Blepharoplasty is an intervention to remove excess cutis at the level of the upper eyelid and adipose hernias of the lower eyelid. Skin slackness or blepharochalasis associated or not with adipose hernias (bags) is generally a phenomenon typical of skin ageing. It generally manifests itself after 50 years but if of a congenital character it may develop earlier. The intervention consists of removing excess cutis and fat via a small incision made at the level of the upper eyelid orbit groove or under the lower ciliary margin, giving the eye a younger and more harmonious expression. Belpharoplasty is executed as a Day-Hospital operation under local anaesthetic. The intervention lasts around 1 hour for upper blepharoplasty and for around 1 1/2 hours for lower blepharoplasty. The stitches are removed after 5 days and the patient is socially presentable after around 10 days.
