ENHANCED SURGICAL METHODS FOR PERMANENT RESULTS WITH NO SCARRING

Dr. Rajko and Dr. Dinko Toncic pay special attention to performing the blepharoplasty without leaving visible traces of the surgery or folds on the eyelids; they focus on achieving impeccable and permanent results. Therefore, we use radio surgery to perform a very precise incision without damaging the surrounding tissue. Also, we use special medical sutures that do not leave visible traces of the procedure.

ADVANTAGES OF BLEPHAROPLASTY PROCEDURE IN OUR CLINIC:

  • HIDDEN SURGICAL INCISION: using radio surgery, we make optimal surgical incision, that is hidden in the natural creases of the skin
  • NO TRACES OF STITCHES: we use sutures that are as thin as a human hair and put them below the skin layer, so there are no visible stitches
  • SPEEDY RECOVERY AFTER THE BLEPHAROPLASTY: minimally invasive approach enables speedy recovery for or patients
  • PERMANENT RESULTS: the results of the cosmetic eyelid surgery are permanent, which cannot be achieved with cosmetic treatments or massages
  • OVER 30 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WITH BLEPHAROPLASTY
  • MORE THAN 1000 SATISFIED BLEPHAROPLASTY PATIENTS IN OUR CLINIC

 

BLEPHAROPLASTY IN OUR CLINIC

During the preoperative preparation, we carefully make a drawing on the eyelids, in order to remove the optimal amount of skin and fatty pads. This is the point where our surgeons' perfectionism and an eye for the detail are best shown. This operation also requires surgeon’s sense of proportion and shaping. After the preoperative preparation, we follow the marks and precisely remove the excess skin and fatty tissue.

This operation is performed under enhanced local anaesthetic. The patient is asleep during the operation and the whole procedure is painless.

The patient stays in the clinic for 6 hours. It takes about an hour for preoperative preparations, and around an hour and a half for the operation itself, after which the patient rests. Once discharged from the surgery the patient is sent to home care.

RECOVERY AFTER THE PROCEDURES AND GETTING BACK TO WORK

Postoperative recovery after blepharoplasty is individual, usually lasting around 7 days after the operation.

For upper eyelid surgery, the stitches are removed 5 days after the surgery, while for lower eyelid blepharoplasty, the stitches are removed 7 days following the surgery.  Our patients can resume their personal and professional activities 10 days after the operation.

Physiological ageing process doesn’t affect everybody in the same way. Some of us are more prone to ageing, maybe because of our facial features, lifestyle or genetic base. With time, the skin looses its elasticity and consistency, especially in the area of eyelids where it is very thin. The eyelids change their appearance, slowly but surely, by forming excess skin bags, furrows and fatty pads, making the face look tired and old.

Excess skin and fatty tissue can only be removed by a surgical procedure – blepharoplasty. If necessary, those can be removed from both upper and lower eyelids. There are no cosmetic treatments or massages that can prevent or stop them.
