  Eyelids - Blepharoplasty   - Cabrera Plástica & Estética Córdoba


Aging eyelids due to age occurs by the loss of skin elasticity and fat accumulation with two consequences resulting:

Sad looking appearance, due to the fall of upper eyelid skin above your natural crease, especially on the lateral side.

Appearance of tired face, by relaxing the lower periorbital skin with visible wrinkles and appearance of puffines in the lower eyelid fat.


What is a Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?

A blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed on the eyelids (upper/lower). Is the most common facial rejuvenation surgery made by Dr. Cabrera with a great experience. For upper eyelids, Dr. Cabrera uses a technique that achieves an outcome very natural, avoiding the appearance of operated eye. For lower eyelids, Dr. Cabrera uses transconjuntival blefaroplasty (internal approach), in order to avoid the possibe complications of lower eyelid scarring, so as not to leave visible scars.

Upper blepharoplasty usually takes around one hour. A lower blepharoplasty (transconsjuntival) lats between and hour and hour and a half.

What question should I ask to my surgeon if I am thinking to have a blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?

Questions that you must ask to your surgeon include certification (Member of the Spanish Society of Plastic, Aesthetic, and Reconstructive Surgery), years in practice and specialization in the facial aesthetic surgery. You must be informed about all the risks and complications with this surgery.

In what hospital the surgery should be place?

All our procedures are performed in Hospital San Juan de Dios de Cordoba (Spain). This hospital is located in a wonderful area in Cordoba, near the historic old quarter. This hospital, which is fully equipped with the most advanced and qualified staff, is leader in the private health sector in Cordoba.

What type of anesthesia will be used for a blepharoplasty?

For upper blepharoplasty we use local anesthesia in all the cases. For lower transconjuntival blefaroplasty we usually uses local anesthesia plus sedation.

Should I stop taking any medication before my blepharoplasty?

If you take any medication you should continue to take it, even on the day of your surgery. However, if you take aspirin or any of its derivatives you should stop taking it 14 days before the surgery to reduce the risk of bleeding.
