Eyes always tell the truth …. It is not necessary to tell our age.
The sensitive and thin skin around the eyes is the first area affected by time and is where its signs are most visible. However, the eyes are the center of one’s personality and their appearance has a significant effect on a person’s looks. Although the first wrinkles around eyes appear after a certain age, extrinsic factors (environment, exposure to solar radiation) as well as heredity have an important role to play in premature aging of the eyelids, the formation of black circles or the so-called “bags” under the eyes.
This results in laxity of the eye muscle and quite often affects the shape of the eyes (from almond-shaped to round eyes) or even vision, when upper eyelid ptosis affects peripheral vision. For this reason we advise our patients not to hesitate to proceed with blepharoplasty at a young age.
Any man or woman who wishes to treat the aesthetic problem of puffy eyes and droopy eyelids is a good candidate for blepharoplasty. Most patients who decide to undergo this procedure are over the age of 35. However, if ptosis may develop at a younger age due to heredity, you may proceed with the procedure according to the advice of the plastic surgeon, Dr. Athanasios Athanasiou.
The results pf blepharoplasty are visible for 10-12 years after the procedure. The skin that is removed from the area will not appear again; however, the effects of gravity and time can not be stopped. Achieving a better look and stalling the effects of aging is possible through the use of effective, modern and safe methods.
Edemas will remain for 5-7 days although this depends on the technique and approach used by the surgeon and your type of work. It is advisable that you wear sunglasses during recovery, you should also avoid lifting weights and engaging in intense activities.
