Me ingresaron la noche anterior para hacer más cómodo el proceso ya que la cirugía era a primera hora. El trato de las enfermeras fue excelente las instalaciones acogedoras. La Dra. Medina es sumamente profesional antes durante y después del proceso su profesionalidad y aptitudes han sido totalmente más de lo que esperaba de un cirujano. Al elegirla. Hice la mejor elección al poner mi salud en excelentes manos. Los resultados han sido lo que quería con lo cual me siento muy satisfecha de haberme operado con mi cirujana estrella Tania Medina

Dr. Alejandro and his staff are absolutely wonderful! I felt cared about throughout the entire process. The communication is fabulous. They answered all of my questions and took amazing care of me. The morning of my procedure the doctors and support staff were upbeat, friendly, and very caring. After my procedure, they had me rest/sleep for 4 - 5 hours in a recovery room that was dimly lit, had relaxing music playing with nature scenes on the tv. I believe they even had aromatherapy and a salt rock lamp. I had a nurse in the room with me the entire time who was so compassionate to everything I was going through. A doctor called my husband halfway through the surgery to let him know that everything was going well. Then Dr. Alejandro called him once the surgery was over to let him know they were done and I was recovering. In the days since my procedure, they've checked in on me several times. I am so glad that I chose elaen and Dr. Alejandro & I'm recommending my friends come to have the same procedure with him.

I’m writing to share my experience with My Medical Vacations in Cancun Mexico. From the time I arrived with my husband, Katie Ana and Betty took excellent care of us. We were picked up from the airport taken to all of my medical appointments. I had some concerns about surgery and Betty spoke with me in detail and addressed all my concerns and fears. I felt conformable – safe in their care and in Cancun. I had Blepharoplasty with Dr. Torres and Rhinoplasty with Dr. Montalvo, both surgeons were excellent and truly skilled at their craft. I had daily post-surgical visit from Ana our sweet nurse, who came to our hotel to make sure I was healing properly. My overall experience was wonderful and I absolutely love my results. I´m planning on coming back in the future. I highly recommend My Medical Vacations to anyone considering cosmetic surgery in Cancun. You´ll be in excellent hands. Than you all for your care and support. All the best, Karma Shanti Virginia-USA

I was very pleased with Dr. Picard-Ami and the cosmetic surgery he did on me five months ago. Dr. Picard-Ami was professional, very thorough from the first correspondence we had and extremely prompt in responding to any of my questions and concerns before and after surgery. My husband and I stayed at the Marriott which is located in the same complex as Dr. Picard-Ami’s office is. His staff took care of every detail from transporting me to the clinic where only plastic surgery is done (no worry of being with any Covid patients), kept my husband informed of everything during and after my surgery and checked on me daily. Walking to their offices after the surgery for follow up appointments was easy and convenient. Having any procedure during a pandemic is scary but at no time was I apprehensive about the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Picard-Ami and his staff if you are considering cosmetic surgery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and it was as painless as they promised.

Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) Overview

An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess skin, fat and loose muscles from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelids have a very strong influence on a person’s face and particularly their expression. With an eyelid lift, you can enhance your expression and improve your overall appearance.

 

The signs of aging begin around the eyes. An eyelid lift targets drooping eyelids which are the result of years of hard work and stress. These factors can also contribute to the deeply hanging bags under the lower eyelid. The eyelid lift procedure corrects these unwanted testaments of age.

 

Blepharoplasty can also enhance your vision if your eyelids are drooping excessively. Your true age doesn’t have to be revealed from your eyes. Recovering from an eyelid lift will shield minimal discomfort if you follow the surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully.

 

An eyelid lift can also be a medical solution to ptosis. Ptosis can be the result of abnormal muscle reactions, stroke, a brain tumor or diabetes. Eyelid lift surgery can correct drooping eyelids from such conditions. The cost of an eyelid lift might be covered partially or fully by your insurance company if it is for medical reasons.

 

An eyelid lift can be carried out in conjunction with other facial procedures such as facelift or nose surgery. Book yourself a consultation with a plastic surgeon so you can discuss if you are a good candidate for an eyelid lift. During this consultation he or she will also explain the eyelid lift risks and side effects so you are aware of them.

 

The old and tired appearance of your eyes does not need to be permanent. An eyelid lift can rejuvenate your face and make you feel great about the way you look.

 

A Good Candidate for Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

An eyelid lift is a solution for people wanting to get rid of visible stress and aging that begin to show around their eyes. Most people wanting to correct for drooping eyelids are good candidates for an eyelid lift but blepharoplasty is not for everyone.

 

Your plastic surgeon will talk to you about your reasons for surgery and your desired outcome as well as examine your natural facial features to determine if you are a good candidate for an eyelid lift.

 

Age is not a major factor when being considered for the eyelid lift procedure. However, most candidates are between 40 and 50 years of age. These patients have upper eyelids that may have begun to sag and lower eyelids that appear as bags under the eyes. Their hanging upper eyelids may make them look constantly tired or angry.

 

Drooping eyelids is a common sign of aging and an eyelid lift is mostly designed for older patients wanting to refresh their eye area. It can also be a solution for people in their 20s and 30s who suffer from hereditary drooping eyelids.

 

Regardless of the age, good candidates for eyelid lift surgery understand and accept the risks and side effects of an eyelid lift. While preparing for your eyelid lift you may realize that you are also a good candidate for other facial surgeries such as a facelift or nose surgery.

 

It is important for patients to communicate exactly what they wish to accomplish through their eyelid lift. For example, an eyelid lifts will not target wrinkles. It can help reduce the size and depth of wrinkles but a facelift or brow lift is better designed to combat deep wrinkles.

 

A good candidate for an eyelid lift needs to be emotionally and physically healthy. Patients will not be considered for surgery if certain diseases such as high blood pressure, hypothyroidism or glaucoma exist.

 

Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) Procedure

An eyelid lift offers men and women the chance to eliminate unwanted signs of aging that have begun to appear around their eyes.

 

The eyelid lift procedure is usually performed under a local anesthesia but some surgeons may also supply sedatives to calm and relax patients. Belpharoplasty is rarely carried out under general anesthesia.

 

The surgeon makes incisions along the natural creases or folds of the eyelid so that the scar won’t be visible. Occasionally, the surgeon will make the incisions on the inside of the eyelid which results in no scarring. The surgeon removes excess fat through the incisions and cuts away excess skin.

 

Loose eyelid muscles will also be tightened during the eyelid lift procedure in order to help smooth the skin and decrease wrinkles. The eyes will be bandaged after surgery and you will be taken to a recovery room where to be monitored for a few hours. Eyelid lift surgery is normally an outpatient procedure so you will not have to stay overnight in hospital.

 

The most important thing to do now is focus on healing during your eyelid lift recovery!

 

Average Duration of Eyelid Lift Surgery: 1-3 three hours, depending on the amount of work involved. If you are having any other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift at the same time as your blepharoplasty, then the surgery time will be longer.
