Your eyes are the focal point of your face and reflect a lot about who you are, however they are also the first place to show signs of ageing. This is why eyelid lifts or blepharoplasty is one of the the most popular cosmetic procedures at the renowned Cirumed Clinic, Marbella.
As you age, the skin around your eyes loses its elasticity, while the muscles become slack. Your skin can develop into flabby folds on your upper eyelids and severe creases under your lower lids. As the muscles become looser, the fat around your eye may also protude, thus making your lower eyelids appear baggy.
Ageing not only affects our physical appearance but also our sense of well being. If you have bags and excess skin under your eyes that make you look tired and worn, it gives a false impression of how you feel. Today, however, there are surgical techniques designed specifically for the removal of that ‘tired’ look. This procedure can change not only your physical appearance but your emotional perspective. Blepharoplasty, (or an eyelid lift) is an operation on either the upper or the lower eyelids designed to remove excess skin and fat. It is one of the most common operations performed by the talented surgeons at Cirumed Clinic, Marbella.
Dr. Alexander Aslani and Dr. Manuel Ortiz Abello are the consulting surgeons at Cirumed Clinic, Marbella. Both also work in the department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive surgery at the Hospital Quiron, Málaga. Dr.Aslani is the chairman of the department and at present the only non-hispanic surgeon to chair a formal surgical department in Spain, while Dr.Ortiz Abello is a specialist in facial plastic surgery, head and neck surgery, and is the principal consultant of the department of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery in Quiron, Málaga.
Both surgeons boast nearly 50 years of surgical experience between them. In Cirumed Clinic, Marbella, they set out to combine their years of international experience together with the most modern plastic surgery techniques.
THE EYELID LIFT
Blepharoplasty is a relatively short, safe procedure. In the upper eyelid a blepharoplasty is designed primarily to improve the aged, tired appearance caused by the redundant fold of skin that descends over the eyelid with age. In the lower eyelid a blepharoplasty tightens the skin and muscle and removes the excess fat or ‘bag’. It can also be used to correct vision problems due to sagging eyelids. Dr. Manuel Ortiz Abello explains, “With the latest techniques in eye lid corrections, which includes fat transfer fillers, endolaser, and plasma cells application, combined with the treatment itself, this procedure has advanced phenomenally in the past few years. We are achieving results like never before.”
Dr. Alexander Aslani adds, “The latest technology used for this treatment gives the patient no discomfort at all, everything is processed under local anaesthetics with an immediate recovery. Patients can go home the same day and the laser technique makes bruising minimal. This procedure rejuvenates the face with natural results – hence it being one the most popular cosmetic facial procedures in our practice.”
Although Dr. Manuel Ortiz Abello is the expert and specialist on aesthetic facial corrections, all surgeries are processed with both surgeons working side-by-side, giving patients maximum security.
Blepharoplasty makes it possible to correct many flaws and signs of premature ageing that can undermine selfconfidence. By changing how you look, it can help change how you feel about yourself.
