Blepharoplasty is an operation that allows you to lift the eyelids, restore a clear look and get rid of problems associated with excess skin around the eyes.

The service is available at branches:
  • Odessa, Sudnobudivna, 1B
  • Kyiv, Kostiantynivska, 57

Service types

  • Cantopexy
  • Upper eyelid surgery
  • Epicanthus plasty (Asian plasty)
  • Lower eyelid surgery
  • Transconjunctival blepharoplasty

The skin around the eyes is the first to suffer from age-related changes. Wrinkles, drooping eyelids, bags under the eyes become an aesthetic problem and cause discomfort. Then a person thinks about plastic surgery.

Indications and contraindications for eyelid plastic surgery

Eyelid surgery is performed on all people who want to improve their appearance. There are direct indications for blepharoplasty:

  • ptosis or drooping of the eyelid;
  • wrinkles in the eye area;
  • bags (hernias) under the eyes formed from excess fatty tissue;
  • excess skin in the periorbital area;
  • eyelid curl (entropion);
  • the corners of the eyes are lowered.

During the consultation, the plastic surgeon may identify certain contraindications to blepharoplasty:

  • glaucoma;
  • pathologies of the thyroid gland;
  • hypertension in the acute stage;
  • diseases of the cardiovascular system;
  • kidney and liver failure.

Blepharoplasty is not performed on pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding. This is due to the use of anesthesia.

The result of blepharoplasty

After the operation, the patient gets a new fresh look and tightened skin around the eyes. Blepharoplasty allows:

  • remove the drooping eyelid;
  • make the look more expressive and young;
  • pull the corners of the eyes up;
  • get rid of excess skin that deforms the eyelid;
  • smooth wrinkles on the upper part of the face;
  • to correct various defects, for example, eyelid curl;
  • remove bags under the eyes.

If the plastic is done correctly, the result is preserved for many years.

Rehabilitation after blepharoplasty

The patient’s rehabilitation begins in the postoperative ward. After waking up from anesthesia, he is under the supervision of medical personnel.
Blepharoplasty is classified as a simple operation, so there is no need to stay in the clinic for a long time. If the operation took place in the morning, you should be in the clinic until the evening. If the intervention took place in the afternoon, the patient is left overnight.
Immediately after plastic surgery, special stickers are placed on the eyelids that hold the seams. After 4-5 days after discharge, the retainers are removed together with the sutures. During the week, bruises remain in the operated area, which can be masked with foundation and cosmetics. In general, after 2-3 weeks after plastic surgery, a barely noticeable scar is formed on the eyelids, which is practically invisible.
In order for rehabilitation to take place faster, patients are advised to undergo physiotherapy. This is a complex aimed at healing seams, reducing swelling and dissolving bruises. For people with vision problems, an ophthalmologist can prescribe gels and drops to moisten the eyes. They facilitate the postoperative period.
The doctor’s re-examination is carried out one month after plastic surgery.
Patients who leave feedback about blepharoplasty talk about a little discomfort in the first days after the intervention. It is associated with eye patches and disappears immediately after the sutures are removed. Instead, a person sees a renewed face and a fresh look in the mirror.

Trust the professionals!

In addition to the aesthetic side of the issue, “problem eyelids” can even have a negative impact on vision due to the limitation of the field of vision. And this, not to mention the psychological discomfort!

What will happen if you do not do blepharoplasty

Eyelid lifting solves not only aesthetic problems, but also allows you to “flatten” the look in the literal sense. There are cases when there is too much skin on the eyelids and it covers the eye. It affects a person’s vision, his well-being, and leads to various pathologies. In some cases, amblyopia, strabismus, and astigmatism develop. Due to the fact that the pupil is constantly covered by skin, the mucous membrane of the eye is not sufficiently cleaned. Therefore, infectious inflammations become a frequent companion of drooping eyelids.

Popular questions


One of the anatomical specific features that negatively affect appearance is the deepening of the lacrimal duct area. In such cases, the existing defect is filled up using the graft material harvested from patient’s temporal or periauricular fascias.

This method is used in the world practice of plastic surgery for many years in order to complete individual objectives and provide excellent aesthetic results

Hospital stay

During the first postoperative hours we monitor your health state along with the state of the postoperative wound. On the next day after the surgery, wearing glasses, you can leave home. You will return to the clinic just to change the dressing.

The surtures are removed on the 4th and 5th day after the treatment. Postoperative bruising and swelling usually disappear in the course of 2 weeks.

You can resume active lifestyle and go back to work 3-5 days after the surgery wearing dark glasses.

Possible complications

In spite of seemingly easy nature of the eyelid rejuvenation operation, it is also

important to remember about complications that may happen if the work is done by inexperienced surgeon.

Most frequent complication is ptosis of lower eyelid margin (contraction).

Operations that lead to poor aesthetic effect demonstrate hollow eyes, undisguised postoperative scarring, short-term effect, sings of wrinkles, upwards and downwards eye-ball misplacement, lower eye-lid margin contouring, not fully closed eyelids during the sleep. That is why we should not turn to the clinics with doubtful reputation.

How many years will the results of blepharoplasty last?

The effect after an eyelid lift lasts for 8-10 years. It is impossible to stop age-related changes: they progress, and bags under the eyes and excess skin on the eyelids may appear again. Therefore, patients often seek revision blepharoplasty. This can be done if necessary.

Is it possible to combine eyelid surgery with other operations?

Skin problems around the eyes affect not only the eyelids. And in 50% of cases it is impossible to achieve the desired effect with blepharoplasty alone. Therefore, it is combined with other manipulations: face lift, forehead lift, eyebrow lift, neck lift, etc. Additionally, methods of distributing the tissues of the lower and upper eyelids are used to improve the transition between the eyelid and cheek, to correct sunken eyes.
Facial surgeries are perfectly combined with each other, as well as with other types of plastic surgery. In patients over 40-45 years of age, liposuction, breast shape correction, etc. are performed in parallel with a facelift. These are modern, low-traumatic techniques that allow you to get impressive results.

Is it possible to also tighten the sacs during blepharoplasty?

Malar bags (hernias or sufas) are formations from a layer of adipose tissue that form on the cheekbones. They occur after 35 years of age as a result of natural aging of the face. The muscles in the cheekbone area weaken, the subcutaneous fat layer slides down and sags in the form of a bag. Sufas are not removed, but they can be tightened – a paint lift. This operation goes well with blepharoplasty.

Preparation for blepharoplasty

Preparation for blepharoplasty begins with a consultation with a plastic surgeon. The doctor examines the patient, questions him about complaints, identifies possible contraindications. The next step is to talk to the anesthesiologist and get a blood test. If you have vision problems, such as dry eyes, farsightedness, you need to see an ophthalmologist.
After all planned examinations, the patient is assigned the date and time of the operation, and additional recommendations are given. They should be performed at home a day before surgery.

Stages of blepharoplasty

Regardless of the purpose of the operation – lifting of the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, removal of bags, blepharoplasty includes the following stages:

  1. Administration of anesthesia to the patient.
  2. Direct surgical intervention on the eyelids. Skin removal, wrinkle correction, lifting, etc.
  3. Removal from anesthesia.
  4. Rehabilitation.

During the operation, the patient does not feel anything. Just inserting the catheter into the vein can cause discomfort. Depending on the type of blepharoplasty, the time and stages of the process differ.
In general, there are several types of eyelid lifting:

  1. Classic operation.
    It is carried out using small incisions. During the lifting of the upper eyelid, an incision is made directly in the fold of the eyelid. At the same time, excess skin is removed and expressiveness is returned to the eyes. A lower eyelid lift involves a seam along the line of eyelash growth, without touching them. After lifting, the condition of the eyelid muscles improves, the bags under the eyes disappear. Circular blepharoplasty is performed on both eyelids and aims to comprehensively rejuvenate the skin around the eyes.
  2. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty.
    This is a seamless type of lifting that is performed without large surgical incisions. All manipulations are carried out through a small hole in the conjunctiva. The operation is performed when fatty hernias are present, but there is no excess skin on the eyelids. This is due to the fact that it is impossible to remove sagging folds with the help of conjunctival puncture. But transconjunctival blepharoplasty allows you to get rid of bags under the eyes. Therefore, it is prescribed to patients up to 38-40 years old who do not yet have pronounced problems.

The type of operation is chosen by the doctor after consultation and examination of the patient.

At the VIRTUS Institute, simultaneous (combined) operations are carried out, which involve the performance of several types of surgical interventions at once under one anesthesia. Blepharoplasty can be combined with an operation to improve vision or plastic surgery of the face, breasts (using implants or lipofilling), other areas of the body. Find out about the possibility of simultaneous surgery with your doctor.
