Low Cost Blepharoplasty – Before-After Photos
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is for patients who have loose or sagging skin that creates folds, excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness, droopiness of the upper eyelids and/or fine wrinkles in the lower eyelids — making you look older and tired.
Eyelid Surgery in Colombia - Your New LookMost patients are pleased with the results of eyelid surgery. Often, patients don't realize how much their sagging eyelids contributed to the signs of tiredness and aging until they see how much younger and more rested they appear after the surgery.
Benefits of eyelid surgery:
- Eyelid Surgery eliminates loose or sagging skin around the eyes
- Eyelid Surgery restores the natural shape to the upper eyelid
- Eyelid Surgery eliminates upper eyelid excess skin that impairs vision
- Eyelid Surgery can keep you looking at least 5 to 7 years younger
- Eyelid Surgery removes fat that causes puffiness in the upper lids
- Eyelid Surgery corrects bags, droopiness and excess skin of the lower eyelids
What does eyelid surgery do?
- It refreshes and rejuvenates the look by eliminating certain features that contribute to make an individual look older and tired, such as the 'bags' beneath the eyes and the excess skin in the 'drooping' upper eyelids.
- It eliminates lumps generated by the accumulation of fat inside the eyelids.
- It improves the sight by reducing the upper eyelids when they droop too much and interfere with the vision.
- It brightens the look and is often performed together with a temporal face lift.
What does eyelid surgery NOT do?
- It does not eliminate crow's feet.
- It does not eliminate dark circles under the eyes.
- It does not lift the eyebrows nor does it change their shape. If you think your eyebrows are too low or too straight, please read the information on brow lift surgery that we provide.

Eyelid surgery can treat:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
- Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye)
The SurgeryThe surgeon makes the incisions along the natural folds of the eyelids so that the resulting scars will be disguised. On the upper eyelids, the incision is done along the natural folds and, on the lower eyelids; it is done just below the eyelashes. In some cases, the incisions extend some millimeters beyond the corners of the eyes. Working through these incisions, the surgeon removes the excess fat that accumulates beneath the skin (two lumps in each upper eyelid and three in each lower eyelid). Apart from this, the surgeon removes the excess skin from the bags that give the appearance of 'hanging' eyes. After that, the incisions are closed with very fine sutures.
If you have fat lumps but you do not need to have any excess skin removed, your cosmetic surgeon may suggest a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. In this procedure, the incisions are made inside of the eyelids and they leave no visible scars; however, it is necessary for the skin to in great shape (thick, firm and elastic). This procedure is generally recommended for young patients.
What Anesthesia Is Used For Eyelid Surgery?Local anesthesia with sedation is most commonly used, if the eyelid surgery is combined with other procedures most likely general anesthesia will be used.
RecoveryDuring the first few days after surgery, you should rest quietly with your head elevated. Your cosmetic surgeon may instruct you to apply cold compresses to your eyelids. Initially, you may feel a "tight" sensation around the eyes and some mild discomfort that can be controlled with oral medication. During the first 48 hours following surgery, patients experience varying degrees of swelling and bruising. Mild swelling may persist for several weeks. Bruising typically disappears within seven to ten days. Within the first week or so, you will be permitted to use makeup, if desired, to conceal any discoloration. Stitches are usually removed within a week of surgery.
RisksThe decision to have eyelid surgery is extremely personal and you'll have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable.
During your personal consultation the doctor and anesthesiologist will explain in detail the risks associated with surgery. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks or potential complications.
Eyelid surgery risks:
- Dry eyes
- Blood clots
- Fluid accumulation
- Unfavorable scarring
- Temporarily blurred or impaired vision
- Difficulty closing your eyes
- Lid lag, a pulling down of the lower eyelid may occur and is often temporary
- Ectropion, rolling of the eyelid outwards
- Bleeding (hematoma)
- Poor wound healing
- Numbness and other changes in skin sensation
- Anesthesia risks
- Loss of eyesight
- Pain, which may persist
- Skin discoloration and swelling
- Sutures may spontaneously surface through the skin, become visible or produce irritation that require removal
- Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications
- Possibility of revision surgery
- Eyelid disorders that involve abnormal position of the upper eyelids (eyelid ptosis), loose eyelid skin, or abnormal laxness of the lower eyelid (ectropion) can coexist with sagging forehead and eyebrow structures; brow lift surgery will not correct these disorders; additional surgery may be required
"Most of the risks are very uncommon; some people may be at higher risk than others. Your doctor will discuss this with you during your consultation if any of these risks are specifically pertinent to you."Although eyelid surgery can be an effective procedure where the benefits significantly outweigh the risks, like everything in the practice of medicine and surgery, it is not an exact science. The degree of surgical success can be altered by how each individual's body responds to surgery and healing. Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure; revision surgery may be necessary.
Don't hesitate to ask questions: It's very important to ask questions about your eyelid surgery procedure. It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don't be shy about discussing these feelings and any specific concerns with your doctor or any of our staff members.
