Yuliya Leychenko, an ophthalmoplastic surgeon at the Eximer Medical Center, tells the story.
Why do bags under the eyes appear even at a young age?
We say "bags" under the eyes or, in scientific terms, periorbital hernias, but in fact it is a protrusion of fatty tissue that envelops the eyeball itself.
This is how nature created the human eye to be protected from any damage.
But with age, when the tissues around the eyes lose elasticity and stretch, or there is a genetic predisposition, fatty tissue bulges, which creates bags under the eyes.
And it certainly doesn't look very attractive.
Is it possible to get rid of puffiness under the eyes without surgery?
Of course, a healthy lifestyle, good sleep, visiting a cosmetologist - all this strengthens the tissues around the eyes and reduces the protrusion of fatty tissue.
However, there comes a certain time when neither rest, nor walks in the fresh air, nor all kinds of achievements in cosmetology can mask this defect.
And then a person turns to an ophthalmoplastic surgeon to get rid of this problem.
Who usually applies for blepharoplasty?
It is interesting that today this procedure is very popular not only among women, but also among men.
We also see patients with traumatic injuries, eyelid scars, neoplasms, as well as people with age-related changes in the eyelids (vertigo or inversion).
Thus, along with aesthetic blepharoplasty, a large proportion of patients need reconstructive blepharoplasty.
Moreover, it is not necessary to go abroad for high-quality plastics.
We also offer modern technologies.
Of course, we are talking about medical clinics equipped with high-tech equipment.
Various ophthalmoplastic operations can be performed here with a minimal risk of complications and a quick rehabilitation period.
At what age is it better to do blepharoplasty?
As for age, there are no specific restrictions.
After all, even at a young age, there can be pronounced bags under the eyes, which a person does not like, and he wants to get rid of them.
And there are congenital defects that prevent a normal life.
Therefore, this operation can be done regardless of how old you are.
How long does it take to recover from surgery?
Modern techniques are extremely high-tech and minimally invasive.
At the "Excimer" ophthalmology center, we use a radio wave knife, modern high-precision instruments, microscopes - all this makes the rehabilitation period after surgery minimal.
After surgery, patients can go home after 2-3 hours.
As for returning to normal life, it should take 5-7 days, and a person can go to work, of course, if it is not associated with heavy physical exertion.
How long does the rejuvenating effect last after blepharoplasty?
A beautiful young look can remain for a long period of time - ten or even more years.
Of course, to secure a long-lasting effect, you need to take care of your skin - visit a cosmetologist, lead a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight.
