As its name suggests, circular liposuction is a liposuction procedure that focuses on the front and back of the body, a full treatment that encompasses the whole body.
If you only treat the front of the body, you may not achieve the waistline desired as the body does not just exist in two-dimensional space but three-dimensional space. For that reason, treating the patient from both sides of the body helps to achieve maximal contouring.
The surgery is commonly done under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Sometimes surgery is performed under general anesthesia as a same day hospital stay. Upper-eyelid surgery involves making incisions along the natural crease of the upper eyelid, removing any loose excess skin, trimming and tightening any stretched eyelid muscles, and lifting the eyelid tissue to give the eyes a fresher and more youthful appearance. Lower eyelid-surgery is performed to help reduce the appearance of puffy bags underneath the eyes. In order to accomplish this, excess fat is removed from the area underneath the eyes. Some fat is left in the area so that the under eyes do not have a sunken appearance.
It’s extremely important that you fill out your paperwork correctly regarding any medications or supplements you take as they might interfere with the smoothness and safety of your surgery. Also, if you’re a smoker, you should stop smoking at least 15 days prior to your procedure.
No. The operation will be painless for you. This applies for both general and local anesthesia.
Bruising and swelling are common following surgery, and application of cold to the surgical sites is generally recommended after surgery. Many people experience excessive tear production and temporary blurred vision, and some also report an increased sensitivity to light. A postoperative visit is required 3 to 4 days after surgery to remove any sutures. The incisions for the procedure are made along the natural creases of the eyelid. This is to ensure that when the incision fully heals, any post-surgical marks are well-hidden. While blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes, it does not prevent the eyelids from being affected by aging. It is important that you protect your eyelids from direct sunlight by applying sunscreen in order to preserve your results for as long as possible.
From the tenth day after the operation, you can apply makeup without any restrictions. But be careful when removing make-up: do not rub make-up on, only spot it on.
Starting the third day after surgery, shower water and soap in the wound area are not dangerous, as long as you do not rub your eyelids.
While many patients return to work 1 to 2 weeks after blepharoplasty, it may take several weeks for your swelling to subside completely. You should be able to see your results in about 4 to 6 weeks following your surgery but the final result might take a few months to show.
The results of blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) are generally long lasting. It’s not uncommon for the longevity of results to vary slightly between patients, but you can expect the results of upper eyelid surgery to last about 5 to 7 years, and lower eyelid surgery results are essentially permanent.
