The eyelid lift procedure has been refined over the last few years. These days it is a fairly straightforward cosmetic surgery and thousands of blepharoplasties are carried out each year in Mexico. As people age, their eyelids tend to droop and this makes them seem tired and old. An eyelid lift removes excess skin and fat from the eye area and tightens weakened muscles, thus giving patients a more youthful appearance.
The eyelid lift procedure can also be used to treat patients with ptosis or, overly droopy eyelids. Ptosis may be a result of a number of issues including a congenital defect or damage to the eye.
The plastic surgeon that you visit in Mexico will make sure that you are a good candidate for an eyelid lift by explaining the treatment in detail to you. He will also outline the eyelid lift risks and side effects so that you understand exactly what is involved.The eyelid lift procedure lasts 1-3 hours depending on how complicated your particular treatment is. If you are having related procedures such as nose surgery or a facelift it will take longer.
Blepharoplasty is usually carried out under local anaesthetic and some surgeons may provide sedatives to calm and relax patients. The eyelid lift procedure is very rarely performed under general anaesthesia.
During the first part of the eyelid lift procedure, the surgeon makes some tiny incisions along the natural creases or folds of the eyelid. This is so that the scars are not visible later. If the surgeon makes the incisions on the inside of the eyelid there will be no visible scarring at all. The second part of the eyelid lift procedure is where the surgeon removes excess fat and skin from your eye area. He also tightens loose eye muscles.
Straight after the surgery your eyes will be bandaged and you will be taken to a recovery room so you can be monitored to make sure everything is okay. The eyelid lift procedure is done in an outpatient clinic which means you will be able to go home in a few hours.
Now, all you have to do is recover from your eyelid lift and wait for your amazing results!
