THE LEADING HOSPITAL GROUP FOR HEALTH CARE AND MEDICAL TOURISM IN LOS CABOS, MEXICO
Eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty or Eye Lift, is one of the more popular cosmetic surgery procedures, to lift drooping upper eyelids and/or remove puffy bags below the eyes. Excess fat and skin are removed to help create a more rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes. May also be performed for Asian patients that lack the fold in the upper eyelid, and wish to change to Western features. This technique is known as Double Eyelid Surgery or Blepharoplasty Asian.
Eyelid surgery will not remove crow's feet, or other facial wrinkles, or erase dark circles under the eyes, this is normally done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. A suitable candidate for eyelid surgery is a person of good health, regardless of age and sex, who have excess skin on their eyelids and/or bulging skin due to the protrusion of fatty bags below the eyes.
Dr. Marco Marroquin is a board certified cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon who specializes in eye lift surgery at Saint Luke's Hospital. He uses the latest and most advanced techniques and technology, and blends surgical skills with artistic talent to provide excellent results at the most affordable prices. Costs are less than 55% of what you would pay in the United States.

Before your eye surgery procedure, you will meet with the surgeon for a medical evaluation at which time you can discuss what you want, and get a feedback from the surgeon. The surgery will be performed on an outpatient basis, on average will take 2 hours and is done under local anesthesia and sedation.
To minimize scarring, incisions are made in the natural lines of the eyes, in the creases of the upper lids and directly below the lashes of the lower lids. If only excess fat from the lower lids needs to be removed, the surgeon may make the incisions inside the lower lids, leaving no visible scars. After the incisions have been made, the skin is separated from the fat and the muscles. The excess fat, muscle and skin are trimmed away to remodel the eyelids to achieve the desired results.
The incisions are closed with very fine sutures that usually can be removed within 2 to 7 days. After surgery the surgeon may apply an ointment and small bandages to the eyes. You may also be prescribed an antibiotic to prevent infection. To help minimize swelling and bruising, patients are instructed to elevate the head and use cold compresses for several days.
All surgery carries some level of risk, however with eye lift surgery the risks are usually minor and infrequent.
Some of the complications may include double or blurred vision for a few days, post-operative bleeding, hematoma, infection, watery eyes, dryness and irritation to the eyes, difficult in opening or closing the eyelids, and reaction to anesthesia. Risks can be minimized by following the surgeon's advice before and after surgery.
