Blepharoplasty

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) in Cyprus, Greece and Malta

The eyes are the window to your soul,’ as William Shakespear once said. We look people in the eyes to decipher what they think and how they feel.

But as we get older, the skin around our eyes ages too. Eyelids become ‘heavy’ and ‘bags’ appear under the eyes that make us look tired, sleepy and uninterested in the person we are talking to.

Moreover, sun exposure, smoking and genes accelerate the natural aging changes to our eyes.

Blepharoplasty – or eyelid surgery – is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that restores the eye’s natural and youthful appearance.

Eyelid surgery also improves the eyelids’ symmetry and restores vision in the case of sagging upper eyelid skin or eyelid changes caused by Thyroid Eye Disease. Disfiguring conditions like thyroid require highly specialized surgeries.

Dr. Demetris Stavrou performs blepharoplasty procedures at the European Institute of Plastic Surgery in Cyprus, Greece and Malta. Patients usually combine blepharoplasty with rhinoplasty or neck lift.

What is Eyelid or Eye Lift surgery?

Every year, thousands of people undergo eyelift surgery to look better and boost their confidence. Droopy eyes, eyelid puffiness and under-eye ‘bags’ not only make you feel older but can also impair vision.

Eyelid reshaping is a safe and small surgery performed on an outpatient basis. It aims to restore a more youthful shape to the eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat in the upper or lower eyelid – or both.

Common alternative terms are cosmetic eyelid surgery, eye lift, eyelid rejuvenation and blepharoplasty.

The surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the eyelids without pulling the skin too tight or hollowing out the eyelids. This way, the patient gets a more youthful and natural appearance without looking like a different person after the surgery.

Eyelid surgery takes about two hours. The surgeon will suggest general anesthesia or local anesthesia depending on the case.

Blepharoplasty results will last for several years and can be permanent for most patients.

Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty can reshape the upper or the lower eyelid space – or both.

  • Upper Blepharoplasty

The upper eyelid surgery deals with the contours between the eyelashes and the eyebrow. 

As we age, there is usually a hang of the upper eyelids. Other patients might have a congenital swelling of upper eyelids, called ‘drooping eyelids.’ In both situations, eyelid surgery helps to regain a youthful and radiant configuration.

For the upper eyelid, the surgeon uses detailed techniques to reshape the eyelid and remove or reposition the bulging fat pad to its natural place.

  • Lower Blepharoplasty

The lower eyelid surgery deals with contours between the eyelashes and cheek. 

With aging, our youthful visage and appearance in the lower eyelid space fade away. The under-eye ‘bags’ make people look exhausted, even if they are not.

For the lower eyelid, the surgeon removes excess skin, muscle and fat. In some cases, there is a depression running from the inner eye corner to the cheek, also known as ‘tear trough deformity.’ This can be corrected by repositioning the fat in this area with caution to avoid a hollow appearance. 

If the patient is diagnosed with ectropion before the surgery, blepharoplasty surgery will correct this condition too.

What are the benefits of eyelift surgery?

Blepharoplasty helps women and men restore a youthful appearance and get back their confidence. 

  • Smoothens wrinkles of the lower eyelid
  • Restores a fresh, less tired look
  • Reduces sagging skin and bags under the eye
  • Removes excess fat that causes puffiness in the upper eyelids
  • Treats loose skin creating folds in the upper eyelids
  • Corrects droopiness of the lower eyelids
  • Makes patients look younger
  • Improves vision impaired by sagging eyelids

What does the Blepharoplasty procedure involve?

Step 1: Anesthesia

The first procedural step is local anesthesia or general anesthesia performed by a certified anesthesiologist.

Step 2: Incisions

Dr. Stavrou starts the blepharoplasty by marking the individual lines and creases of the eyelids. He then places the incisions within the natural eyelid creases to keep the scars as invisible as possible along the lid’s natural folds. Hence, once patients heal, it is very hard to tell if they have had an eyelid rejuvenation.

  • Upper eyelid blepharoplasty

The surgeon removes extra skin, muscles and fat from the upper eyelids, leaving the right amount of fat behind to create a new, fresh look. In the case of pre-existing upper eyelid hollowness, the surgeon repositions these tissues to fill the hollows.

  • Lower eyelid blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid surgery is a more complicated procedure. The incision hides under the eyelash line reaching beyond the eye’s corner. The surgeon trims away or repositions excess fat, skin and muscle. In the case of an underlying fat bulge, the surgeon performs a transconjunctival approach through the inside of the eye to ensure minimal scarring.

Step 3: Closing incisions

The incisions are closed with exceptional attention to detail using dissolvable or removable sutures. Dr. Stavrou will advise the patient on which method would be most appropriate for their situation.

After the surgery, Dr. Stavrou might apply tiny sterile bandages to the eyelids.

Recovery after Blepharoplasty

The patient might experience slight swelling and bruise after the surgery.

To speed up recovery and relieve discomfort, the patient should use cold compresses and keep their head slightly elevated when lying down. Painkillers prescribed by the surgeon will help relieve further pain.

Eyes might be dry and feel sticky or itchy. Dr. Stavrou will recommend a suitable method to clean the eye area for the days following the surgery. He will also list activities and environments the patient should avoid in the weeks following the blepharoplasty procedure.

The patient may start reading after 2-3 days and return to work after 5-10 days. 

More strenuous activities and alcohol consumption may resume after 3 weeks at least.

The appearance of the eyes will improve gradually 6 days after the surgery.

Skincare and sun protection is necessary during the recovery period. For quick healing, follow the instruction of Dr. Stavrou precisely.

Results are long-term, and the patient will feel and look 6-8 years younger after blepharoplasty.

Where will Eyelid Surgery take place?

Dr. Stavrou performs eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in the EIPS and other accredited medical centers in Cyprus, Greece and Malta.

Am I a good candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Older people whose eyelids can reveal their age or make them look even older are good candidates for eyelid surgery.

Candidates typically suffer from excess eyelid fat, wrinkles and bags under their eyes.

Blepharoplasty is also the appropriate plastic surgery for people who experience visual obstructions due to saggy upper eyelid skin.

Specialized blepharoplasty is ideal for patients who suffer severe disfiguring conditions, including Thyroid Eye Disease.

Blepharoplasty is also the appropriate plastic surgery for people who experience visual obstructions due to saggy upper eyelid skin.

Specialized blepharoplasty is ideal for patients who suffer severe disfiguring conditions, including Thyroid Eye Disease.

A patient can drive in about 5 to 10 days after upper eyelid surgery. That’s because the patient might have a blurry vision during the first days following the procedure. Talk to your surgeon before you start driving again to ensure it is safe to do so.

Lower eyelid surgery can smoothen the wrinkles of the lower eye area. However, experienced surgeons do not pull the skin too tight to avoid a non-natural-looking result.

After the blepharoplasty, the patient can look 6 to 8 years younger.

For most patients, there is no change in vision after blepharoplasty. Only for patients with excess upper eyelid skin, eyelid rejuvenation can restore their sight.

The minimum age for patients who want to undergo eyelid surgery for aesthetic purposes is the late 30s.

For patients who suffer from excess upper eyelid fat, lower lid bags or severe disfiguring conditions, blepharoplasty can be performed in the 20s.
