Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the eyelids by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle. It is typically used to treat the following conditions:
- Sagging or drooping upper eyelids: The skin around the eyes can lose elasticity and begin to sag, creating a tired or aged appearance. Blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids, creating a more youthful and refreshed look.
- Puffy or baggy lower eyelids: The lower eyelids can also develop bags or puffiness due to the accumulation of fat or fluid. Blepharoplasty can remove the excess fat and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of bags and puffiness.
- Excess skin or wrinkles around the eyes: Some people may develop fine lines, wrinkles, or excess skin, creating a tired or aged appearance. Blepharoplasty can remove the excess skin and smooth out wrinkles, creating a more youthful and refreshed look.
- Functional problems with the vision: In some cases, excess skin on the upper eyelids can droop down and obstruct the vision, making it difficult to see. Blepharoplasty can be performed in these cases to improve the patient’s vision.
Blepharoplasty is a standard procedure that can help improve the appearance and function of the eyelids. It is typically performed by a qualified oculoplastic surgeon and can provide long-lasting results.
However, not everyone may want to undergo surgery or may not be a candidate for it due to various reasons.
There are many non-surgical alternatives to Blepharoplasty, including:
- Cosmetic injectables: Cosmetic injectables is a popular injectable treatment that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes by relaxing the muscles that cause them.
- Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers can add volume to the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles and bags.
- Chemical peels: Chemical peels can help to improve the texture and appearance of the skin around the eyes by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells.
- Laser resurfacing: Laser resurfacing can improve the appearance of the skin around the eyes by stimulating collagen production and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Radiofrequency treatments: Radiofrequency treatments use energy to tighten the skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles.
- Microcurrent therapy: Microcurrent therapy involves using low-level electrical currents to stimulate facial muscles, which can help tighten and tone the skin around the eyes.
Using Plasma Plexr Pro:
Clinica Fai is the first clinic in India to use Plasma Plexr Pro to use Plasma Plexr Pro to undertake non-surgical Blepharoplasty. Our chief surgeon Dr Shubhra Goel is a key opinion leader for Plasma Plexr Pro in India. Plexr pro from GMV Italy, which is what we use at Clinica Fai, is the first FDA approved Plexr in the world.
Plasma Plexr Pro is a non-surgical device that uses plasma energy to tighten and lift the skin around the eyes. It creates a small electrical arc between the device and the skin, producing a controlled micro-trauma that stimulates the body’s natural healing response.
During the treatment, the device is held just above the skin’s surface, and a series of tiny dots are created using plasma energy. These dots are strategically placed to create a tightening effect, which can reduce the appearance of excess skin and wrinkles around the eyes.
Plasma Plexr Pro is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed without anaesthesia or incisions. The treatment typically takes around 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the area’s extent.
After the treatment, the skin may be slightly red and swollen, and some scabbing or crusting as the skin heals. It is essential to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure the best results and avoid complications.
It’s important to note that while Plasma Plexr Pro can be effective for some patients, it may not be suitable for everyone. It’s recommended to consult with a qualified practitioner to determine if Plasma Plexr Pro is the right option for you based on your individual needs and concerns.
While many non-surgical treatments are available, they may not provide the same results as Blepharoplasty, but they can still help improve the appearance of the eyelids and the skin around the eyes. It’s recommended to consult with a qualified oculoplastic surgeon to determine which option is best for you based on your individual needs and concerns.
