EYELID SURGERY – BLEPHAROPLASTY
Exess skin in the eyelids is caused by a loss of skin elasticity which is one of the first signs of facial aging. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of eyelids and areas surrounding them. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can be used to remove excess and/or drooping skin or loose muscle and fat prolapses (baggy eyes).
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can remove drooping skin under lower eyelids, remove fat prolapses (bags under the eyes) or fill wrinkles by using eye fat transfer. Excess skin in the eyelids is caused by a loss of skin elasticity which is one of the first signs of facial aging.
- Generally, the procedure is performed under local anaesthetic but it can also be performed under sedation or general anaesthetic.
- Upper eyelid surgery can be completed in approximately 40 minutes.
- Lower eyelid surgery can be completed in approximately 1 hour.
- Post-surgery: Stitches are removed 1 week after surgery.
- Post-surgery: Cool compresses ahould be applied for 2 days, and eyes should be rested. For a week (no reading, no watching TV, dark sunglasses worn outdoors).
- Bruising and swelling may persist for 7-10 days.
Surgeon: Peter Ziak, MD, PhD. – plastic surgeon
„I was interested in the correction of my upper and lower eyelids for health as well as aesthetic reasons. For this procedure I chose Dr. Peter Ziak, based on the recommendation of a friend who knows him not only as a professional in the field of plastic surgery but also as a good and responsible person.
I was not let down by my choice in anyway. My admission to and reception by the clinic personnel was very professional. The environment of the clinic is of a high standard. I am very satisfied with the approach, service and care I received, but more especially with the results of the surgery. Dr. Ziak has done excellent job and my convalescence was trouble-free. I do not regret travelling all the way from Liptov to Bratislava for the surgery. Once again, I would like to thank Dr. Ziak and all the staff of the clinic. The recommendation I received was true. I recommend all women who are thinking of a similar procedure, to choose the professionalism and expertise offered by Dr. Ziak and the staff at Concept Clinic.“
„Based on the recommendation of a good friend, I entrusted myself to the hands of Dr. Ziak. I elected to have the surgery on both my upper and lower eyelids performed at the same time. Even though I thought that the treatment of my lower eyelids would be problematic, since I have had large rings and bags under my eyes since I was young, everything went well, without pain or complications. My pre-surgery consultation, surgery, and post-surgery care was all performed by Dr. Ziak in a very professional, kind and friendly manner.
Even the responses to a phone call I made after the surgery- I wanted to ask about post-operative swelling- was answered with care, willingness and genuine interest. All the clinic staff were very helpful, discreet and professional. My eyes now look better and more interesting than at any time in the last 15 -20 years. A big thank you.“
