Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can rejuvenate the appearance of saggy upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids. Dr. Echeagaray is a highly skilled plastic surgeon who strives to offer the best eyelid surgery Mexico has to offer.
Alters drooping upper eyelid skin and the puffy bags below the eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle. Offered by Dr. Echeagaray.
Approximately two hours.
General anesthesia or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia are used.
This is an outpatient procedure.
Possible Side Effects:
Temporary discomfort, a feeling of “tightness” in the eyelid area, swelling or bruising. Excessive tearing and sensitivity to light for the first few weeks should be expected. Temporary dryness, burning, or itching of eyes may also occur but these side effects are rare.
Temporary blurred or double vision, infection, bleeding, swelling at the corners of the eyelids, dry eyes, the formation of whiteheads, slight asymmetry upon healing or scarring, difficulty in closing eyes completely (which is rarely permanent), and a lowered position of the lower eyelids which may require further surgery. Permanent loss of vision is a risk but this is extremely rare.
Why Undergo Eyelid Surgery?
If your sagging or drooping eyelids create a constantly tired, frustrated, or sad look, you may want to think about eyelid surgery. Blepharoplasty can also restore a more youthful appearance, along with making patients look more awake and alert.
In some cases, the sagging of the upper eyelids can affect vision. By tightening and lifting the upper lids, field of vision is restored.
Eyelid Surgery Candidates
Those considering eyelid surgery should be in good general health. The ideal candidates for eyelid surgery are those who have never smoked and have no significant medical issues. Patients must have reasonable expectations for the final appearance of their upper and/or lower eyelids and the area surrounding their eyes.
The Eyelid Surgery Consultation
During your blepharoplasty consultation, Dr. Echeagaray will assess your health and examine your eyelids. He will go over your medical history, including any prior surgeries, any allergies you may have to medications, your current prescriptions, and your anticipated results.
Dr. Echeagaray will then provide his professional opinion on how to best address your condition. The details of the procedure will be discussed, including preparation, recovery, and possible complications.
Recovering from Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery has a short recovery time. It typically results in some degree of bruising and swelling, but these side effects can be quickly reduced with the application of cool compresses. Keeping your head elevated at all times can help, and walking is an easy activity that can aid in the recovery process.
The patient may begin reading after about two to three days and can expect to return to work after approximately five to ten days. The use of contact lenses may be resumed after two weeks (upon re-evaluation by the physician). The patient should not consume alcohol after the surgery. More strenuous activities and alcohol consumption may be resumed after three weeks. Bruising and swelling should be gone after several weeks.
Eyelid Surgery Results
Once you have fully recovered from your eyelid surgery, your eyes will have a more youthful and vibrant appearance. The length of the results provided can vary between patients. For some, the effects of this procedure may last several years and for others, it may be permanent.
The Cost of Eyelid Surgery
The cost of your eyelid surgery in Mexico will be based on whether upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or a combination of the two procedures is performed. Dr. Echeagaray will go over the expected cost of your eyelid surgery during your consultation.
