Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a corrective surgical operation of the eyelids.
There’s no particular age for blepharoplasty,an imperfection should be present to justify blepharoplasty in Tunisia.

It’s a procedure requested by both men and women after the age of 30.

Technique

The intervention consists of correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids; and for aesthetically modifying the eye region of the face. With the excision and the removal, or the repositioning (or both) of excess tissues, such as skin and adipocyte fat, and the reinforcement of the corresponding muscle and tendon tissues, the blepharoplasty procedure resolves functional and cosmetic problems of the periorbita, which is the area from the eyebrow to the upper portion of the cheek.

The scars are almost invisible and will disappear after a short period of time.

The operation is done through a particular type of incision called the transconjunctival incision which leaves no visible scars.

It’s also possible to pull the sagging skin to correct horizontal wrinkles.
The incision is made at the eyelash site and goes up for 1 to 2 millimeters to the crow’s foot area.

It becomes invisible in about 4 months.

We can intervene on 2 eyelids or 4 eyelids at the same time.

To eliminate the discomfort a regimen of painkillers and antibiotics will be prescribed for 7 days.
