest enough after the intervention to allow your body to recover.
  2. Application of cold compresses: cold compresses help reduce swelling and pain.
  3. Use of sunglasses: it is recommended to use sunglasses to protect the eyes from direct sunlight and prevent irritations.
  4. Avoiding intense physical activities: during the first few weeks after surgery, it is advisable to avoid intense physical activities that may put recovery at risk.
