What causes sagging eyelids?

This area of the face is often one of the first parts to show signs of aging (bags of fat, drooping eyebrows and wrinkles under the eyes) because the eyelid skin and underlying fascia are very thin. There are a number of different factors that can cause a person’s upper or lower eyelid to sag. These factors usually include genetic factors such as skin thickness, as well as environmental influences such as sun exposure and whether or not the person is a smoker. Sagging eyelid skin is such a common concern that eyelid surgery in Tunisia is consistently among the top facial cosmetic surgeries in Tunisia.

Blepharoplasty in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step in cosmetic eyelid surgery is the pre-operative assessment. The surgeon asks you questions about your general health. He will then evaluate your eyelids and eyes to determine what type of surgery you need (droopy eyelid surgery, laser blepharoplasty…). Afterwards, he or she will discuss your expectations with you to see if they are realistic or not. He or she should also tell you about the risks and inform you of the recovery time and cost of eyelid surgery in Tunisia.

How does cosmetic surgery of the eyelids take place in Tunisia?

Blepharoplasty can be performed under local or general anesthesia. It depends on the number of eyelids to be operated on, the type of changes to be made and the patient’s preferences. Eyelid surgery in Tunisia generally lasts between 30 minutes and 2 hours. The duration of hospitalization is 1 day.

The surgeon begins by making incisions, making sure that they are hidden in natural folds. This is to prevent future scars from being visible.

 The skin incisions of the upper eyelids are concealed in the crease that is located halfway up the eyelid (between the fixed and mobile parts of the eyelid).
 The skin incisions of the lower eyelids are placed 1 to 2 mm under the eyelashes. They can sometimes extend a little outside.

It is from these small incisions that the excess fat, muscle and skin will be removed. Once this removal is done, the incisions are stitched with very fine threads. In the case of a lower blepharoplasty, a re-tensioning of the eyelids may also be required in order to tighten the lower eyelid margin.

*Disclaimer: results may vary from one person to another depending on patient morphology

Blepharoplasty in Tunisia is rarely painful, but you may feel a sensation of discomfort, tension in the eyelids and a slight irritation of the eyes. The latter are watery during the first days which can cause visual disorders. A treatment with a hydrating eye drop can be prescribed to relieve these symptoms. It should be noted that it may be difficult or impossible to close the eyelids completely during the first few days.

Edema (swelling) and bruising of the eyelids usually occurs for 4 to 7 days.

It is recommended to rest and avoid physical exertion during the first few days.

  • Regarding anesthesia: 

    During the consultation, the anesthesiologist will inform the patient of the risks of anesthesia. It is important to know that anesthesia induces reactions in the body that are sometimes unpredictable and more or less easy to control: the fact of having recourse to a perfectly competent anesthesiologist, practicing in a truly surgical context, means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.

    Indeed, techniques, anesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is performed outside of an emergency and on a person in good health.

    Regarding the surgical procedure:

    By choosing a qualified and competent Plastic Surgeon, trained in this type of intervention, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however eliminating them completely. Med Assistance Tunisia collaborates with the best plastic surgeons in the country. Fortunately, real complications are rare following a blepharoplasty performed according to the rules. In practice, the vast majority of procedures are carried out without any problems and patients are fully satisfied with their results.

    However, despite their rarity, you should be aware of possible complications:

     Hematomas: most of the time without gravity, they must be evacuated if they are too important.
    Infection: this is easily treated with minor local care.
    Healing abnormalities
    Epidermal cysts: often eliminate spontaneously.
    Disorders of tear secretion
    Ptosis: (difficulty in opening the upper eyelid completely): very rare, except over 70 years of age
    Lagophthalmos: (inability to close the upper eyelid completely): possible in the first few days following the operation
    Ectropion (downward retraction of the lower eyelid): fades after a few weeks of massage to soften the eyelid.
