Eyelid surgery - Blepharoplasty Lower Lid Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery- Blepharoplasty – Lower Lid Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

What kind of surgery is that?

 This is a cosmetic surgery which is performed on the upper and lower eyelids for the purposes of their correction: removing excess skin and fatty tissue on the lids, shortening orbital muscles, removing wrinkles around the eyes.

If there is not much excess skin, and if there are small wrinkles on the lower lid, our recommendation is surgical CO2 laser.

What is preparation for the surgery?

Before scheduling your surgery, you are supposed to do the following analyses and bring your results with you:

1.            Blood type

We need a document where your blood type is stated. The surname in the document MUST be the same as the surname in your ID.

2.            Laboratory analyses (not older than two weeks):

• Complete blood count - erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, hemoglobin, hematocrit, iron, sedimentation

            • Biochemical parameters - urea, creatinine, glucose, bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase,                      transaminases (AST and ALT), electrolytes (potassium, sodium chlorides)

            • Coagulation parameters - APTT, prothrombin time and INR

            • Urine sediment

The most common reason for canceling the planned surgery is a bad result of some of these analyses.

For this reason, we insist that you do these laboratory analyses and send them to us before coming to the surgery.

  The price of the operation includes preoperative preparation: digital X-ray of the lungs, examination by a radiologist, examination by a cardiologist, EKG and examination by an anesthesiologist. These tests are done in our hospital.

  All possible, necessary additional analyses, e.g. breast ultrasound or thyroid hormone tests, will be charged separately and are not included in the price.

 What kind of anesthesia is used for the intervention?

Most often it is done under local anesthesia with analgosedation; however it can be done under local anesthesia as well.

 When can I go home after the surgery?

  Two hours after the surgery, you can go home. The recommendation is to put cold chamomile cold compresses until the next day. The stitches are removed on the sixth day following the surgery.

 With the transconjunctival surgery of lower lids, there is no incision; therefore, there are no stitches to be removed.

 What are the things I should not be afraid of after the intervention?

 Swelling, bruises and redness of the lids are normal, expected and transient.

 How long does it take to return to usual daily activities?

 Seven days after the surgery you may return to regular daily activities and in case of visible swelling and bruises as soon as they disappear.

 What is the final result I can expect?

 The maximum effect of the intervention is visible after three to four weeks.

Since the incision is in the natural crease of the lid, the incision is practically invisible.

With the new technique of transconjunctival surgery of lower lids, there is no incision; and the laser tightens and creates a new skin of the lower lid.


Examination and consultations are free of charge.
