Eyelid Surgery in Colombia

The eyelids are one of the first facial features to reflect the effects of aging.  Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.  It gives a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) in Colombia can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. This procedure can help revive the eye area thereby providing a rejuvenated appearance to the facial area.

Upper eyelid surgery can remove excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids. Fat removal is carefully tailored to each person’s anatomic requirements with various amounts of skin being removed as necessary to achieve the desired facial appearance. Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision, can also be treated by eyelid lift surgery.

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid, reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes, and correct droopiness of the lower eyelids (the showing of white below the iris). There are a number of different techniques for lower eyelid surgery depending upon a patient’s specific anatomic requirements and desired objectives. These may include fat excision and/or repositioning, skin excision, mid-face elevation, and others.

Consultation and Preparation:

A blepharoplasty procedure in Colombia is usually performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have realistic goals for improvement of the upper and/or lower eyelids and surrounding area.

There are some key concepts that can help you understand eyelid surgery in Colombia and prepare you for your consultation. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • There are several different techniques for eyelid surgery.  Your surgeon will explain your options and recommend the most appropriate technique for you.
  • You can expect to miss about a week of work.
  • When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, eyelid surgery is safe.

Out of town patients often begin with a virtual consultation online, where they meet their plastic surgeon and discuss the desired changes they would like to make.  Goals are discussed and photographs are reviewed to develop an individual treatment plan for each patient.  The surgeon provides information on expected outcomes and any risks of the procedure(s).  Once in Colombia, patients receive a personal consultation at their chosen plastic surgery center.  The surgeon discusses all aspects of desired procedures, and performs a complete physical examination and evaluation the past medical history. This process is essential for establishing you as a candidate for eyelid surgery in Colombia.

Your surgeon can recommend certain steps to help you achieve optimal health for your procedure, and schedules preoperative medical evaluations and tests as necessary.  Surgeons often also provides access to their specialists in nutrition and exercise physiology to optimize your chances for success, and for a healthy lifestyle and more beautiful you.


Procedure:

Eyelid surgery in Colombia  is typically performed with a combination of general and local anesthesia.  The incision lines for eyelid surgery are designed for scars to be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Droopy conditions of the upper eyelid can be corrected through an incision within the natural crease of the upper eyelid allowing repositioning of fat deposits, tightening of muscles and tissue, and/or removal of excess skin.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Conditions of the lower eyelid may be corrected with an incision just below the lower lash line. Through this incision, excess skin in the lower eyelids is removed.  A transconjunctival incision, one hidden inside the lower eyelid, is an alternate technique to correct lower eyelid conditions and redistribute or remove excess fat.

The results of eyelid surgery will appear gradually as swelling and bruising subside to reveal a smooth, better-defined eyelid and surrounding region, and an alert and rejuvenated appearance.


Recovery:

This procedure can be completed in just a few hours at an outpatient surgery suite in Colombia.  With modern techniques, swelling and bruising during the recovery period can be minimized.  After your procedure is completed, lubricating ointment and cold compresses may be applied, and in some cases your eyes may be loosely covered with gauze.  Makeup can be applied to the eyes 24 hours following the removal of sutures.
