In the context of aesthetics, the eyes area is significant to one’s good appearance, regardless of age. This is a clear sign of one’s care. Medicine has been developing rapidly and therefore is able to offer an increasing range of treatments designed to reduce the changes in the around-eye areas.

The body ageing process manifests through an excessive amount of cutaneous tissue within the lower or upper eye-lids area. Not only is this an aesthetic problem; the process results may also significantly impair daily life. Eyelid plastic surgery is the solution – blepharoplasty is a safe way to improve one’s appearance.

Blepharoplasty is the procedure whose aim is to remove both excess skin and fat-pads. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia.

Other surgical procedures: eye-lid entropion correction, eyelid eversion, abnormal eyelashes grow, excision of pathological lesions on the eyelids, i.e. s, papillomas, birthmarks, cysts, chalazions and others.

Is a very important part of our body. It is exposed to the constant influence of external factors, so it is important to diagnose changes, improve, and adjust the fit early. Protects the eyeball from harmful external influences such as UV radiation and injuries.

 

It is a complex mechanism. The proper functioning of our eyes depends on the proper alignment of the eyelids in relation to the eyeball, examination of eyelash growth, and appropriate adjustment and drainage of tears.

Eye protection organs:

  • eyelids with browbones and eyelashes
  • the conjunctiva of the eyelids and eyeball
  • lacrimal organ

Time and the aging process may lead to the loss of protective functions and the malfunction of the eye surface. This, in turn, may cause reduced visual function.

At the Plus Med Medical Center, we perform many oculoplastic procedures, including the treatment of irregularities in the protective apparatus of the eye. Treatments are aimed at restoring the correct position of the eyelid.

We perform the following treatments:

  • curl and eye curl correction
  • correction of incorrectly growing eyelashes
  • excision of pathological changes on the eyelids, i.e. yellow tufts, papillomas, moles, cysts, chalazions, and others.

A specialist in the field of oculoplastic deals with the treatment of ailments related to the protective apparatus of the eye.

Oculoplastic procedures, which concern changes on the eyelids and around the eyes, rejuvenate the eye area, improve their appearance, and improve vision.

Most procedures are performed as part of one-day surgery. Most procedures are performed under local anesthesia. You may need painkillers after the procedure.

The most common oculoplastic procedure is blepharoplasty, i.e. correction of drooping eyelids. The problem concerns people whose skin of the upper eyelids loses its firmness and flabby, creating the so-called overhangs on the eyelids that may limit the field of vision.

Blepharoplasty is plastic surgery to remove excess eyelid skin. In our Center, we use the Monalisa Touch™ laser for these treatments.

Excessive skin folds in the upper eyelids give the impression of a tired look. The surgical incision is made with a laser or scalpel in the line of the wrinkle and the natural skin break, which minimizes the visibility of the scar.

Correction of eyelid deviation

It occurs when the edge of the eyelid does not stick to the surface of the eyeball. The consequence is a chronic inflammation of the conjunctiva and the surface of the eyeball and the drying out of the eyeball. The eyeball, devoid of a protective natural barrier, is exposed to viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. The long-term condition can lead to corneal degeneration.

Roll up the eyelid

It is an inversion of the edge of the eyelid towards the eyeball, which results in persistent irritation of the conjunctiva and cornea by incorrectly arranged eyelashes. It leads to eye pain, inflammation, excessive tearing, and reduced visual acuity. The long-term condition may lead to corneal ulceration and degenerative changes.

Drooping of the eyelid affects the upper eyelid and is most often associated with tissue aging. A characteristic feature is the low position of the eyelid, which can cause limitation of the field of view. Drooping of the eyelids gives the face a sad look and forces the head to be specially positioned to see better.

Eyelid tumors

These are usually benign lesions with no tendency to become malignant. We perform excision of the lesion with a reconstruction of the surrounding tissues and histopathological examination of the tumor. Depending on the result of the morphological examination of the tumor, we implement appropriate treatment.

Eyelid regurgitation

It is caused by the paralysis of the facial nerve. The paralysis of the facial nerve is usually permanent and therefore there is a risk of deterioration of vision and, in extreme cases, loss of the eye. One of the most effective methods of treatment is the implantation of an implant made of gold or platinum in the upper eyelid.

Yellow tufts

They appear most often on the upper eyelids. These changes cause only an aesthetic problem. The yellow tuft removal procedure is very popular.

Hail removal

It is a change in the eyelids that occurs on both the upper and lower eyelids. It is a local, chronic inflammation resulting from blockage of the Meibomian gland. The lesion is usually not painful but causes irritation and redness of the eye, sometimes swelling of the eyelid. Removal of the hail

Depending on the needs, each oculoplastic procedure is planned individually. The patient is also informed about the course of a given procedure, recommendations, and possible complications.
