Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty)

Eyes and the anatomical formations that surround them (eyelids, eyebrows and eyelashes) are the decisive features of our face and the first to betray our age. Moreover unpleasant "bags" under the eyes or on the eyelids give the impression of a tired person or add to our years.
That is exactly what we aim at with blepharoplasty in order to offer a relaxed and expressive look that always impresses.
Eyelid surgery is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic surgery, which can be done either to the above or to the lower eyelids, or both, depending on the extent of the problem.
Dr Andreanidis, our plastic surgeon, aided by a simulation program, creates the computer simulation of the desired effect, helping you make an informed choice that you really like and fits perfectly your face.

  • Lower Eyelid Surgery

    Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can be done with two types of techniques.
    With an internal incision in the conjunctiva of the eye, which is indicated for younger people, under the age of 40, presenting "bags" under the eyes, not because of age relaxation (they do not have excess skin). With this technique the excess fat "responsible" for the bags is removed and the bags disappear.
    With outer section which is below the lashes at the outer side of the lower eyelid, which after a short time becomes invisible. This technique is appropriate when you need to also correct the relaxation of the lower eyelid, removing excess skin.
    The lower eyelid surgery is performed under local anesthesia and in some cases with intoxication (intravenous sedation) and takes approximately 40 minutes.

  • Upper Eyelid Surgery

    In the upper eyelids the incision is made in the natural crease of the eyelid, from which we remove fat and excess skin. In this case also, the intersection becomes invisible after a few weeks.

    The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and takes about 30 minutes.

  • Total Blepharoplasty

    This is blepharoplasty of the upper and lower eyelid, which lasts about 1 hour and 10 minutes under intoxication (intravenous sedation).

    Postoperative progress and monitoring
    After surgery people undergoing blepharoplasty experience some swelling in the area, which depending on the organism, disappears within 4-8 days.
    On the 4th day, the two sutures that were used, one for the upper eyelid and one for the bottom, are removed and the first postoperative assessment is done by your surgeon.
    The next postoperative monitoring appointment is performed 3 weeks after the surgery, when the effects become apparent as there is no swelling and the healing has progressed.
    Exercise is allowed after three weeks.

  • Eyelid and ideal combinations

    Eyelid surgery with mini brow lift:
    The perfect combination for an "open" look is the combination of the eyelid surgery with a mini brow lift that helps a permanent lifting of eyebrows, when they have lost their support and "weigh" on the eyelids.
    In this case, with very small incisions of 1.5 cm on the scalp, eyebrows are permanently lifted opening and refreshing your look.
    Brow lift with fibroblasts or "natural botox»:
    Blepharoplasty when combined with "natural botox» has excellent results regarding the renewal of your look.
    Women that choose "natural botox" for brow lift look at least 5-8 years younger. Natural botox, as it usually called in the US, is a new fibroblast injection method performed on the side of the eyebrows, so eyebrows lift up and look renewed.
    The benefits are many because with this technique not only the gaze looks more youthful but also the whole face. This is a modified technique with fibroblasts taken from our fat cells, which is simple and has excellent results seen immediately. This is because this method re-creates the missing volume that supports the eyebrows, which is reduced with the passing of time. Along with the volume the freshness of gaze is lost as the eyebrows fall and with them the upper eyelid.
    What is "natural botox"?
    The method is performed in the clinic and lasts 25 minutes. The first step in this modified technique is the intake of fat, with local anesthesia, from a part of the body.
    After we take the fat a specific treatment is used (washing, centrifugation) to isolate fibroblasts from fat cells. Next fat is implanted with a small syringe to the side of the eyebrow.
    The result is immediately apparent and obvious at the first look in the mirror.
    The big advantage of this method is that our fat is used so it is perfectly safe and that its effects last longer.
