Eyelid correction or blepharoplasty is a type of surgical procedure that effectively and aesthetically removes excess skin and fat tissue on the eyelids. Aging causes the loss of skin elasticity and the skin begins to fall over the edges of the eyelids.
The correction of the eyelids, i.e. the surgical procedure, is done under local anesthesia and is completely painless. During the procedure excess skin and fat tissue are removed. The wound is closed with stiches, which are removed after 7 days. Since the scar is in the skin fold of the eyelid, with time it disappears completely.
Dr. Sc. Bilic has performed blepharoplasty thousands of times in her long career as a surgeon, which is a confirmation of her high surgical expertise.
The operation is performed in the operating room under sterile conditions. The excess of skin and fat tissue is removed, and the incision is done by tracking the skin grooves, because in that way it heals more easily, and the scar almost completely disappears after a while. Anesthesia is local, and the operation is completely painless. After the surgery, an analgetic (ibuprufen, ketonal, etc.) may be taken.
It is advisable to do such procedure in an ophthalmologic facility due to possible permanent effects on the eye that occur in case of over-correction in the performance of a surgeon whose specialty is not closely related to the eyes. An ophthalmologist always takes care of the health and function of the eye itself, and with the operation itself delivers top aesthetic results for the patient.
