WHAT IS A BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a procedure that takes about an hour, in which, through imperceptible scars, excess skin with the upper eyelid is removed with age and the bags that form under the lower eyelid are corrected. that give an aspect of permanent fatigue, thus achieving a rejuvenation of the look, without changing the expression of the eyes.
It is a procedure that is performed under local anesthesia if it is the upper eyelid or with general anesthesia if it is associated with surgery of the lower eyelids.
WHAT IS A PEDIA OR RAISE OF COLUMBUS OF THE CEJA?
The fall of the eyebrow and in particular the more lateral portion, which is known as the tail of the eyebrow, is a frequent situation that patients do not usually perceive, but which causes the upper eyelid to look droopy and the eyes look aged.
The pexia or lifting of the eyebrow tail, is a small procedure, which takes only 40 minutes and consists of placing a few points that raise the position of the eyebrow, causing the hanging skin of the upper eyelid to rise, thus achieving the eye looks more expressive and young.
The scar of this procedure can be located under the hair or just above the eyebrow, with a scar almost imperceptible.
Depending on the technique chosen, it can be performed under local or general anesthesia.
WHAT DOES AN AMAYAPEEL® OF LOWER PERIPHERALS CONSIST OF?
The annoying wrinkles under the eyes usually appear at our 40´s and are one of the situations that first reveal that the years have come and that aging is beginning.
Contrary to popular belief, lower eyelid surgery does not correct these wrinkles, it only removes the bags under the eyes. To eliminate these uncomfortable lines there are many ineffective treatments, however the only one that infallibly disappears is a deep peeling that has become popular among our patients under the name of AmayaPeel ®.
This treatment of only 10 minutes and that does not require anesthesia, consists of the application of organic acids on the skin of the eyelid, to eliminate wrinkled and damaged skin, forming a crust that when falling carries with it all the wrinkled and damaged skin , revealing a renewed, young skin without wrinkles. This technique also eliminates the dark pigmentation of the eyelid and fat lumps that sometimes appear with age.
A week later, once the scab has fallen, the skin appears free of wrinkles, but with a redness that will take some months to disappear to leave a completely normal and rejuvenated skin.
In patients with greater aging, this treatment can extend to the crow feet area or to the entire face with surprising changes of up to 20 years less.
WHEN TO RETURN HOME?
These procedures require a recovery of 3 to 7 days, enough time to return to work. For patients traveling from other cities or from abroad, a one-week stay in Bogota is recommended once the points have been removed.
It is necessary to arrive two days before the procedure for an adequate preparation.
