Blepharoplasty in Madrid
The blepharoplasty in Madrid is an effective intervention to look younger by getting rid of the baggy eyelids and the under-eye bags. It is a safe surgical procedure with spectacular results in only one hour.
We explain you in this page how do we do a blepharoplasty at Instituto Médico del Prado, what is its proceeding like, its post-surgery period and, of course, its price.
What is the blepharoplasty
With a blepharoplasty we reduce the excess of skin under the eye contours, as well as the dark circles and the eyelids. It can have medical purposes, like an eyelid blocking a complete eyesight, but normally it is a plastic surgery procedure.
We take out the excess of fat to get rid of the ugly bags under the eyes.. The surgeon uses an electric scalpel to perform a tiny hole from where the fat is extracted.
This is not a major surgery, so its recovery period is short. However, it is extremely important to get a surgeon specialized in this area, because it is a very sensitive one. A bad execution of the blepharoplasty could, for instance, restrain our capacity to close the eyes.
The blepharoplasty proceeding
For the blepharoplasty we use general anesthesia, specially to be sure that the patient is relaxed through all the process. From here, there are two methods to perform the blepharoplasty: the internal one and the external one.
Internally, the surgeon performs an incision in the intern side of the eyelid to extract the fat from there. Externally, the cut is done under the eyelashes. Both methods are equally efficient: the choice depends on the patient’s situation.
This proceeding usually lasts less than 3 or even 2 hours, including the administration of anesthesia. Its post-surgery period is not long: on day 4th the patient can live normally. Until then, he/she has only to keep the head up and apply cold pads regularly.
If stitches have been required, these will be retired 48 hours later, approximately.
The blepharoplasty results
The blepharoplasty is a very effective surgery: with only some hours of proceeding, we get incredible results for years. With it we can correct a droopy eyelid and the under-eye bags, treating two eye conditions with one and only surgery.
It is extremely important to know that the doctor who will perform the surgery must be the same one performing the diagnosis. This is the only way to be sure that, from the beginning to the end, a professional will be dealing with our case and taking care of us.
The blepharoplasty price
The price of a blepharoplasty is 3,200 euros (taxes included). This cost includes the diagnosis performed by Dr. Arenas, the surgery room, the general anesthesia, the future treatments (if needed) and the follow-up meetings.
