Upper Eyelid

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty

dr hayot’s technique

« In the case of a heavy, drooping eyelid, due to excess skin or fat, I perform an upper eyelid laser blepharoplasty.
Performed with a laser scalpel to help with the precision of the surgery, it results in a finer scar and less bruising. »

Advantages

  • Enhanced precision with the CO2 laser treatment and the operating microscope,
  • Invisible scar (incision in the upper eyelid fold),
  • Less hematoma and bruising.

Complications and risks

  • Adapting the incision for different eye shapes
  • Assessing the amount of skin to remove to avoid lagophthalmos (difficulty in closing the eyelid).
  • Positioning the scar correctly so that it is perfectly hidden in the eyelid fold.
  • Patients must avoid sun exposure for three weeks.
  • Patients must not wear make-up until the stitches have been removed.

Practical information

  • Anaesthetic : potentiated local (neuroleptanalgesy)
  • Length of the procedure : less than one hour
  • Hospitalization : ambulatory
  • Downtime : 6 days (stitches removed on 6th day).
