Blepharoplasty in Kharkiv

Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery to change the eye shape and the eyelid shape, during which excess skin and fat tissue on the eyelids is removed. Blepharoplasty allows removing age-related bags under the eyes, drooping eyelids, folds and hernias under the eyes, as well as increasing the eye size. Types of blepharoplasty include:

  • blepharoplasty of upper eyelids;
  • blepharoplasty of lower eyelids;
  • circular blepharoplasty (plastic surgery of the upper and lower eyelids).

There are classical and transconjunctival methods of eyelid plastic surgery. According to the classical method, surgeons make incisions on the outer surface of the eyelid, and the seams are hidden in the natural folds of the skin. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is performed on the inner side of the eyelid, due to which its traces on the outer side are completely absent. You can get eyelid lifting in Kharkiv at the medical center “ON Clinic Kharkiv”.
