Upper blepharoplasty


Here we tell you all the secrets for the procedure of Upper Blepharoplasty or upper eyelid surgery in Madrid and Valencia, alone or combined with chemical peels, laser or fat transfer, by Dr. Villamarín

With upper blepharoplasty or upper eyelid surgery in Madrid and Valencia, also sometimes called upper eyelid lift surgery, Dr. Villamarín can restore a more youthful and vivacious look to your eyes. Your eyes and the structures around them go through many changes throughout your life. Unfortunately, these changes can often diminish the beauty of the eye area and give a feeling of fatigue or sadness. Common changes include: Stretching, excess, folds or wrinkles and loss of its elasticity, spots or color changes, sunken tissue or swollen eyelids. Upper blepharoplasty is the surgical procedure that reshapes the upper eyelids to rejuvenate them by removing age changes in the skin, fat, or muscle surrounding the eye.

When we want to rejuvenate our gaze and the region surrounding the upper eyelids, and non-surgical procedures do not convince the patient, they no longer work, or Dr.Villamarín clearly recommends a more effective solution for the case, we are ready to enter the operating room. Dr. Villamarín will study each case and look for procedures with less invasive surgery and performed under local anesthesia, to achieve excellent results. Depending on the situation and importance of the case, it could be framed in one of the 4 treatment levels for Madrid and Valencia BLEPHAROPLASTY PROGRAMS BY DR. VILLAMARIN, from the Scarless & Sutureless SS blepharoplasty or Blefaroplastia SS ® (without suture, without visible scars, including the upper eyelid through an innovative technique of Dr. Villamarín) at the most advanced level or AP (advanced plus) blepharoplasty or Blefaroplastia AP ®.

Sometimes it is recommended to combine upper blepharoplasty with lower blepharoplasty and with brow lift and forehead lift with or without surgery, when the case requires it. In addition, all this can be integrated with the rest of the face in FACIAL AESTHETIC PROGRAMS BY DR. VILLAMARIN in Madrid and Valencia, such as NEW AGE LIDS ®, FRESHLOOK TOUCH ® and FRESHLOOK RESCUE ®, LIFTING MADRID ® and PREVENT & ACT SKINCARE ®


Candidates for an upper blepharoplasty procedure with surgery should be in good general health, have mild to severe changes in the eyelids and periocular region, and have realistic expectations. They must not suffer from skin, infectious, immune or advanced thyroid diseases, severe dry eyes, hypertension or uncontrolled diabetes. It is strongly recommended not to smoke from 1 month before surgery to 1 month after surgery. The patient must not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Dr. Villamarín will meet with each patient individually to determine if they may benefit from a surgical eyelid lift. During this consultation, a thorough examination of the eyebrows, eyelids, vision, the eyes themselves (ophthalmological examination with fundus), tear production and the face will be carried out.

The objectives, benefits, results and alternatives (blepharoplasty without surgery) will be discussed with Dr. Villamarín and then he will design a detailed and adapted or tailor-made treatment plan for each patient. In the case of blepharoplasty surgery in Madrid and Valencia, a preoperative procedure will be ordered and postoperative recommendations will be provided in accordance with the protocol for said procedure.


What kind of anesthesia do we use?

Local anesthesia, with or without sedation, which may include anesthetic creams and anesthetic eye drops for the insertion of protective shields for eye and vision safety, considered by Dr. Villamarín (also an ophthalmic or eye surgeon) to be essential for patient safety (safe procedure or Safe Surgery & Procedures Protocol) and applied to all procedures that are close to the eye.


Following the safety protocol specifically designed by Dr. Villamarín, whenever possible we use cannulas for the injection of any substance, be it anesthetic or a filler, instead of needles, to minimize the possibility of serious complications.

Sometimes we use procedures without stitches or without scars on the skin, whenever possible. Surgical assistance with laser or radiofrequency is routine, unless contraindicated. The use of peels or lasers and cosmeceutical treatment may be recommended. Sometimes orbital fat transposition or even fat transfer is added, in selected cases. Dr. Villamarín tends to the minimum invasion and to resect the minimum amount of skin, muscle and fat required for the best result, thus avoiding complications such as retraction, subsidence, the look of a frightened person or an unnatural image, bad position of the eyelids, or severe dry eyes. It is what Dr. Villamarín calls preservation blepharoplasty in Madrid and Valencia.

Depending on the level of action decided, there are various techniques that can be applied following the Blepharoplasty programs of Dr. Villamarín.

Sometimes it is only necessary to resect the skin, with the technique called PINCH BLEPHAROPLASTY, and Dr. Villamarín uses very fine and buried sutures to avoid visible scars.

Sometimes it can be combined with various procedures, including blepharoplasty, brow lift and forehead lift, face lift, facial lipofilling, anti-wrinkle neuromodulators, fillers, thread lifts, lasers or peels and regenerative medicine. These combinations can be obtained with the other innovative programs for oculofacial aesthetics of Dr. Villamarín.
