The aim of plastic surgery in general is the renovation and/or the remodeling of the face and the silhouette of subjects in good health..
This is different from reconstructive and repair surgery, which is to restore what nature, disease or a trauma has taken away or deformed.
Only doctors qualified in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery and registered by the order are allowed to practice this specialty.
There are many techniques and non surgical alternatives in cosmetic surgery which can be proposed according to each case.
Eyelid plastic surgery, Bordeaux
The eye facelift, or blepharoplasty, rejuvenates the appearance of the surrounding area of the eyes, for a more youthful, rested and alert look. Droopy eyelids are a major reason why some people consider eyelid surgery to remove and tighten excess eyelid skin.
This surgery can often be associated with other facelifts or procedures such as lipostructure, botox or hyaluronic acid injections in order for instance to fill in the "valley of the tears".
This simple procedure involves local or general anesthesia, in "ambulatory", and the scars are invisible.
Various techniques are possible and adapted to each patient, for both upper or lower eyelids, bags, black circles, the "valley of the tears"...
Some people may need to see an ophthalmologist prior to the surgery.
