Blepharoplasty
Lower eyelid plastic surgery

Plastic surgery

The eyes have a major effect on the expression of the face as a whole. That is why blepharoplasty has become one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the face. It offers health benefits as well as aesthetic improvement. Excess skin and fatty deposits in the area of the lower eyelids can impair the vision, resulting in tired eyes that may experience excessive tear production and burning.

The human eye is set in a fatty cushion lined with a fibrous sheath. Over time, this sheath loses firmness and fatty deposits push their way under the skin of the lower eyelid. This causes fat prolapse or bags under the eyes. A number of factors influence this process, from genetics to skin type or predisposition to swelling, especially when diseases of the thyroid and kidneys are present.

One of the most frequent aesthetic problems – bags under the eyes – make the face look older and more tired. Plastic surgery of the lower eyelids, however, can reverse this process.

What is blepharoplasty

Plastic surgery on the eyelids is performed to remove excess skin and fatty deposits.

Keep in mind that the aging process affects not only the eyes but the entire face. That is why surgery on the lower eyelids is often combined with surgery of the upper eyelids and other aesthetic procedures such as facelift (tightening the skin of the face). In that case, the procedure must be performed under general anesthesia.

Who is a suitable candidate for this procedure

Lower lid blepharoplasty is suitable for both women and men. Most of the time, it is performed in clients over 40. Although, with a certain predisposition, it can be performed in younger clients as well. Candidates for this procedure must be in good health.

What can you gain from this procedure

  • The procedure is suitable for both men and women
  • Removes fat bags under the eyes
  • Ideal in combination with a laser
  • Visible rejuvenation
  • Get rid of the tired eyes sensation
  • Proper eyelid function

Before the procedure

Before choosing lower lid blepharoplasty, you will need to have an initial consultation with a plastic surgeon. If you decide to visit ABClinic Art & Beauty from another country, you can have the first consultation based on photographs or online.

At a consultation at the clinic in Prague before the surgery, the plastic surgeon will assess your skin quality once again and suggest the most suitable technique for optimal results.

If blepharoplasty is to be performed under brief general anesthesia, you will need to have a pre-operative examination either at our clinic or with your GP.

Clients who take blood thinners (such as Warfarin) should consult with their attending physician on temporarily discontinuing use.

The procedure

Blepharoplasty can be performed in two different ways. Both of them are approximately one hour long.

External access
During the procedure under local anesthesia, the plastic surgeon makes an incision about 2 mm long just under the eyelid and removes the fatty deposits there. Then the surgeon closes the incision.

Internal access
For greater comfort, the surgery is performed under general anesthesia and is suitable for clients who have fatty deposits without excess skin. The plastic surgeon makes an incision through the conjunctiva inside the lower eyelid and removes fatty deposits. This usually does not require a stitch and can be left to heal spontaneously.

After the procedure

You can go home immediately in case of local anesthesia.

If the surgery is performed under general anesthesia, you shall be hospitalized at our clinic.

We recommend avoiding physical activity after the procedure and applying cold compresses to limit swelling and bruising. Most of the swelling will subside after several days with frequent cold compresses. It usually disappears entirely after one to two weeks. For a week after the surgery, we recommend sleeping with your head elevated and limiting physical activity.

You can remove the bandage from your eyes on the day after the procedure. We recommend cooling for seven days, then the stitches will be removed. You can start massaging the scars fourteen days after the procedure.

You should avoid sunlight for two to three months and protect your eyelids with high SPF sun cream.

Unfortunately, the effects of aging and gravity on the body cannot be avoided forever. The aging process will, of course, impact the long-term stability of your results. To maintain a good result, our specialists will be happy to recommend regular procedures and therapies designed to slow down the aging process in the face. Preventive care products by Dermaceutic Laboratoire as well as therapies using JEISYS devices and exclusive comprehensive procedures by RENEVE MONACO will help you retain a youthful appearance longer.

Important information

Returning to everyday activities
You can resume light office work on the third day after the surgery. Swelling and bruising will continue for about one to two weeks. The final results of the procedure will be visible after four to eight weeks when the swelling fully subsides. By this time the scar should be faint and barely visible.

  • I’ve always had wrinkles on my neck, and the skin on my chin started to loosen, so I decided to solve my problem. At ABClinic, doctor Krajcová offered a collagen treatment using the Nithya agent. The result is amazing, and improvement has been visible even after the first session. I have had three sessions, my neck and chin are firmer, and the neck is without wrinkles after the third and final session. Julie V.

  • I was finding courage for the face-lift procedure for two years (I had been unhappy with a double chin). In January, at the age of 64, I underwent the procedure. The surgery was performed by MUDr. Šatánková. The result was magnificent. I want to thank the doctor and the personnel. A perfect nurse took care of us after the surgery and at night, and others were very nice, too. I’m happy to have taken this step. I heartily recommend it to all those who hesitate! Jindřiška F.

  • I would like to thank Alice at ABClinic and Dr. Satankova for all their help. I recently attended the ABClinic in Prague for a facelift and lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Satankova is extremely skilled and I have a more youthful but natural result. The clinic is very professionally run and the recovery rooms are beautiful. Traveling from abroad can be daunting but Alice helped me every step of the way, arranging taxi transfers and a hotel. I felt confident and cared for throughout my surgery. I am very happy with the results. Georgina M.
