This operation may be done alone, or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenating procedures such as a facelift.
The surgery is usually done in local anesthesia, correcting always the alteration analyzed during the preliminary examination. This correction will not remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles around the eyes, this is a common delusion. These wrinkles may be eliminated by laser application. However the sagging eyelids, the bags, dark shades under the eyes will disappear.

The stitches will generally be removed on the 5th day, by this time the major part of bruising will be gone. 1 week, 10 days after the procedure, the traces of the operation may become completely invisible by applying a light makeup.
