Ocular Plastic Surgery
Oculoplastic surgery solves the pathologies of the eyelids
Oculoplastic surgery includes all surgical techniques designed to address diseases of the eyelids, both cosmetic (upper and lower blepharoplasty, bags) and functional (changes on lid margin, reconstructions, skin lesions) because in many cases, health and good functioning of the eyelids and eyelashes are vital for visual function.
Over time the eyelid skin loses its elasticity and firmness,that results in the appearance of skin folds and wrinkles, bags under the eyes…, not only causing aging or fatigue aspect, but can be a real nuisance when they affect visual field, limit eyelid elevation because of skin excess or modify eyelid position. In many cases it is also accompanied by dislocation of orbital fat.
Blepharoplasty is the surgical technic that removes excess tissue and fat bags under the eyes, rejuvenating skin aspect.
It can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids. Incisions are made in skin folds such that there are novisible scars.
It can also be accompanied by infiltration of botulinum toxin for better cosmetic results and reduce wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin blocks nerve impulses targeting all muscles that have been injected.
The application of botulinum toxin on facial aesthetic purposes is used to attenuate “dynamic wrinkles” or “expression lines”.
The effect of the toxin disappears between 4 and 6 months of the application, so it is generally recommended 2 or 3 applications per year.
