Facial Surgery

The first signs of aging appear at the girl's level. Face lift also known as ritidectomy, makes it possible to solve the skin from the face and neck, to remove excess fat and to "stretch" the tissues under the skin. So the girl will regain the young and fresh look. Facial lifting may or may not be lifting up to the neck. Usually, to get the best results, facial lifting must be accompanied by cervical lifting.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the indications of a successful facial lifting?

The patients category between 40 and 60 years benefit most from facial lifting. But there are also good results for older people. Facial faults that are solved by facial lifting are:
  • Pronounced Nazogian ditches
  • Loss of well defined mandible line
  • Deep wrinkles and skin on the cheek,
  • Fallen skin and wrinkles in the neck.

How is the facial lifting consultation performed?

You must be prepared to provide your surgeon with complete information about:
  • Previous surgical interviews,
  • Other pathologies present or past,
  • Other treatments followed,
  • Administered medications, including nutritional supplements and herbal remedies.

If you are overweight and intend to have a diet, weight loss can affect the end result.
Your doctor will look at the bone structure and underlying tissues, texture and elasticity of the skin as well as the severity of the facial wrinkles and folds. You will explain the place of the incisions and you will be exposed all the operator plan. You will also be informed about other procedures that can be associated at the same time with facial lifting:
  • Forehead lifting,
  • Eyelid surgery,
  • Nose correction,
  • Chemical peeling or laser resurfacing for fine wrinkles.

What is facial lifting?

There are several technical options. Usually the incision is hidden in the natural contour of the ear and in the hairy area of ​​the head. A small incision may be needed under the chin to remove fat deposits and smooth the fibrous areas of the neck muscles.

The skin is taken off by the underlying tissues and the excess skin is excited, then sutured. In some cases deeper tissues are also repositioned to give the face a more tonic look.

How do I prepare for operation?

Once the date of surgery is established, you will receive instructions on pre and postoperative periods:
  • Avoid certain medicines that may complicate the operation or period of healing: aspirin, other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, anticoagulants, etc.
  • Stop smoking,
  • Let your hair grow so that it can cover incision areas during healing.

You are given pre and postoperative medication so that you feel comfortable at all times. The facial lifting operation is under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. You will be monitored preoperatively throughout the surgical procedure as well as throughout the recovery period.

How will I look and how will I feel right after the facial lifting operation?

You will have the areas where incisions were practiced. You will often have aspirating drainage tubes in the cheek region at the end of which the collector containers are attached. Discomfort is usually minimal, pain can be controlled easily by the medication prescribed by your doctor. Although healing is a process that differs from person to person, you can draw a generally valid line as follows:

First day:
You have to sit with your head on multiple pillows to minimize the appearance of bumps and facial swelling (swelling of the face).

In the first week:
  • Edemating the face reaches the maximum limit and then begins to gradually decrease
  • Remove the suture material
  • You can resume your day-to-day light activities, but you must continue to sleep with your head in a higher position.
  • You can return to the use of makeup

After two weeks:
  • Most of the bumps (bruises) have disappeared
  • You can resume all activities.

After six weeks:
  • You can resume exercise,
  • Face edema decreases gradually
  • Skin sensitivity returns to normal in most cases. Sometimes areas of anesthesia may persist for several months.

UV exposure should be avoided throughout the healing period and protective creams should be used long term.

A number of factors including heredity and lifestyle play an important role in longevity results. Although the aging process continues, most patients are very satisfied with the results for long periods of time.

Throughout the healing ptocess you will benefit from several checkups, occasions where healing is monitored by your surgeon and in the meanwhile you will have the opportunity to get answers to all questions. It is important to keep in touch with your surgeon several months after the facelift surgery .

Although these treatments are very effective, 1% of the patients do not achieve the desired results!
On the days when you feel rested your face's expressions indicate this. Forehead lines may show upset or worry, the wrinkles between the eyebrows usually show anger. "Fallen" eyebrows laterally indicate a tired or sad face.

If you consider that the lines at the forehead do not exactly illustrate the state of mind, lifting the forehead could be the solution to this problem.

This procedure corrects the fallen position of the eyebrows, the frontal horizontal wrinkles and removes the expressions of anxiety and anger that result from these lines.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the forehead lifting indicated in my case?

The forehead lifting is indicated for both women and men, aged between 40 and 60 years. It can also benefit younger people who have inherited the fallen position of the eyebrows. The best candidates must meet the following conditions:
  • Eyed or lowered eyebrows that give a tired or sad look
  • Deep horizontal wrinkles at the forehead
  • Deep wrinkles between eyebrows and sometimes at the top of the nose

This technique should be practiced with great care if you have one of the following conditions:
  • High blood pressure
  • Blood clotting problems
  • The tendency to cheloid scars

What is the pre-operative consultation for forehead lifting?

During this meeting you will be evaluated psychologically and emotionally and physically, and you will explain to your surgeon what you want to get. You will be asked complete information on:
  • Previous surgical interventions
  • Past or present
  • Types of treatments that you have benefited in the past
  • The medication you are currently taking include herbal remedies and nutritional supplements.

Your doctor will assess the bone structure of the face and the soft tissue characteristics. Thickness, texture and elasticity of the skin; And the tone of the frontal muscles and the periorbital region will also be carefully evaluated. Sometimes patients who have excess skin in the upper eyelids do not realize that actually eyebrow pusty is the cause of this shortcoming. Your surgeon will also indicate other procedures that, while practicing at the same time, can give a net superior performance:
  • Face lift that removes excess skin from the middle and lower thirds of the face and neck.
  • Eyelid surgery to remove excess skin from both the upper and lower eyelids.

What is the forehead lifting itself?

The technique chosen depends on your traits, the desired results, and the surgeon's preferences. You will be shown, from the many technical variants, to what your doctor thinks most appropriate. The most used method is the coronal incision and consists in placing an incision in the scalp, from one ear to the other, hidden in the hairy area of ​​the head. Sometimes this incision can be placed right at the level of the hairy line of the forehead. Through this incision, the surgeon will alter or remove the frontal muscle fragments and remove excess skin.

Another method is endoscopic and consists of using a light tube at the end to which a video camera is attached. The endoscope is inserted through small incisions under the skin of the forehead and allows the surgeon to work on internal structures. In some cases, combinations of endoscopic techniques with other techniques may be used
Another technique that uses limited incisions can be practiced without an endoscope. This technique uses two small incisions at the level of the samples by which the eyebrows are lifted, and two other incisions in the upper eyelids to treat the wrinkles between the eyebrows.

If you only want to correct the lines between the eyebrows or the upper nose, this can only be done using the incisions on the upper eyelids, the same as in the case of blepharoplasty.

What are the risks of forehead lifting?

Every year, thousands of women and men benefit from this procedure without experiencing major complications. Your surgeon will inform you both about the risks and benefits of forehead lifting. In the days when you feel rested your face's expressions indicate this. Forehead lines may show upset or worry, the wrinkles between the eyebrows usually show anger. "Fallen" eyebrows laterally indicate a tired or sad face.

If you think the lines at the forehead do not exactly illustrate the state of mind, lifting the forehead could be the solution for that

How do I prepare for the forehead lifting?

Once your intervention date is established, your doctor will provide you with all the information you need for both the preoperative and postoperative period. Some of them are:

Avoiding medication that could interfere with the immediate healing or recovery period.
Stopping smoking at least two weeks before and after surgery.
It is advisable to choose a hairstyle so that the hair covers the incision traces until it is fully cured.

What are post-operative care for forehead lifting?

The surgery is performed in an operating room under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. Your surgeon, anesthetist, and all auxiliary staff will ensure that you have maximum comfort throughout your intervention. The area operated will be covered by dressings; Sometimes drainage tubes are placed at the operating area level to minimize the liquid collection. The postoperative discomfort is kept under control with specific medication. Although each one heals differently, some general lines can be drawn:

On the first day:
At this early stage, you should be sitting with your head in a higher position than the rest of your body, above your heart.

In the first week:
  • Remove the drain tubes
  • You can resume low intensity activities.

After two weeks:
  • Most bumps (bruises) will disappear
  • The suture material is removed
  • You can start using the dyestuffs to cover scarring lines or skin discolorations.
  • You can resume most of the daily activities including light exercise

After three weeks:
  • All daily activities can be resumed, as well as the physical training you want.
  • Edema continues to fall
  • Low-sensitivity areas begin to heal.

Sun exposure should be avoided throughout the healing period and the areas used must be protected with UV blocking creams for indefinite periods.

What should I know about the results of the forehead lifting?

Most of the patients were extremely pleased with the new look. Although the healing process lasts several months, the end result is as expected. A number of factors such as heredity and lifestyle play an important role in the sustainability of results. The process of getting older will continue after surgery. The consultations that your surgeon requires at different time intervals are important in monitoring the healing process. It is good to follow these appointments, even if everything seems to be okay to benefit from the evaluation of the results over a longer period of time.

Although treatment is very effective, however, 1% of patients do not get the desired results!

Besides the forehead lift, which has the effect of lifting the eyebrows, the effect of lifting at this level can be also obtained by a botulinum toxin injection in the cenrtal front area, leaving the sides of the forehead non-injected.

In this way only the sides of the frontal muscle are contracting, creating a lifting effect in the eyebrows.

Another method used in the brow lift is the excision of the skin surplus on the forehead and hiding the scar in the eyebrow area covered by hair. This method is applied with great success especially for men who have hairyer eyebrows.

Although these treatments are very effective, 1% of the patients do not achieve the desired results!
Lip augmentation (lip augmentation) is done with different products. Their diversity is so great that it is almost impossible to review each lip augmenting preparation and its commercial name. What is very important, however, is that some of the products have a high degree of adverse reaction, which if the patient assumes, then the doctor will practice the surgery.

However, there is a preference almost universally accepted in the world of plastic surgeons, namely that hyaluronic acid preparations are the most risk-free and as a result are the most used for lip augmentation.
Lip augmentation can also be done using your own fat through the technique called microlipofilling. Fat is harvested from other areas of the body where it is in excess and transplanted to the lips.
Other lip augmentation options are surgical excision and suture at the insertion line between lip blush and normal skin. At this level, a postoperative scar will be very little visible
Moreover, the whitish scar that will result will result in better contouring of the lips giving them a special shine. This technique applies to selected patients where the distance between the nose and the lips is higher than normal
Another lip augmentation technique is the technique of "flaps of advancement," namely, inside the mouth, at the mouth of the mouthpiece one can imagine and inculcate a few flaps of advancement that help bring and red the lip of the lip from the inside to the outside. This is how the lips grow. This technique applies to selected cases, to patients where nose and lips are not too large.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it the ultimate surgical result for lip augmentation?

The result of lip augmentation surgery is definitive. Ideally, any surgical lip augmentation technique should be followed by a hyaluronic acid or fat injection technique so as to achieve an increase in volume.

Is the enlargement of the lips a painful intervention?

Surgery is done with general or local anesthesia. Inside the mouth or the lip of the lips are put a few threads that will have to be removed after a few days. Postoperative scarring is not disturbing but must be avoided by exposure to UV.

What are the risks of lip augmentation surgery?

Risks are the same as for any surgery. Local risks are very low and are represented by local bleeding and haematomas.

After removing the suture material, the patient is instructed to use creams to model the scars that will be used for several months. The final result of the infection occurs after 6 months when the scar becomes definitive.

What are the contraindications to lip augmentation surgery?

Contraindications include serious blood diseases, serious dermatological or infectious diseases, diabetes, serious infections in the orbital or dental area. Also, patients who are recommended and apply these surgeries should be carefully selected to get the best results.

What are the indications of lip augmentation surgery?

The technique of excision and suture of lip margins is generally applied to people (women or men) with extremely small lips where there is enough tegument in excess in the perioral area. The technique of advancing flaps applies to people with small lips where there is not too much tear in perioral excess, meaning the lip-nose distance and mentally-distant distance are smaller than normal. Sometimes the two techniques can be associated to get the best results

Although treatment is very effective, however, 1% of patients do not get the desired results!
Microlipofiling technique addresses to all facial or body areas that need surplus volume. The technique involves using its own fat to fill an area that needs extra volume. Fat is harvested from other areas, excess in adipose tissue such as the abdomen, thighs, inner knee region, and is processed by washing and settling.

Using the injection microcapsules, it is possible to transplant fat into the region of the nasogeneous grooves, lips, cheeks or in the malaria and genial region (ie cheeks) to give the skin a tonic and youthful look. Usually overfilling of those areas is performed, if the patient agrees, knowing that 30-50% of the transplanted fat will resorb in a few months.

Another option is to repeat the procedure after 6 months to get a result as close as possible to the one you want. The same technique is applied to other areas of the body such as:
  • Correction of depressive scars
  • Correction of breast contour after implant mammary augmentation surgery, in a very weak patient where implant margins can splash
  • Augmentation of the beehive area
  • Enlarge gambiere circumference
  • Liposculpture in any area of ​​the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does healing take after microlipofilling?

Immediately after surgery, the area may have mild bruises that will pass in a few days. Also, post operative edema may occur, giving the feeling that the area is more swollen than it should be. It is important that at least 3 weeks after the operation do not practice the massage of the operating area because any massage can lead to massive resorption of fat. There may be areas that are slightly asymmetrical, or small nodules under the skin may appear. All these phenomena are normal and resolve over time.

What are the risks of this surgery?

The risks of the operation are unwanted bleeding and bruising. Although it may seem a mild surgery, important internal structures may be damaged, so this technique should only be practiced by plastic surgeons who are over-specialized in this field. There is no form of dermatologists or other medical specialties!

Is microlipofiling a painful intervention?

The operation is not painful because it is practiced with local or general anesthesia (if necessary). Immediate after surgery, local cold applications and anti-algic medication are indicated.

How will the fat collection area remain for microlipofilling?

The area where fat is harvested and which is most often represented by the abdomen, the incision is point-shaped, placed in the navel for the least visible. The area where it is harvested can cover the bark that heals in a few days.

Are scars visible after microlipofilling?

Microinjections are made with cannulas that are slightly thicker than a syringe needle. Therefore, there is no scar on any level. If there are inherited disorders of the scarring process, it is good to abstain from any kind of surgery.

What are the contraindications of microlipofilling?

The contraindications of the method are serious blood coagulation diseases, serious dermatological diseases, eating disorders with cachexia, diabetes, serious infectious diseases.

After microlipofiling is the massage necessary?

Massage is an absolute indication, after microlipofilling interventions, if small "retouching" is required, but not immediately. After about 3 weeks, if we want to model an area that has asymmetries or is excess, we can start the massage. In larger areas where microlipofillation was practiced, for example in buttocks, massage represents the technique of uniformity of the final result.

Although treatment is very effective, however, 1% of patients do not get the desired results!
The nose is the most prominent feature of the face and is a major factor in defining the balance and harmony of the face. When the nose is disproportionate compared to other face features, the overall appearance may be compromised. In most cases the characteristics of the nose are the result of heredity. Sometimes changes in the nose are the result of the traumas that occur later. If you are disturbing the size or shape of your nose, cosmetic surgery may be the ideal solution. Rhinoplasty improves nose size by rejuvenating facial harmony and relying on self-confidence.
  • Total rhinoplasty means the correction of all nasal structures, both cartilage and bone.
  • Partial rhinoplasty means the correction of cartilage structures only and requires a shorter period of recovery than in the case of total rhinoplasty.
  • Rhinoplasty per primam is usually done by the closed method, the method in which all the incisions are inside the nostrils and there is no external scar.

  • In case of nose reinterrations, corrections can be made either by another closed rhinoplasty but most often by open rhinoplasty, the method where the approach is made visible by practicing a minimally visible incision.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is rhinoplasty (aesthetic surgery of the nose)?

    Aesthetic surgery of the nose or rhinoplasty is surgery to improve the shape of the nose. This technique can be modeled:
    • The size of the nose in the context of facial balance
    • Nose width
    • Profile of the nose, with excitements or depressions of the nasal pyramid
    • The nose
    • The size of the nostrils
    • Nasal asymmetry

    These traits are generally caused by heredity or the various traumas at this level. The other facial structures, in particular a small chin, bulky cheeks or lack of prominence of the lower jaw also contribute to the asymmetry of the facial proportions. In these cases nose surgery is practiced in combination with the facial implant. This procedure is also used if the airways are obstructed. Operator time is required after the growth process has stopped. Candidates for this procedure are:
    • People with good health
    • Non-smoking
    • People with a positive and well-informed attitude to possible outcomes

    What should a rhinoplasty (nose surgery) start with?

    Consultation with the plastic surgeon is the first step in getting all the information you want. This includes:
    • Discussions about the case and its evaluation
    • Types of interventions
    • Period of recovery and potential risks and complications
    • Surgeon's recommendations for you

    What is evaluation of rhinoplasty (aesthetic surgery of the nose)?

    Overall health has an increased impact on the results of rhinoplasty. This will be carefully evaluated. You will be asked about your medical history, other interventions, allergies and drug treatments.

    What are the risks for rhinoplasty surgery (aesthetic surgery of the nose)?

    The decision to consult a plasticist and follow his instructions is an important step in minimizing the risks of these interventions.

    What is the actual surgery for rhinoplasty (aesthetic surgery of the nose)?

    Rhinoplasty is an individualized intervention that takes into account the specific features of each girl. Your surgeon will evaluate the case and describe your potential surgical techniques. These techniques can improve:
    • Alteration of the shape of the nasal pyramid
    • Reducing the size and thickness of your nose
    • Removal of nose tip
    • Reducing the width and size of the nails
    • Adjusting the angle between the nose and the upper lip

    If you want a very symmetrical nose, you should keep in mind that any face has a certain degree of asymmetry. That's why the nose you want is the one that best fits your face. The airway discouragement is also very personalized; Requires a careful assessment of nasal, airway and breathing structures.

    What are the preparations for rhinoplasty surgery (aesthetic surgery of the nose)?

    Your surgeon will explain what the recommended surgical procedure is. You will also be given pre-operative instructions that include:
    • Pre-surgery considerations, medication and clinical and paraclinical tests
    • Specific information on anesthesia
    • Postoperative care

    • The risks associated with this intervention are infectious or bleeding at this level. Nose surgery is a procedure where the aesthetic aspect is not predictable and in some cases a second intervention may be necessary to get the desired result.

      The surgery takes place in a surgical room under general or local anesthesia. Your surgeon and nurses will provide the comfort and safety you need throughout the duration of the procedure.

      What is the postoperative period in the case of rhinoplasty (aesthetic surgery of the nose)?

      At the end of the surgery, a metallic or gypsum metal nipple was applied to your nose and a special dressing. You will receive instructions that include:
      • Medication to help heal and reduce the infectious potential
      • Next consultation with your surgeon

      • What is the healing process in the case of rhinoplasty (aesthetic surgery of the nose)?

        Initial postoperative symptomatology includes: edema, echimotis, headache and discomfort, which can be controlled with specific medication and cold local applications. Your surgeon will instruct you to keep your head taller than the rest of your body, both day and night, until your local swelling disappears. The resumption of normal, light activities is possible as soon as you feel fit. Typically, nasal dressings and thighs are removed in the first week, sometimes athletes should be worn for up to three weeks. The use of cosmetic dyes can camouflage bruises and skin irritations at this level. The healing process continues several weeks after surgery. Protective creams against UV are recommended. Continuous protection against the possible trauma that may occur at this level for at least 4-5 months is necessary.

        When do the definitive results of rhinoplasty (aesthetic surgery of the nose) come true?

        It is believed that about one year we have the definitive outcome of the intervention. In general, rhinoplasty results are permanent; However, the nasal cartilage, the base support of the nose, is in a continuous process of reshaping, therefore the result may change with time.

        Although treatment is very effective, however, 1% of patients do not get the desired results!
Otoplasty consists of correcting the size of the auricular pavilion, its shape, and its distance from the skull. Otoplasty also corrects the abnormalities of the ear lobe and the distance between it and the skull.

There are several correction techniques, the most widespread is the modeling of reliefs at the auricular pavilion. This modeling is often accompanied by the excision of a portion of the cartilage and tegument behind the ear so that all scars will be very poorly visible.

A balance must be maintained between the proportions of the auricular pavilion and its distance from the skull.

The operation is under general or local anesthesia and is followed by an immediate healing period of 12 days, at which time the suture material is removed.

It is necessary for the next 2 months after the surgery to carry an elastic waist that maintains the position of the ear of the skull as close as possible, knowing that as soon as they are left free, within a few months, they will be a little longer. The end result of the operation is six months.

The scars are located on the back of the ears, in a slightly visible area, usually easily covered with hair.

Although seemingly an easy intervention, the technique must be well received and practiced by experienced surgeons, otherwise the result will be unfavorable. Reinterventions of correction are more difficult due to the extremely friable structures in this area and especially due to the depletion of the tegument and cartilage resources in the previous unsuccessful operations.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks of otoplasty surgery (ear correction)?

The surgery has the risk of any surgery. The ear is a friable structure, very rich in cartilage, which must be handled and treated in a more special way. If the cartilage reserves in the ear are exhausted for various reasons, there are no other sources of cartilage as good as the only alternative to the costal cartilage. The ear is an extremely important reserve of cartilage and for nose and septa at the nose .

What are the indications for otoplasty (ear correction)?

Otoplasty is addressed to all patients who have ejected ears, that is to say the so-called "clapauge ears", those in which the auricular pavilion is flat or those whose ears are too large. Correction can also benefit patients who have too much lobe of the ears, too far away from the skull or those with too large or too large earrings.

What are the contraindications to otoplasty surgery (ear correction)?

Otoplasty is contraindicated in patients with severe blood coagulation, severe infectious or dermatological diseases, those with scarring, diabetic, cardiac, etc.

Is otoplasty (ear correction) a painful operation?

The operation takes place under general or local anesthesia, the pain that is later felt can be easily counteracted with analgesic medication. After about 12-14 days remove the suture material and the patient can make a bath.

Where will the scars be after otoplasty (ear correction)?

Scars are placed behind the ears, where the retro-urinary fold is naturally present. Once they heal, there will be very few visions remaining as very thin white lines. It is useful to use ointments that shape scars for a long time, at least 6 months.

Although treatment is very effective, however, 1% of patients do not get the desired results!
The eyes are the most expressive trait of the face, they capture attention and transmit emotions and feelings. Through them, we not only see others but others see us. Our experiences, the way we feel physically and emotionally reflect in our eyes. Unfortunately, hereditary factors and signs of aging have a big impact on the eyes, so they do not always reflect what we really feel.

If the excess skin of the upper eyelid is disturbing, or the fallen skin at this level will make you look sad or angry, the "bags" under the eyes will make you look tired, then the surgery of the eyelids is a procedure indicated for you. Corrects the excess of skin and fat that forms those "bags" both in the upper and lower eyelids, redefining the youthful and energetic appearance of the face.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)?

Also called blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure that corrects the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids:
  • Fallen skin or ptoza at the level of the upper eyelid, sometimes affecting vision
  • Deposits of excess fat from the upper eyelid
  • The "bags" under the eyes
  • Lower eyelid penis that highlights the "white" of the eye under iris
  • Excessive skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

These conditions occur naturally due to the aging process as well as the heredity. This is why blepharoplasty has positive results for young people who have inherited problems at this level. Eyelid surgery often targets an adult, male or female, with healthy facial tissue and tonic muscles, with a real desire to improve the look of the skin around the eyes.
Ideal candidates are:
  • Healthy people who do not have vital risk illnesses or other diseases that interfere with the healing process.
  • Non-smoking
  • Positive people with a real desire to improve their look.

The following conditions contraindicate surgery at this level:
  • Diseases such as glaucoma, "dry eyes", retinal detachment
  • Thyroid Disease: Graves Disease, Hyper, or Hypothyroidism
  • Cardiovascular diseases, hypertension or other circulatory system diseases
  • Diabetes

What is the first step in preparing for blepharoplasty (eyelid correction)?

A consultation with the plastic surgeon is the first step towards such an intervention. During this consultation you will receive all useful information:
  • About the desired purpose and an assessment of your case
  • Types of intervention
  • Possible risks and complications

What is the assessment for blepharoplasty (eyelid correction)?

The overall health status has an increased impact on the quality of the results. Both your physical and emotional health will be carefully evaluated by your surgeon. Your success, your safety and your satisfaction depend on:
  • The degree of communication with your surgeon
  • Correct and complete history, including current medication, vitamins, food supplements, alcohol, smoking, drug use
  • The degree of seriousness in respecting the instructions given by your doctor

What is Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Correction)?

The procedure is individualized. Your anatomical data is carefully evaluated, what you want to correct, the causes of this "defect", the real possibilities to get the desired result. Eyelid surgery dramatically improves facial appearance, correcting eyelids, "bags" under the eyes, muscle repositioning, redistribution of fat deposits and fat excretion.

Eyelid surgery can be associated with other face-to-face interventions to achieve the desired results. "Skin resurfacing" is a technique of using the laser to obtain a further improvement in the appearance of the skin around the eyes. Lifting eyebrows is indicated when their positioning is dropped. Medium face lifting of the face can be happily associated with blepharoplasty, which can use the same incisions as blepharoplasty. Face or neck lifting can also be associated with blepharoplasty.

How Do I Prepare For Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Correction)?

You will receive complete and accurate information about the procedure you want. You will be given instructions regarding the preoperative day:
  • General considerations, list of preoperative investigations
  • Avoiding medications that may interfere with recovery and healing
  • Anesthesia data.

The risks associated with this intervention include late recovery, infection of the wound, temporary impairment of vision. There may also be difficulties in closing the eyelid, usually temporarily. Ectropion ("fall" of the lower eyelid margin), also temporarily, is a complication that occurs quite rarely. All these add to the risks of anesthesia.

The surgery will take place in an operating room under local or general anesthesia. After surgery, a special ointment and cold compresses will be applied to your eyes. Postoperative care includes techniques to clean the area, indications of medication to prevent infection or excessive inflammation of the area being operated.

How does healing work after blepharoplasty (eyelid correction)?

After an initial period in which the operative area is edematised (swollen) with acute periorbital bruises, a gradual regression process of these phenomena follows. You will be trained to keep your head above your body, as much as possible in the first postoperative week. Eyes should be protected from strong light or wind by wearing sunglasses. Incisions heal in 5-10 days. Suture material is suppressed 5 days postoperatively, usually. After this stage you can start using the facials to camouflage the incision lines. The healing process continues for a few weeks, during which time the edema gradually disappears and the visual function returns to normal.

The final results appear several weeks postoperatively and are very durable. Non-stop UV protection, keeping your sunglasses permanently helps keep your results for long periods of time.

Although treatment is very effective, however, 1% of patients do not get the desired results!
Small volume deficiencies that exist at different levels of the face can be repaired by using volume-enhancing products such as injectables, in-house fat, or when there are volume deficiencies due to lack of bone structure, implants will be used. Of the latter, mantle implants are most often used to correct the appearance of the face or chin profile.

Facial implants are harder or more malleable silicone products, which can also be "cut" to match the acceptor area as well. They are introduced into the respective areas by the minimum incisions that are usually located at the mouth. In the case of mesonial implants, the incision is either in the inferior buccal vestibule or in the submessage to the skin in a very well hidden natural fold.

In the case of malignant implants, the incisions are made at the level of the upper buccal vestibule and, through a subperiosteal approach, these implants are inserted into areas where the deficiency is present.

The operations are done with general anesthesia and the healing period is a few days. Later for several weeks, it takes a great deal of hygiene at the girl's level, because any small blow can mobilize in an unwanted direction the mental or malignant implant.

It should be kept in the position where it was inserted during surgery for a period of 4-6 weeks, enough to strengthen the scarring process around the implant.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the mentonian implant (honey correction) indicated?

Facial implants are indicated to restore harmony and ideal facial proportions if there are malformations of bone structures at this level. Mentonal implants are indicated to compensate for the lack of bone prominence from the chin. The results are extremely good with a very high degree of patient satisfaction. They can be inserted in both women and men, regardless of age or race. The size of the implant is established preoperatively, and readjusted intraoperatively when appropriate.

What are the contraindications of the menton implant (correction of the chin)?

The contraindications are severe blood, dermatological, diabetes, infectious or autoimmune diseases.

Is the menton implant (hairs correction) a painful intervention?

The operation is performed under general anesthesia, postoperatively pains being counteracted with analgesics. Subsequently, the implant should be kept in place where it was inserted with special dressings to avoid mobilization.

Mentonal implant (horn correction) has a definitive result?

It is possible that after a large number of 10-15 years, due to natural or pathological bone resorption, a new surgical replacement of the existing implant will be needed with another larger size to compensate for even greater volume depletion. Sometimes this technique can be asocially transferring autologous fat for a surplus even more volume, the technique called microlipofiling.

What are the postoperative care for the menton implant (correction of the chin)?

Postoperatively the dressings will be changed to 2 to 3 days, the suture material is extracted at 7-10 days. Antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medication is given for at least 5 days.
